Mask Policy

August 4, 2021

Updated mask policy:

CSU requires all students, faculty, staff to wear masks indoors and sharing information on vaccination and testing resources on-campus

Following the July 27 recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that even fully vaccinated individuals should wear face coverings in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high community transmission, beginning on August 5, 2021, all CSU students, faculty, and staff, whether vaccinated or not, are required to wear masks indoors when on University property. The only exception to this is for vaccinated individuals alone in their private work or living spaces.

Updated Indoor Face Covering Guidance

  • All CSU students, faculty, staff and visitors must wear a face covering in University spaces indoors, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Students, faculty, staff, and visitors must wear a mask or face covering in all public spaces, including but not limited to:
    • Elevators, reception areas, cashier stations and all frequented similar spaces.
    • Conference and meeting rooms, all restrooms and while riding with others in university vehicles.
  • A face covering does not have to be worn when eating or drinking, or when alone in a private space, i.e. an office or room with the door closed if the individual is vaccinated or when alone in a vehicle.
  • This face covering requirement will remain in effect until new guidance is issued by the CDC, but the CSU community should all plan for the face covering requirement to be in effect when students return to campus this fall.
