COVID-19 Vaccinations and Other Safety Measures – Policy Revision

Effective April 6, 2023, COVID-19 vaccinations are recommended as a safety measure to help prevent serious illness, but CSU students and employees will no longer be required to be fully vaccinated. Students and employees are required to continue to comply with all other health and safety measures (e.g., COVID-19 surveillance testing, face coverings, physical distancing, etc.) established by the campus, or federal/state/local laws and regulations, as appropriate. The policy also gives each President the authority (in consultation with the Chancellor) to require vaccination for individuals on their campus. Prior to implementing any such requirement for represented CSU employees, the campus would be subject to any applicable meet and confer obligations under the Higher Education Employer-Employee Relations Act.
