Update on Indoor Masking
Today, the County of Santa Clara Public Health Department announced that all masking metrics have been met and therefore indoor masking will no longer be required beginning March 2. However, the Public Health Department and the California Department of Public Health strongly recommend that the public continue to wear masks in all indoor public spaces. We support that recommendation.
While we have followed County guidance without modification thus far, we recognize that some students and employees may have returned to campus with the expectation that masking would be required throughout the quarter. Therefore, we will continue requiring indoor masking in classrooms and offices that interact with the public until March 25. Absent other considerations, we plan on strongly recommending indoor masking as of April 4, the beginning of spring quarter. We will revisit AP 3507 COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement to update the provisions on masking as may be appropriate at that time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these volatile times,
