Steps Toward Our Future: Stan State’s New Mask Policy

Stanislaus State recently started requiring face coverings to be worn in indoor areas of instruction and advising only. Masks may not be removed if students are gathered in learning or there is an instructor present who is engaging in teaching.
New signage has been recently placed in entryways to remind students and administration. Nevertheless, the daily screening process and COVID self-certification is still being carried out.
Dr. Rosalee Rush, senior associate vice president of communications and public affairs, said that Stan State is being vigilant in monitoring the campus, as well as the community, when releasing these new updates.
According to Rush, Stan State is following the California SMARTER Plan, which stands for Shots, Masks, Awareness, Readiness, Testing, Education and Rx.
“If we continue to follow the SMARTER Plan, get vaccinated and boosted when eligible, and follow University requirements, we can mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and continue to provide a safe and healthy working and learning environment,” Rush said.
With this new development, students are responding positively as they adjust to the new policy.
“I am happy about this,” said Emily Radza (senior, English) when she received the email update.
As we move in a new direction regarding the update, students have also understood the protocols being maintained to ensure their safety.
Students like Sharlein Envieh (sophomore) will do what it takes in order to be on campus.
“I’d rather be coming in person wearing a mask than being online at home,” she said.
As students attend classes on campus, free masks are available at most campus building entrances. If there is any trouble with the daily screening process, the Warriors Take Care team as well as the OIT desk is there to help. 
Students and administration can find more information about staying safe on campus at Stanislaus State’s COVID-19 website.
