Social Distancing at All Cal State Long Beach Facilities

Published April 16, 2020

Campus Community,

The City of Long Beach issued a Safer at Home Order on Friday, April 10 that became effective at 11:59 p.m. April 15, 2020. The order requires the campus to develop, implement and post instructions about social distancing at every facility where essential operations are being maintained to help protect the well-being of our community.

  • Starting tomorrow, Friday, April 4/17, all employees reporting to campus to work must complete a symptom check before they begin their work day. The symptom check will consist of a questionnaire that will need to be completed on-line. If you answer yes to any of the questions, you will be required to stay/return home, until contacted by the campus to discuss your response. Beach Building Services employees will take the survey upon arrival to campus and will submit their response to their manager. This symptom check is required every day before an employee starts their work shift. Click here for the  questionnaire or find it in Single Sign On under COVID19 Pre-Screen.

It is important to note that any employee who is feeling ill or exhibiting flu like symptoms should not come to work, but should seek medical advice.

Effective immediately, the following additional measures will be required for all essential employees coming onto campus:

  • Managers must ensure all employee desks/work stations are separated by at least six (6) feet.
  • The campus will provide face coverings to all employees unless an employee chooses to wear their own personal face covering. Employees will be required to wear face coverings when interacting with the public or other employees.
  • Employees should wash their hands every 30 minutes or as needed if gloves are provided.
  • Employees must maintain at least six (6) feet from each other except to deliver goods or services.

Any visitor coming to campus will be required to wear a face covering when entering a campus facility. 

In addition to these requirements, our protocol is available online, so everyone is aware of our social distancing measures being taken in addition to the posting at each facility that remains in use.

Campus dining services will require additional measures to prevent unnecessary contact and prevent crowds from gathering. We will also ensure daily cleaning and disinfecting are conducted at all break rooms and bathrooms in the occupied buildings.  

The campus Environmental Health and Safety office maintains a stock of face coverings, gloves, hand sanitizers and disinfectant solution for the campus community. Additional measures to protect public health have already been undertaken on campus and will continue until further notice.
