    Faculty/Staff Fall 2021 Planning Gateway

Faculty and Staff Fall Guidelines

CSUN faculty and staff are the team behind the team – the people providing a world-class education for students and to keep the university running. Whether you’re working on campus, working remotely or a hybrid of both this fall, we’re committed to providing you with the latest tools and information needed for your success on the job, with your health and safety as CSUN’s top priority.

The university’s efforts are aligned with recommendations from the California Department of Public Health, the California State University, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH), and CALOSHA to reduce or mitigate the risks of spreading or contracting COVID-19.

CSUN will continue to implement, update, and revise this information as public health officials and state and local agencies continue to publish new guidance for Institutions of Higher Education, workplace guidance, and specific tailored guidance for specialized programs offered by the University. The Emergency Operations Committee (EOC) will monitor the county guidance and campus updates on shifts will be provided as needed. You will receive such communication updates by e-mail and/or through your appropriate administrator.

Work Schedules

Schedule expectations

Work schedules are established in a manner to ensure that the university effectively deploys its human resources to meet its core mission and values while operating safely on campus and remotely.
  • During fall 2021, an increasing number of students will be engaged in instruction provided on campus while a significant number will continue to take classes virtually. In order to support the returning student population and operate the campus community with an on-campus population, in most cases, administrators and staff will be expected to rotationally work on campus during the Fall 2021 semester. Staffing needs will be determined to operationally support student and employee functions and needs whether on campus or accessing remotely.
  • Appropriate administrators will work with staff to assign on campus schedules. Based on operational needs, some phased repopulation efforts will start in summer, on or around July 6, 2021.
  • Faculty who are assigned face-to-face courses will work on campus to support these courses. As of the end of the 2020-21 academic year, over 50% of courses will be available for some form of face-to-face instruction in Fall 2021. Faculty may also have on-campus office hours, attend departmental meetings and work from their offices.
  • Administrators are asked to provide flexibility in scheduling around caretaker responsibilities to the extent possible, while factoring operational needs.
  • Administrators will also provide employees a minimum of 21 days’ notice of a return to campus work schedule. A 30-day notice is preferred, if operationally feasible.

Telecommute options

  • Employees working any portion of their assigned work schedule at home, during the Fall 2021 semester, will need to complete and submit a current CSUN telecommute agreement, approved by their appropriate administrator, to Human Resources by the start of the fall semester.
  • Telecommute agreements are not required for student employees.

Accommodations

  • Employees who have concerns about returning to work based on susceptibility to COVID-19 should consult with their medical provider and refer to the CDC guidance: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/need-extra-precautions/groups-at-higher-risk.html. Employees should share with their medical provider the campus safety protocols to demonstrate actions the campus is doing to protect them when working on campus.
  • Additionally, employees may request to explore a reasonable accommodation(s). Consistent with the request for accommodation process, medical certification will be required. Employees whose last name begins with A-K should contact Cari Morgan at cari.morgan@csun.edu and employees whose last name begins with L-Z should contact Karyn Cote at karyn.cote@csun.edu.

Exemptions will be provided for medical and/or religious reasons. The CSU is currently meeting with student groups and labor unions. We will share more information when it is available.

Please visit this page for updates on employee COVID-19 vaccination information.

Reporting COVID Cases and/or Potential Exposure

CSUN cares about your health and safety and continues to track reported COVID cases among members of our campus community, including students, faculty, and staff. A dashboard of reported cases may be accessed at https://www.csun.edu/csunasone/health-and-safety. The dashboard provides summary date only—no individual information is included.

If you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, even if you have not been on campus, please complete the Faculty and Staff Reporting Form.

Thereafter, you will be contacted by a Human Resources employee to conduct an intake and advise you of relevant quarantine protocols. Additionally, in compliance with California Assembly Bill 685, Human Resources will send e-mail notifications on potential exposure in specified building with instructions on your rights.

Contact Tracing / Quarantine Guidelines

The Klotz Student Health Center has trained contact tracers who will conduct contact tracing for the campus community. Employees will be advised to quarantine based on the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health guidance. The university will monitor and update guidance as changes are made by LACDPH.
  • Scenario 1 - If exposure to someone with COVID-19, employee will be advised they may not return to campus for 10 days from last date of exposure and to consult with their physician (monitor symptoms days 11-14). If an employee has been fully vaccinated (two weeks after final shot) there is no quarantine requirement.
  • Scenario 2 - If positive COVID test, employee will be advised they may not return to campus for 10 days from first day of symptoms and 24 hours with no symptoms without fever-reducing medication, or if no symptoms, 10 days after test date and to consult with their physician.
  • Scenario 3 – If exposure scenario becomes COVID-19 positive at a later date, quarantine timelines will be updated to be consisted with scenario 2.

Cleaning, Disinfecting and More

Information Sessions

Environmental Health and Safety is hosting a number of informational sessions on campus efforts around cleaning, disinfecting and air quality. Please see Fall 2021 Question and Answer sessions for times you may be interested in attending.

Cleaning and Disinfection

For the Fall 2021 Semester the University will provide additional/dedicated cleaning custodial services during both the day shift (7 AM–4 PM) and swing shift (4 PM-12 AM) to disinfect high touch surfaces* (throughout the day, provide mid-day use disinfection for classrooms (during un-occupied periods, as they exist), and ensure stocking on Do It Yourself (DIY) disinfection supplies to public spaces, classrooms, and laboratories.

The University cleaning and disinfection procedures for SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) are directly aligned with the current cleaning and disinfection recommendations from the following sources:

Current guidelines indicate that when no people with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 are known to have been in a space, cleaning once a day is usually enough to sufficiently remove virus that may be on surfaces and help maintain a healthy facility. If there has been a sick person or someone who tested positive for COVID-19 in your facility within the last 24 hours, each space will be cleaned and disinfected using enhanced cleaning protocols, focusing on the disinfection of high touch surfaces*; once a thorough cleaning and disinfection have been completed, the space can be reoccupied.

All employees involved with cleaning operations have been trained in proper cleaning techniques and tasks, including when to use personal protective equipment (PPE), what PPE is necessary, how to properly don (put on), use, and doff (take off) PPE, and how to properly dispose of PPE. Additionally, employees are trained on the hazards of the cleaning chemicals used in the workplace in accordance with OSHA’s Hazard Communication standard.

* Examples of high-touch surfaces include: doorknobs, light switches, handles, stair rails, elevator buttons, toilets, faucets, sink counters, paper towel/soap dispensers, and tab-arm chairs, etc.

Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Operations to Mitigate SARS-CoV-2

In response to SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) the University employed a third-party CSU approved Mechanical Engineering firm, P2S Engineering, to individually visually inspect every building air handler and provide recommendations to ensure the highest feasible mitigations that could be enacted consistent with agency guidance for the mitigations of SARS-CoV-2:

Mitigation measures enacted include:

  • Upgraded all campus HVAC system filters and media to minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) 13 filters for the capture of airborne viruses. These are the same filters used in medical facilities.
  • Increased the introduction of outdoor air to the highest degree possible.
  • HVAC systems were adjusted to increase total airflow to occupied spaces to the maximum extent possible.
  • Turned off any demand-controlled ventilation (DCV) controls that reduce air supply based on occupancy or temperature during occupied hours.
  • Flushing of building HVAC systems with maximum outside airflow for two hours before and after the building is occupied.

As of Fall 2020 all of the above mitigation measures have been enacted for Campus buildings to the greatest extent feasible.

Classroom and Laboratory Guidelines

The campus has conducted assessments of laboratories and lecture spaces that may be used to support necessary teaching and research activities which cannot be conducted virtually. Some selected rooms will be provided enhanced synchronous video broadcast technology.

Other Things We Are Doing

  • Increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces by Custodial Services.
  • Increased frequency of cleaning and sanitizing of restrooms by Custodial Services.
  • Signs to educate and promote health and safety have been placed across campus.
  • Implemented an online screening survey for daily clearance.
  • Providing needed sanitization supplies for hands, surfaces, work areas, restrooms.

Parking and Transportation

All CSUN parking lots and parking structures will be open and operational for Fall 2021. As such, standard parking rates will resume.

Employees currently on payroll deduction will automatically renew and will have their previously 50% reduced rate automatically returned to standard rates.

Administrator Guiding Principles

These guiding principles will drive our return back to campus. Please find more information here: Administrator Guiding Principles For Fall 2021 Staffing and Operations (May 19, 2021)

Frequently Asked Questions

Who decides office on-site business hours?

On campus operating hours will be coordinated to provide support to students and employees on campus. Your appropriate administrator will make this determination based on consultation with your division’s Vice President.

Why are employees returning if students are not?

While not all courses will be face-to-face during the Fall 2021 semester, students will be returning to campus for class, student support services, and varying campus activities. It is imperative we are available to support students during this transitional semester.

Working from home has proven effective. Why are we coming back to campus?

We have seen many functions can successfully be accomplished in a virtual environment. We have also seen other services/functions are more effective on-site. Your appropriate administrator will be working with you to determine which functions will continue in a remote capacity and those which are critical to be performed on campus to support the success of our students, our employees, and our campus community.

What if I am not comfortable coming back to work on campus?

Determinations of on-site work will be based on the function you perform. If you are uncomfortable returning we recommend you discuss your concerns with your appropriate administrator to understand the varying safety protocols in place and identify potential mitigating solutions. Please share what more we can do to support you in this transition.

If your concern is related to a medical condition, please contact HR Benefits to engage in the interactive accommodation process. Employees with last name begins with A-K should contact Cari Morgan at cari.morgan@csun.edu and employees with last name begins with L-Z should contact Karyn Cote at karyn.cote@csun.edu.

How do I know what date I am returning to work on campus?

Your appropriate administrators will provide you a minimum of 21 days’ notice of a return to campus work schedule. A 30-day notice is preferred if operational feasible.

I am anxious about coming back to work. What resources do you have for me?

Returning to campus brings change and unknown scenarios for us all to deal with. It is normal to be anxious about this change. Our employee assistance program, LifeMatters is available to assist you with this transition. Life Matters provides short-term counseling services, webinars, as well as a multitude of resources. Please visit https://www.csun.edu/benefits/lifematters-eap.

Additionally, LifeMatters will be hosting virtual support sessions for our campus community over the summer to address anxiety with change and transition to on campus work.

You may also contact our Human Resources Employee Relations Office for additional support and guidance at 818-677-6566 or er@csun.edu.

I am uncertain about my child’s school schedule. How will my schedule be assigned?

Appropriate administrators have been asked to be flexible in scheduling on-site and remote work assignments. Additionally, there are COVID-specific leaves available to accommodate school and childcare closures. Please visit COVID-19 Resources for Faculty, Staff & MPP Employees | California State University, Northridge (csun.edu) for more information.

I take public transportation to work and am uncomfortable doing so. May I continue to work from home?

Determinations of on-site work will be based on the function you perform. Our public transit entities have many parameters in place to assist with prevention of COVID-19.

Please see Metrolink Health and Safety page Here. Metrolink also has a new tool How Full is My Train?

Also please see LA Metro security and safety https://www.metro.net/riding/safety-security/.

How do I know if my colleague is vaccinated?

The CSU has indicated all students and employees will be required to be vaccinated by the Fall 2021 semester provided as least one of the vaccinations is approved by the FDA. The mandate will allow for exemptions for religious and medical reasons.

Vaccination status is an employee’s confidential medical information which managers and colleagues are not privy to.

What if I already was vaccinated by one of the vaccines that has not been approved by the FDA?

The CSU has indicated all students and employees will be required to be vaccinated by the Fall 2021 semester provided as least one of the vaccinations is approved by the FDA. You will not need to get a second, different vaccination than was approved by the FDA. Any of the vaccinations will meet this mandate.

How will vaccination requirements be handled with varying vaccination availability for our international students?

LACDPH supports the acceptance of international vaccines at their full schedule in lieu of a US approved vaccine. If a student can’t be vaccinated in their home country, they will have to follow airline protocols, and then quarantine for 10 days when entering or returning to the US. They can be vaccinated here, but won’t be fully vaccinated for five weeks.

How do I deal with visitors, colleagues, and/or students in my work area who are not complying with the safety protocols?

You may refer to the signage placed around campus and in office spaces/classrooms to remind all visitors/colleagues of the safety protocols. Additionally, tools will be developed to assist you in engaging in discussions with all visitors/customers, including students on safety expectations. You are also encouraged to reach out to your appropriate administrator for support.

I am worried about the air quality in my building. Can I get a HEPA filter?

In response to SARS-CoV-2 the University employed a third-party CSU approved Mechanical Engineering firm, P2S Engineering, to individually visually inspect every building air handler and provide recommendations to ensure the highest feasible mitigations that could be enacted consistent with agency guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Guidance for Building Operations During the COVID-19 Pandemic. Building filters have been converted to MERV 13 filters and operationally adjusted consistent with agency guidance to the greatest extent feasible.

Desktop and/or mini HEPA Air Purification systems are only recommended for high risk, unmasked, less than six feet distancing encounters (e.g. a dentist appointment) or when all other agency guidance is infeasible. To date, Physical Plant Management has enacted all agency guidance to ensure the highest degree of HVAC mitigation measures in response to SARS-CoV-2 and therefore individual HEPA air purification units are not needed for office environments.

Environmental Health and Safety is hosting a number of informational sessions on campus efforts around cleaning, disinfecting and air quality. Please see the Fall 2021 Question and Answer sessions for times you may be interested in attending.

Many of our restrooms have access to the public. How do we know these places are safe and clean?

CDC guidelines indicate contracting COVID-19 from surfaces (fomite transfer) is highly unlikely, however Physical Plant Management is providing additional custodians to disinfect high touch surfaces (including restroom service) throughout the day, however the CDC recommends the use of hand sanitizer whenever touching frequently touched surfaces regardless of the last time a surface was cleaned.

Every restroom on campus has a plaque cards on the back of the entrance door which indicates the last date and time the restroom was cleaned.

Where do I get COVID-19 supplies?

You may obtain COVID related supplies from your Department COVID Coordinator. A list of Department COVID Coordinators is available here https://www.csun.edu/csunasone/health-and-safety

What safety protocols will visitors and/or contractors need to follow? Will visitors and/or contractors need to be vaccinated?

Visitors/contractors will be expected to comply with all safety protocols including wearing face covering indoors, completing the visitor screening survey, etc.

I work in trades and need to understand when it is ok for me to enter a space based on social distancing expectations?

All spaces on campus will have an occupancy sign with occupancies assign by the Department COVID Coordinator

What are the protocols for employees who travel and come back to work on campus?

Employees will need to adhere to the LACDPH and state travel guidelines based on where they traveled. If fully vaccinated employees will not have to quarantine for domestic travel.

Will buildings be locked in the evenings to keep the space safe?

Beginning July 1, 2021, all campus building will resume a pre-COVID building lock/unlock operational condition.

I took my desktop computer home. How do I work both at home and on campus now?

Please consult with your appropriate administrator on equipment and technology needs you have to effectively perform your work.

If I do not work on campus every day, why do I need to pay the full parking rate?

Daily parking permit for $8.00 are also available for purchase. Day permits can be purchased at Information Booth 1 (Lindley and Nordhoff) or Information Booth 2 (Prairie and Darby). You may also purchase a day permit at dispensers in all parking structures and in all student lots.

Where will parking be available with the CSUN vaccination site in use?

The CSUN vaccination site is expected to close by the end of July. As such all parking will be available on campus.

Will the shuttle from the Chatsworth station run to CSUN?

Rides to and from the Metrolink Northridge station will resume Fall 2021. Please contact the Parking Services Office for more details by calling 818-677-2157 or by emailing parking@csun.edu.

The water fountains are turned off. How do I get water?

My breakroom is closed. How do I bring my lunch from home?

COVID Dashboard

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 6/21/21) Number of cases reported due to on-campus exposure Contact identification for on-campus exposure
Students 148 6 Completed
Employees 111 0 Completed
Contract/Affiliate (non-employees) 13 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.

On-Campus Event and Activity Review Process

Any request for on-campus University events and activities, excluding instruction must go through the mandatory Event and Activity Review Process and completion of the Event and Activity Rubric Form, which also details the approval process. In addition, a COVID-19 Health & Safety Questionnaire must be completed. Additionally, CSUN is currently open to reviewing commercial film shoot opportunities. Please reach out to University Licensing for details.

Travel

The Office of the Chancellor recently released modifications to systemwide travel restrictions, which lift systemwide travel restrictions effective June 1, 2021 and provide campus presidents the authority to establish guidelines and processes for approval of travel. All standard CSUN travel policies remain in place for employee and student travel. However, the current essential travel application process for employee travel through “myCSUNglobe” will be eliminated and replaced with a requirement that the Travel Authorization include documentation of approval by the appropriate divisional vice president. Student travel requests will continue to be processed through myCSUNglobe, and must be approved by the Provost. Please visit CSUN University Travel for questions or more information.
