​California State University Chancellor Joseph I. Castro today released the following statement on Governor Gavin Newsom's outline of the next step in the state's pandemic recovery: 
“I am encouraged by Governor Newsom's announcement that California has administered 20 million vaccinations—and outlining steps for our state's continued recovery from the global pandemic. 
“As regions throughout California continue to make significant progress in our collective effort to defeat COVID-19, I am increasingly optimistic about the California State University's ability to return to delivering a majority of classes and activities in person in the fall.  
“We are certainly on the right path, both as a state and as the nation's largest four-year public university. We must keep doing our part by wearing a mask and getting vaccinated when it's our turn. 
“I am grateful to California's leadership—in both the public and private sectors—and to those on the front lines whose hard work has helped our state reach 20 million vaccinations—a truly remarkable milestone."
