The California Department of Public Health and Cal/OSHA has issued guidelines and considerations intended to help institutions of higher education and their communities plan and prepare to resume in-person instruction.

Reminder: All Californians are required to wear face coverings in public settings. A statewide order regarding face masks was issued in June, following guidance from California’s Department of Public Health based on the ability of asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic people to spread the disease.
