Dear Beach Faculty and Staff:
Recently, you may have heard about evolving guidance relating to face coverings and other health protocols coming from public-health officials and from CalOSHA, the state agency that establishes workplace safety and health regulations.
We are currently working with the Chancellor's Office about how we and other campuses may implement revised safety policies. We will communicate applicable changes for the Beach community as soon as this process concludes, which includes conferring with our labor unions.
For now, our campus policy continues to require all employees to use a face covering while on campus. We also encourage all members of the Beach community to receive a vaccination if they have not already done so. On-campus vaccinations will resume next month, but in the meantime there are many free-of-cost options for off-campus providers.
We remain committed to sharing information with you as it becomes available and we hope to provide an update soon.
Thank you for your ongoing understanding and patience as we chart this course together.
Vice President for Administration and Finance
