CALIFORNIA - On Tuesday, California State University said it is working to require faculty, staff and students who access any of the CSU campuses to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for the fall semester, CSU said.

The CSU said it is not waiting for any further action from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration due to the current surge of cases.

Every campus will require proof of vaccination by different dates but all vaccinations must be completed by Sept. 30.

“The current surge in COVID cases due to the spread of the highly infectious Delta variant is an alarming new factor that we must consider as we look to maintain the health and well-being of students, employees and visitors to our campuses this fall,” said CSU Chancellor Joseph I. Castro.

The CSUs will offer more virtual classes than they did before the pandemic for those who do not want to return to campus for in-person learning.

The COVID-19 policy will allow students and employees to be exempted for medical and religious reasons.

Chico State said students who will be on campus need at least one vaccine shot before classes begin on Aug. 23. Employees will need at least one shot before Aug. 16. 

There will be a vaccine clinic at Chico State on Aug. 3 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
