COVID-19 Vaccination Policy Update | CFA & CSUEU
September 8, 2021

Dear Campus Colleagues:

I am happy to share with you that the CSU has completed the meet and confer process with CFA (Unit 3) and CSUEU (Units 2, 5, 7, 9) for the COVID-19 Vaccination Interim Policy.

The Interim Policy requires all CFA and CSUEU employees to self-certify their vaccination status by certifying they are fully vaccinated, need a medical exemption, need a religious exemption, or are not physically coming to campus. Employees may submit their certification in the myNorthridge Portal, under the Policies and Procedures pagelet of the Faculty or Staff tab, by selecting the EE Vaccine Self-Certification link and completing the form accordingly.

CSUEU employees certifying they are fully vaccinated will need to show proof of vaccination by uploading their vaccination card to the portal. For CFA and CSUEU employees requesting an exemption, a medical exemption requires a medical provider’s verification that a COVID-19 vaccine is medically inadvisable and a religious exemption requires an employee to certify their religious belief excludes them from receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Employees who request an exemption will be forwarded the applicable verification forms.

While employees are encouraged to self-certify as soon as possible, CFA and CSUEU employees will have up to eight (8) weeks to obtain vaccination in order to complete the certification process. CFA and CSUEU employees are required to comply with the Interim Policy as a condition of employment no later than close of business October 27, 2021.

Please visit Employee COVID-19 Vaccine Information for vaccination information, including how to obtain a copy of your vaccination record or how to schedule a vaccination appointment.

Additionally, unvaccinated employees, until fully vaccinated, or those who request a medical or religious exemption are subject to weekly COVID-19 testing. Please visit COVID-19 Employee Testing for testing information.

Finally, CSUEU employees may refer to the corresponding fully executed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

For questions please contact 818-677-6566 or

Thank you.
