Common Questions

Questions will be added and updated as information becomes available. If you can't find the answer to your question, please submit a question to our return to campus team by emailing Repopulation@sonoma.edu.

Where can I find information about the COVID-19 vaccine requirement?

Information regarding the CSU's COVID-19 vaccination requirement can be found here

Is the CSU requiring COVID-19 booster shots?

Yes, the CSU is requiring faculty, staff, and students who are accessing university facilities or programs to receive a vaccine booster shot by February 28, 2022, or six months after an individual received the final dose of the original vaccination, whichever is later. As announced previously, the CSU's COVID-19 vaccination policy allows students and employees to seek exemptions on medical and religious grounds. Represented employees will not be subject to the booster requirement until the CSU concludes its meet-and-confer process with its labor unions.

Can anyone visit campus?

Yes, our campus is always open to the public. 

Are masks required on campus?

Yes, face masks are required inside all non-residential campus buildings, except when in an office that is not shared with others and the door closed. 

In alignment with the revised recommendations on face masks, and due to the increased transmissibility of the Omicron variant of COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and California Department of Public Health are recommending that everyone wear a medical procedure mask or N95 mask, which provides the most protection. Cloth masks are still allowed on campus but we do recommend consideration of high quality cloth masks with additional filtration or medical grade masks.  

Where can I get a mask on campus if I forgot mine?

Medical procedure masks are available at the Student Center, University Library, and in the hallway outside the Seawolf Service Center. We are pleased to be able to provide N95 masks to students. N95 masks are available at the Seawolf Service Center during business hours. Please note that students may receive one mask per week.

N95 masks are available to employees through the Voluntary Respirator Use program administered by the Environmental Health and Safety office. Employees must complete this online form in order to be eligible to receive an N95 supplied by SSU. Once employees have completed the form and agreed to the terms of the program, they are able to pick-up an N95 at the Seawolf Service Center during business hours.

Am I required to complete a daily wellness screening? 

Yes, all SSU employees and students will be required to complete a daily wellness screening when coming to campus. 

Who do I notify if I have been exposed to or have tested positive for COVID-19?

Residential and students with on-campus instruction must report to covid.monitoring@sonoma.edu or (707)-664-COVI (2684). Employees who become aware that they may have been exposed to or have tested positive for COVID-19 and were on campus for any length of time in the prior 14 days, must notify their supervisor. Employees may report directly to Risk Management & Safety Services if they cannot reach their supervisor.

Can student clubs meet in-person?

Yes, student clubs are able to meet in-person and host in-person events. Please contact your club advisor for more information or Risk Management and Safety Services.
