Covid-19 Update

CSSSA COVID – 19 PROTOCOLS – 2023 Session


Out-of-State and International Students

CSSSA is currently planning to host students from outside of California during the 2023 session. This is subject to change should COVID-19 hinder CSSSA from safely accommodating out-of-state students. As always, CSSSA will be following the mandates of LA County Department of Public Health, and the State of California.

Proof of Vaccination

In keeping CSSSA’s community safe, our top priority is proof of vaccination. COVID vaccination is mandatory for faculty, students, and staff of CSSSA for the 2022 session. Proof of vaccination (2 Moderna shots, 2 Pfizer shots, or 1 Johnson and Johnson shot).

Mask Wearing

CSSSA will be announcing our mask wearing policy closer to the start of the 2023 session. Our policy will follow all LA County Department of Public Health regulations. Please note, cloth masks, as well gators and bandanas will not be approved for on-campus use should masks be required. Surgical masks, N95 and NK95 masks are the approved mask types. If masks are required, CSSSA will provide approved masks to any student for daily use.

COVID-19 Testing

CSSSA will be announcing our COVID-19 testing policy closer to the start of the 2023 session.  Anyone with a medical or religious exemption from being vaccinated will be required to be tested, as well as anyone exposed to COVID-19 on or off-campus. The regularity of the required testing will be announced closer to the start of the program.

Campus Exposure

Any student who tests positive for COVID-19 will be isolated in residence life rooms which have been reserved for this purpose. Students who test positive will need to be picked up by a parent or guardian the same day of the test result, regardless of their proximity to the campus.

Additional Safety Protocols

The following are additional safety protocols:

  • Complete a daily symptom screening
  • Report to Health Services if you have COVID-19 symptoms
  • Always wear your CSSSA ID
  • Practice mindful distancing and physical contact
  • Wash your hands regularly while on campus

All CSSSA faculty, staff, and students will be expected to follow these protocols.
