Health Orders and Directives
We will be watching three major public health orders and directives from the state and county, which impact our ability to announce move-in dates and our plans for in-person classes.
Stay at Home Order
The current Santa Clara County Stay at Home order has been extended indefinitely, depending on trends in available intensive-care-unit (ICU) beds. Our students cannot move in while such an order is in effect.
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.
Search Prepared SCU
With safety as our guiding principle, we continue a phased return to campus that strives to protect all members of our community. To the extent possible, staff continue to work remotely. Learn what to expect, what’s required, and what guides our decisions.
We're Here to Help
We know these are uncertain times, here are some ways you can get in touch. Stay safe and well.
