Maintaining the health and safety of all employees is CSUN’s top priority. The following procedures are guided by Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Los Angeles County Public Health (LACDPH) recommendations.
CSUN is providing the following information to help identify employee actions that can reduce the risk of potential transmission of COVID-19. The purpose is to:
- Protect yourself and others
- Minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus from an infected person to others
- Reduce the exchange of respiratory aerosols/droplets through contact with others
Our efforts are aligned with recommendations from the California Department of Public Health, the California State University, the CDC and LACDPH to reduce or mitigate the risks of becoming infected with COVID-19, a virus which can cause significant morbidity and mortality in a percentage of infected individuals, including those at high risk. Additional information about COVID, preventive advice, and risk factors is provided at the CSUN COVID-19 page at /csunasone
We will continue to implement, update, and revise our protocols and procedures as guided by public health officials and state and local leaders informed by evidence-based research and data, but, as this is a new virus, and scientific knowledge and understanding is evolving, we must inform our employees that we do not have a means yet to reduce risk of COVID infection and transmission on campus to zero. We will continue to implement measures to lower COVID infection risk as much as possible at this time.
PROTOCOLS: The following protocols are expected of all CSUN employees working on campus. Campus offices should be evaluated to ensure that there is at least a 6-foot separation among employees at their desks or workstations.
