SF State's Plans and Responses to COVID-19
The Gator community — a mosaic of our diverse students, faculty and staff — is the heart of SF State. Guided by our proven community's commitment to safety and health, in addition to the positive outlook backed by public health guidelines, our phased return to campus has thus far been successful and continues to operate well! As we continue to live, learn and work through this recovery process, we ask for your flexibility and thank you in advance for your patience.
SF State's Guiding Principles
This guidance is to provide an overall structure to maintain a healthy campus and to gradually increase the number of SF State students, faculty and staff who are on campus. The plan will be based on the following guiding principles to support SF State’s core academic mission:
Foundational to a vibrant and welcoming campus is the presence of our students, faculty, staff and administrators. Health and safety measures such as face covering and vaccination are proven to help prevent COVID-19 infection. Our plans allow for the optimum number of staff members who can be on campus while maintaining health and safety requirements.
Surveys revealed that the safer we make the campus for our students, faculty and staff, the more optimistic they are about returning.
The campus will provide a robust health and safety program and empower students, faculty, staff and administrators with measures they should take for their own and the community’s health and safety.
As conditions improve, we expect and welcome increased levels of student, faculty and staff activities. A responsible level of oversight will be necessary to ensure health and safety protocols are planned and followed — including those for off-campus activities.
