Information and guidance to ensure the safety of our community.

Alert icon Restricted Access to Campus: Santa Clara County continues to have widespread risk of COVID-19. Restrictions on activities and travel remain in effect.

Santa Clara County Health Orders

Following the post-holiday surge in COVID-19 cases, we continue to monitor major public health orders and directives from the state and county, which impact our ability to re-open campus.

Blueprint for a Safer Economy

Santa Clara County continues to be in the most-restrictive “purple tier” in California’s system for COVID-19 openings, which limits the types of in-person instruction that can occur. Students are allowed to move into reduced-capacity on-campus housing (as we have planned) under purple tier, following safety and social-distancing protocols.

Mandatory Directive on Travel

Currently in Santa Clara County, anyone coming into the county from more than 150 miles away must self-quarantine for 10 days. If this were still in effect in the winter quarter, students traveling from more than 150 miles away would be effectively “locked down” for 10 days.
