Cal Poly’s comprehensive response to COVID-19 continues to keep our community informed and our campus operational. Our response, developed in coordination with the California State University and public health officials, prioritizes the health and well-being of our students, employees and surrounding community.
Campus Health and Wellbeing
Over the summer, Cal Poly's Campus Health and Wellbeing will provide medical care, including COVID-19 testing (if indicated), for students with symptoms or who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. These services are available to eligible Cal Poly students.
Student Quarantine and Isolation Guide
Cal Poly is here to support students who have received a positive COVID-19 test, who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 symptoms or has the virus. Visit this support guide for guidance if you are directed to isolate or quarantine.

Facilities Management and Development worked with partners across campus to safety welcome some students, faculty and staff back to campus in fall 2020. Learn more about these efforts and plans to prepare for fall 2021 on the FMD coronavirus response page.

Department of Emergency Management
From March 2020 through June 2021, Cal Poly’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) served as the centralized hub to plan and coordinate the university's response to COVID-19. The EOC demobilized at the end of June 2021, and the Department of Emergency Management will continue to monitor the pandemic and coordinate with stakeholders across campus.
