CSUN as One

  • CSUN as One

Health and Safety

With the health and safety of students, faculty and staff at the forefront of our preparations, here’s an overview of the important health and safety protocols you can expect.

Safe Students

What You Need to Do

  • Perform a daily screening before coming to CSUN. The Student Screening Survey asks individuals to report a temperature at or over 100.4 and other symptoms or risk factors for COVID.
  • Wear an acceptable face covering at all times while on campus. Acceptable face coverings include any mask, bandana or scarf that covers the nose and mouth and fits snuggly against the face with secured ties/ear loops.
  • Maintain 6’ social distancing. Please see the CDC’s updated definition of “close contact.”
  • Adhere to hand washing and hygiene requirements.
  • The CSUN Fall 2020 Student Safety Training Video includes a broad range of information about the measures that will be taken by the university and students to support a safe and healthy campus environment. All students are strongly encouraged, and students coming to campus are required, to see this video as soon as possible, but not later than the second class session. To receive required confirmation of viewing this training, please access the video by logging in with your CSUN User ID and password, and watching the video through its completion.
  • The CSU Office of the Chancellor and CSUN strongly recommend that all students, faculty, and staff obtain an influenza vaccination for the 2020-2021 flu season; to help prevent infection with flu virus that could cause serious illness and even death and to prevent the virus’ spread to colleagues and classmates. Getting a flu shot this September or October may reduce your chances of getting influenza; and if you do get sick, your symptoms may be less severe. What’s more, this Fall and Winter, with the COVID-19 pandemic still active, it’s possible that individuals may become infected with both COVID-19 AND influenza. Per the CDC, those at high risk for flu are also at higher risk for COVID-19, and may end up needing hospitalization and intensive care. Preventing the flu with the flu shot keeps our healthcare system from being overwhelmed and our community healthier.
  • According to the CDC:
    Why is it important for influenza (flu) vaccines to be given during the COVID-19 pandemic?
    Efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, such as stay-at-home and shelter-in-place orders, have led to decreased use of routine preventive medical services, including immunization services. Ensuring that people continue or start getting routine vaccinations during the COVID-19 pandemic is essential for protecting people and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases and outbreaks, including flu. Routine vaccination prevents illnesses that lead to unnecessary medical visits and hospitalizations, which further strain the healthcare system.

    For the upcoming flu season, flu vaccination will be very important to reduce flu because it can help reduce the overall impact of respiratory illnesses on the population and thus lessen the resulting burden on the healthcare system during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    A flu vaccine may also provide several individual health benefits, including keeping you from getting sick with flu, reducing the severity of your illness if you do get flu and reducing your risk of a flu-associated hospitalization.

Maintaining the health and safety of our students, employees and visitors is our top priority. CSUN has developed “Safety Protocols for On-Campus Students and Visitors” to provide important standard measures guided by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) recommendations. We request that you familiarize yourself with these procedures before visiting campus.

What We Are Doing

  • Preparing and sanitizing facilities in compliance with health authority recommendations.
  • Strategic placement of sanitizer and hand-washing stations around campus.
  • Designating temperature screening stations for specialized units when feasible.
  • Separating workstations and areas to support physical distancing.
  • Providing needed sanitization supplies for hands, surfaces, work areas, restrooms.
  • Designating specific entry and exit points for classrooms and work areas.
  • Limiting the number of individuals in a classroom, work area or elevator to allow for 6-foot distancing.
  • Limiting restroom use to one individual at a time or 6-foot distancing for multi-stall bathrooms.
  • Placing signs and floor stickers to promote health, safety and social distancing across campus.
  • Making stairwells and aisles “one-way” when possible.

Student Health and Wellness Services

Student Health Services

Students continue to enjoy a robust range of health services through a combination of on-site and Telehealth services including acute primary care, triage nurse, immunizations, required physicals, clinician-ordered laboratory tests, dental services, optometry services and more.

For Telehealth services, please call (818) 677-3666 option 1 to schedule an appointment. See the Klotz Student Health Center https://www.csun.edu/shc for additional information.

Counseling Services

University Counseling Services (UCS) is committed to supporting CSUN students’ mental health, well-being, and academic success. Students receive mental health services – including initial brief screening appointments, crisis/urgent care services, individual and couples counseling, groups and workshops, psychiatric services and case management – through telemental health (phone and video sessions via Zoom Health), as well as group counseling and workshops.

Community Resources

The Office of Community Engagement provides an informational hub where faculty, staff and students can find resources offered by local community organizations. Visit the connect page for up-to-date information that addresses financial, mental health and basic needs, as well as resources for parents and undocumented students.

Safe Employees

What you need to do:

  • On a daily basis, prior to reporting to work, submit an Employee Screening Survey via the CSUN app; based on your result, you will receive an immediate message and email stating you are cleared to report to work or to stay home with further instructions; if cleared for work, share the email with your administrator.
  • Wear face coverings at all times; The face covering may be removed in a private office or cubicle with 6-foot distancing.
  • Maintain 6’ social distancing. Please see the CDC’s updated definition of “close contact.”
  • Adhere to hand washing and work-space hygiene requirements.
  • Consult with your health care provider about coming to work if you are at an increased risk for severe illness due to older age or underlying medical conditions. Please see CDC Guidance: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/need-extra-precautions/index.html

CSUN has developed “Safety Protocols for On-Campus Work” which provide other important standard procedures guided by Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Los Angeles County Public Health (LACDPH) recommendations. All employees are required to complete CSUN’s on-line COVID-19 workplace training module, Return to Campus Guide for Employees, acknowledging their commitment to supporting these campus health and safety standards.

For information about training for students, employees may view the CSUN Fall 2020 Student Safety Training Video that includes a broad range of information about the measures that will be taken by the university and students to support a safe and healthy campus environment by logging in with your CSUN User ID and password. Students coming to campus are required, to see this video as soon as possible, but not later than the second class session, and all students have been strongly encouraged to view it.

COVID-19 Coordinators

Each department has assigned a “COVID-19 Coordinator” who will schedule space assessments, provide resources & support, and disseminate important updates and information.

Office Environment Evaluations

CSUN Environmental Health and Safety has developed a COVID-19 Office Evaluation tool to assist individual departments with assessing their work areas with respect to social distancing provisions, employee and customer workflow and staging, special signage needs, shared space considerations, and other factors relevant to health and safety. The campus is in the process of procuring resources such as plexiglass workspace dividers, queue control stanchions, standard signage and floor decals, etc. to assist with necessary space modifications identified through departmental assessments. Campus contacts for assistance in space assessments, material and equipment needs, and guidance on specific health and safety considerations are provided in the Campus Resources section below.

Departmental “Starter Kits”

To assist departments, CSUN has developed kits with basic resources to support space planning and workspace hygiene protocols. The kits include:
  • Space layout and social distancing examples for individual work spaces, conference rooms, and public areas Lists of campus resources and contacts
  • Basic directional signage and floor decals;
  • Wall posters with hygiene protocols and resource information;
  • A 30-day supply of hand sanitizer & disinfecting wipes;
  • Face coverings to address unique circumstances.

Classroom and Laboratory Guidelines

The campus has conducted assessments of laboratories and lecture spaces to support necessary teaching and research activities this fall. Specific safety protocols for research activities have been developed and may be found here: (insert link).

Employee Resources

Our Human Resources team continues to be available to managers and employees to assist with resources available to employees specific to COVID-19. These include but are not limited to leave options, accommodations, telecommute options, working effectively and safely at home and paycheck information. More information on these resources can continue to be found here.

Mental health resources

In addition, as a CSUN employee, when you or your family members (your dependents and permanent household members) need helpful guidance, problem assessment, short-term counseling, and/or referral to local resources, our Employee Assistance Program (LifeMatters) is available to assist you. Please refer to the following webpage for more information: https://www.csun.edu/benefits/lifematters-eap

Community Resources

The Office of Community Engagement provides an informational hub where faculty, staff and students can find resources offered by local community organizations.

COVID FAQs & Resources

What is coronavirus/COVID-19?

COVID-19 is the name of the novel (new) coronavirus that was has spread globally, including in the United States, and is responsible for our current pandemic.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats.

What is the latest information regarding COVID-19 testing?

COVID-19 Testing: What you need to know
You may be hearing about tests available that may indicate that you have COVID-19 or have been exposed to the virus. There are several types of tests that are available at this time with a doctor’s order, but their accuracy and clinical value vary. These tests are typically recommended for individuals with COVID-19 symptoms or close contacts of persons with COVID-19. We will keep students updated on test development and recommendations as research on test accuracy and value continues.

Some COVID-19 tests, which usually require swabbing the nose or mouth, or collecting saliva, may identify genetic parts or proteins from the COVID-19 virus. Other tests measure antibodies to coronaviruses from a blood sample that can hint that you may have been exposed to COVID-19, but cannot yet prove immunity or resistance to the virus. The links below, provided by LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics, describe details about each laboratory’s tests.

LabCorp COVID-19 Testing Options

Quest Diagnostics COVID-19 Information and Test Options

Students experiencing symptoms seen with COVID such as fever at or over 100.4 F, cough, and shortness of breath are advised to call the Klotz Student Health Center at 818 677-3666 and they will be advised of next best steps. Other non-chronic symptoms such as sore throat, body aches, and loss of sense of taste and/or smell, plus headache, nausea, and gastrointestinal disturbances have also been reported in some cases. COVID-19 testing at the SHC is currently limited to student patients as per their clinician’s clinical judgment. Please call the SHC for an appointment with a clinician at the number above.

Los Angeles County Testing: What you need to know
The City of Los Angeles, in partnership with the County of Los Angeles and CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort), is providing free drive-up mobile COVID-19 testing to Los Angeles County residents. For the general public, testing is currently available only for people with symptoms, such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms can now book a same or next day appointment. For certain high risk individuals, such as healthcare professionals on the front-lines, testing is available even if without experiencing symptoms. Testing may also be indicated without symptoms in people living or working in high-density setting.

The County of Los Angeles is now offering free drive-up mobile testing to symptomatic persons by appointment. For more information, please go to: https://covid19.lacounty.gov/testing/

For the latest information, please visit:
CDC Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Summary
County of Los Angeles Public Health COVID-19
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention COVID-19

How does it spread?

The virus is thought to spread mainly person-to-person: These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby, or be inhaled into the lungs.

People are thought to be contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest), but can spread the virus in the 48 hours before they develop symptoms.

It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

How can you help?

If you have recently recovered from COVID-19, please consider donating your plasma. If you know someone who has recently recovered from COVID-19, please share this information and encourage them to donate plasma.

Find more information here.

What are the symptoms of this infection?

Reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases.

Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure. Classic symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

But other symptoms can include:

Fatigue
Muscle or body aches
Headache
New loss of taste or smell
Sore throat
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Diarrhea

If you have symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath, call your doctor or the Klotz Student Health Center at 818-677-3666, and then press Option 1.

What do I do if I feel sick?

Do not come to campus if you feel sick.

If you have symptoms that might signal a COVID infection, call your doctor or the Klotz Student Health Center at 818-677-3666, and then press Option 1. Follow your doctor’s instructions, which, depending on the severity of your symptoms, may be to stay home and isolate yourself.

If your doctor instructs you to leave home, wear a face covering and stay 6 feet away from others. Avoid crowds and public transportation.

If you are sick, you should not attend class or work to ensure your own recovery and reduce the chance of infecting others.

What are the current isolation and quarantine recommendations?

  • Healthcare providers should instruct all symptomatic patients (presumed or confirmed) to isolate as per the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) and to provide all of their close contacts (including household members, intimate partners and caregivers) with home quarantine instructions.
  • Physicians have been encouraged to test symptomatic patients and close contacts of confirmed cases of COVID-19. A close contact is someone who has been within 6 feet of an infected person for 15 minutes or more, with or without masks.
  • A patient with COVID-19 is considered to be infectious from 48 hours before their symptoms started until their isolation period ends (as described in the Home Isolation Instructions). Asymptomatic patients with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 infection are considered to be infectious from 48 hours before their test was taken until 10 days after their test was taken.
  • Examples of close contacts include:
    • A household member, intimate contact, or caregiver,
    • An individual who was within 6 feet of the patient for more than 15 minutes,
    • An individual who had unprotected contact with the patient’s body fluids and/or secretions, for example, being coughed or sneezed on, sharing utensils or saliva, or providing care without wearing appropriate protective equipment.

    In the setting of widespread community transmission, anyone with signs or symptoms of viral respiratory tract infection should be presumed to have COVID-19 and immediately isolate themselves, following home isolation instructions. Prompt medical care should be sought if your symptoms get worse, especially if you have a condition that puts you at higher risk. This includes people who are age 65 years and older, are pregnant, or have a health problem such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, weak immune function, etc.

    Students with questions about COVID-19 and testing should call their doctor of the Klotz SHC at the number above. Employees with questions about COVID-19 and testing should call their doctor or healthcare provider/facility. If they cannot access their healthcare provider, employees can call the Klotz SHC to speak with an SHC physician for triage and referral to community resources.

  • CSUN continues to monitor ongoing research and recommendations from national and local public health agencies to implement safety protocols on campus to promote the health and wellness of our students, faculty, and staff. We wish good health to all of our community and beyond.

What information is available about food safety and COVID-19?

The following resources address food safety and COVID-19. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/food-and-COVID-19.html

Is the U.S. food supply safe?
According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), “Currently there is no evidence of food or food packaging being associated with transmission of COVID-19. … It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. However, it’s always critical to follow the 4 key steps of food safety — clean, separate, cook, and chill – to prevent foodborne illness.”

For more information, visit the FDA Food Safety and the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) website.

Reported COVID-19 Cases

CSUN cares about your health and safety and continues to track reported COVID-19 cases among members of our campus community, including students, faculty, and staff. To prevent COVID-19 transmission, most campus classes and activities remain virtual, and, to date, no one at CSUN has been infected on campus. If someone on campus is reported to have COVID-19, CSUN will work with Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to identify if they have had any close contacts while here. Close contacts are persons who have been closer than 6 feet to a COVID-infected individual for 15 minutes or more.) If so, CSUN will confidentially notify these close contacts, and ask them to call their doctor and self-quarantine for 14 days. Fortunately, CDC-recommended preventive measures such as frequent handwashing, physical distancing, and face coverings can help to protect you from COVID transmission.

  Reported Cases (updated weekly, data current through 10/26/20) Number of cases reported due to on-campus exposure Contact identification for on-campus exposure
Students 24 0 Completed
Employees 17 0 Completed

CSUN shares information about COVID-19 cases reported to CSUN by an individual or by a public health official. However, to preserve patient confidentiality, CSUN does not report identifiable names, affiliations or health conditions of students, faculty or staff who test positive for COVID-19. The university will also not disclose the specific location of the individual who was infected for privacy reasons. If needed, all campus locations possibly exposed will be appropriately cleaned and disinfected before reopening. Your best protection from COVID-19 is to maintain healthy practices such as physical distancing, wearing a face covering and washing your hands frequently as the best methods to lower your risk when you are outside your home.

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19 by your doctor, even if you haven’t been on campus, please notify CSUN Pandemic Manager, Yolanda Chassiakos, MD, by emailing linda.reid.chassiakos@csun.edu and providing a contact phone number where you can be reached. Your information will remain confidential at the Klotz Student Health Center, and Klotz will make a confidential courtesy call to confirm that you have necessary healthcare and will help you identify any close contacts on campus for whom quarantine and testing are recommended.
