COVID-19 Related Guidelines: 
Face Covering 
The State of California is now mandating the use of face masks. As we continue to practice social distancing, please remember to wear a mask when in public, including when you are walking through the Housing community. Do not share masks with other students and continue to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, use hand sanitizer, keep six feet between you and others, avoid touching your face and mouth and stay home as much as possible. 
Safe Practices 
The State of California is experiencing a rise in COVID-19 cases. We know this is a difficult time and we are weary of social distancing and isolation. With this rise in cases, it is important that we all continue to practice the protocols that have been in place since March. Please do not frequent places where social gatherings are taking place, including restaurants, beaches and parks. Please refrain from nonessential travel as other areas are experiencing more cases as well. Please stay safe but reach out to Housing staff if you have any concerns. If you are not feeling well, please contact the Student Health Center (323-343-3300) or your medical practitioner to discuss your symptoms. 
Guest Policy 
To promote social distancing as a precaution to reduce the spread of coronavirus, Housing and Residence Life has revised the guest policy to comply with guidance from the California Department of Public Health and the University. Guests are not allowed in the housing community and inside individual apartments. Housing and Residence Life has a priority to support the well-being of our residential students and staff, therefore we have suspended day and overnight visitation privileges until further notice. During this time, we ask that you do not entertain guests in your apartments and in the residential community including other Cal State LA students.
