Campus Access and Protocols during Safer at Home Orders

In accordance with the guidance of public health officials, students, faculty, staff, and members of the public should not visit Cal State LA. We remain under the Safer at Home Order for control of COVID-19. 

Faculty and staff may request approval to come to campus for one of the following purposes:

  1. On-Campus Instructional Activities Protocol (IAP)
  2. Drive-thru Distribution and Collection of Materials Protocol and Checklist
  3. Infrequent Campus Visit Protocol

PLEASE NOTE: Completion of the RM/EHS COVID-19 Safety Online Course is required and proof of completion must be submitted as part of the application. Retain a copy of your certificate of completion for future submissions.

The specific protocols for each type of visit must be followed prior to access being granted. It is not necessary for those staff members who have been given prior essential employee designation to apply for campus access. 


An instructional-based activity is defined as an activity that supports Cal State LA's academic mission utilizing campus premises for instructional purposes, such as instructional video recording, instructional off-campus project kit assembly*, and other related instructional activities. These are activities that have been identified by the Deans as essential for remote instruction in Fall 2020.

*If the on-campus application involves any project kit making that is intended to be distributed to students for instructional purposes, the on-campus application must also follow the protocol and checklist in the Drive-Thru Distribution and Collection of Materials.

Please direct any questions to your respective college resource manager.

This protocol and checklist is completed in tandem with the On-Campus Instructional Activities Application.  

Review the Drive-thru Distribution and Collection of Materials Protocol and Checklist


Any faculty/staff planning to come to campus for a brief duration (0 - 2 hours) will need to complete this application for approval prior to the campus visit. 

 This protocol is in place to:

  • Maintain an accurate record of who is on campus in the event that LA County asks the campus to begin contract tracing
  • Minimize staff exposure to potential COVID-19 cases to maximum extent possible

If a vendor and/or contractor needs to perform work on campus, the Department/College responsible for managing the vendor/contractor will complete the Infrequent Campus Visit Protocol application on the vendor’s/contractor’s behalf.  All contractors/vendors will need to complete the COVID-training and provide proof of training to the managing Department/College.  If the campus visit by the vendor/contractor is expected to exceed 2 hours, the Department/College should first contact Emily Acevedo, Assistant Director of Academic and Facilities Planning, to discuss possible logistical constraints.
