GENERAL HEALTH PRECAUTIONS
● All attendees who are eligible are encouraged to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as they are able, if they have not already. Information is available on the SDSU COVID-19 site on ways to access vaccinations on and off campus. This information should be widely shared.
● All university employees and students are required to maintain campus clearance in order to attend any university sponsored events or activities,regardless of location.
● When indoors, do not open all doors and windows in an effort to increase air flow as a safety precaution. The university’s HVAC and filtration systems are most effective when windows and doors are closed
and the system is able to filter and circulate air.
● All attendees will be required to wear face coverings at all times in accordance with the university’s facial covering policy. No group scheduling an event at SDSU may require removal of facial coverings by any or all attendees.
For attendees who are unvaccinated and required to wear facial coverings while indoors
or when outdoors and unable to maintain six feet to distance, facial coverings may
be removed immediately before eating and must be
replaced immediately after.
In addition, events in Montezuma Hall where attendees will be eating and, therefore, unmasked, will require attendees to be physically distanced and dine 6ft from other attendees.
