Presidential Order

As part of the University’s ongoing and collective efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 and the associated health and safety implications while continuing to value education, the University requires students to comply with all University mandatory ongoing testing requirements and safety and mitigation measures during the COVID-19 pandemic (winter and spring quarter 2021 unless amended). The growing number of cases in San Luis Obispo County and potential impact on hospital capacity has prompted the University to issue this Presidential Order on COVID-19 ongoing testing and safety protocols. The terms and conditions of this order are subject to change should public health conditions warrant different testing requirements. Changes to this order have been communicated to the student body via a campus-wide email. 

Please visit Cal Poly’s coronavirus website, including current information and procedures about the ongoing COVID-19 testing program and compliance policies.
