Classroom capacities are being decreased to allow for greater distance between students with a target allowance of 25 sf/student. This has necessitated the use of additional rooms across campus to serve as classrooms, as well as the construction of additional classrooms at St. Junipero Serra Hall. In addition, online sections of courses have been added and the limit on online courses for returning students has been increased to three per semester.
Students will be required to wear face coverings in classrooms and labs. Professors are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings while teaching or maintain six-foot social distancing from students combined with other provisions as much as possible (e.g., use a plexiglass barrier).
Academic departments will provide additional instructions and personal protective equipment as appropriate for academic clinicals and other external field experiences.
Faculty will anticipate that students may miss classes due to quarantine/isolation, and they will make provisions in their syllabi; e.g., recording class lectures.
