Vaccination Information - All Campus

On Tuesday, July 27, the CSU announced that students, faculty and staff must be vaccinated by September 30 against COVID-19 if they are accessing campus facilities at any university location across the 23 campuses, regardless of FDA approval of the available vaccines approved for emergency use. Auxiliary employees as well as volunteers and other unpaid appointments are also subject to this policy. The CSU’s COVID-19 vaccination policy will allow medical and religious exemptions.

SJSU Mask Policy

On Thursday, July 22, SJSU announced that the university now strongly recommends students, faculty and staff who are fully vaccinated wear a mask indoors. This follows Santa Clara County's announcement in which they strongly urged employers to consider implementing COVID-19 policies that require employees to be fully vaccinated as soon as possible.

Individuals who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear a mask indoors at all times, when in a shared vehicle for a university-sponsored activity, conducting field research tasks requiring interactions, and when outdoors and it is not possible to maintain six feet of physical distance from others. 

There are a few exceptions where individuals not fully vaccinated are not required to wear a mask: 1) Alone in a vehicle when conducting a university-sponsored activity; 2) Alone in a private office with the door closed; 3) If the work you are conducting cannot be achieved safely with a mask in place; or 4) If an individual has an approved accommodation. Individuals who are not vaccinated and who do not have a private space indoors to take breaks or eat should do so outside.
