Instructions for Returning to Campus After Spring Break 2021

This post was updated on

Update From President Struppa, March 16, 2021

With only 10 days before the number of students and faculty engaging in in-person instruction increases significantly, I want to reiterate the steps needed to return to campus. Faculty are required to teach HyFlex beginning March 29, unless they have an accommodation, and additional staff members are being recalled to campus following Spring Break.

Returning to Campus for the First Time

  • If this is your first time returning to campus since October, you must complete the steps to access campus facilities, including training, testing and screening, the week before your return. For example, if you are scheduled to return to campus on March 29, you will need to complete the process the week of March 22.

Testing Centers

  • Campus COVID-19 testing centers are open during Spring Break, however, both locations are closed on March 26 in observance of César Chávez Day. Please plan accordingly.
  • The rapid test provides results in under 30 minutes. Plan your test so you know your results BEFORE entering a campus facility. This may require adjusting your start time to accommodate the testing center hours.
  • To retain campus access, you must continue to take a COVID-19 test once each week. You may take your test on any day of the week.

Vaccination Protocols

Campus Buildings Unlocked

  • Beginning on March 29, campus buildings will be unlocked and your key card can be used to open offices and interior spaces.
  • If you are unable to gain access to a building or campus area, contact Public Safety, (714) 997-6763.
  • If your keycard needs reactivation, and you are approved to return to campus, please submit a request to our IS&T Service Desk. They can be reached via email or phone, (714) 997-6600.

Campus Access Processes

Students

You have the option to attend in-person classes or stay remote for the remainder of the academic year, and through summer courses. Please verify with faculty members that in-person instruction will be offered for each of your courses. If you will be accessing campus for the first time, or the first time since in-person instruction in October, please follow the student process for accessing campus.

Faculty

Unless you have been approved for an accommodation through Human Resources, the expectation is that you will be providing both in-person and remote instruction (HyFlex) beginning March 29. This is not optional and not based on the number of students planning to attend in person. If you will be accessing campus for the first time, or the first time since in-person instruction in October, please follow the faculty process for accessing campus.

Staff

If you have been recalled and will be accessing campus for the first time, or the first time since the recall in October, please follow the staff process for accessing campus.
