For the week of June 14, 2021: 

Continue Campus Protocols on Face Coverings and Physical Distancing

Although Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) have eased COVID-19 restrictions on physical distancing and face coverings, the university is subject to Cal OSHA COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards, which apply to all workplaces in California. With few exceptions, the standards still require those who are vaccinated to wear a face covering and maintain physical distance from others.

Cal OSHA has revised the standards to be more in line with CDPH guidance and will present them to the standard review board for adoption later this week. Governor Newson may issue an executive order for the revised standards to be effective immediately if the review board adopts them. 

Until the revised standards are adopted and are in effect, everyone should continue to wear a face covering and maintain physical distance while on campus. We will send out an update when there is a change to the standards.

For the week of June 7, 2021:

Alameda County moves to the Yellow Tier on June 9, allowing certain activites and businesses to resume or expand their operations. The university will continue to follow state and county guidance for repopulating campus facilities, such as the RAW Center. Additional information about reopenings will be shared as they are approved.

For the week of May 31, 2021:

Cal State East Bay is hosting a limited number of optional, in-person orientation welcome sessions this summer from June 23-24 for transfer students and July 15-16 for freshmen. These orientation welcome sessions will be limited to 50 students per session, last about three hours each and take place outdoors. Guest speakers, campus tours, and “real talk” sessions with orientation team leaders and transfer ambassadors will be the hallmark of these events. Visit the orientation website or contact orientation@csueastbay.edu for more information.

For the week of May 24, 2021:

While we are aware of the new CDC guidance on face coverings and physical distancing for fully vaccinated individuals, California Department of Public Health’s May 3, 2021 requirements on face coverings have not changed but are expected to align with CDC guidance on June 15, 2021. For the campus, everyone should comply with the following CDPH face covering and physical distancing requirements:
  •  Face coverings and physical distancing are still required indoors, on shuttle buses and other forms of shared transportation regardless of vaccination status. 
  • For fully vaccinated individuals, face coverings are not required outdoors except when attending crowded events. Fully vaccinated individuals may choose to wear face coverings.
Public health officials recommend vaccination as the critical tool to protect your health and help stop the pandemic. While we are encouraged about the high number of faculty, staff and students who are already vaccinated, the university is partnering with La Familia in Hayward for vaccinations. La Familia is booking appointments at its vaccination site at Skywest Golf Course. Other vaccination sites in the region can be located through the California Department of Public Health’s MyTurn site.


The Cashier's Office is open Monday-Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
