Cal Poly COVID-19 Updates

Hello CPARC!

While most of us students have heard the news regarding recent campus updates, we want to make sure that our CPARC community members are informed as well. Throughout the next couple of weeks, students will be returning to campus for the fall quarter, and new campus guidelines have been put in place. I’ve quoted some points from Cal Poly’s COVID‑19 plans below:

All students who live and participate in on-campus activities must provide a negative test result for COVID-19 taken within 72 hours prior to arriving on campus. This includes students living on campus and students living off-campus who visit the university campus for any reason, such as labs, classes, and services.

Students and their supporters must comply with local public health recommendations in all circumstances to slow the spread of COVID-19. Local public health recommendations include:

  • Wear a face covering over your nose and mouth when in public
  • Stay six feet apart from others
  • Stay home when you’re sick
  • Avoid in-person gatherings with people who don’t live with you
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water

In accordance with the state and local mandates, employees and students must wear face coverings in any public areas, shared work areas, and common areas such as hallways, break rooms and conference rooms.

Face coverings are required indoors in public spaces and outside when a physical distance of at least 6 feet cannot be maintained (this includes while operating or riding in vehicles with others who are not in your household)

Note that this is not a comprehensive list. Please visit Cal Poly’s Coronavirus Information website regularly to receive official updates and see detailed information.

We recognize that many of our community members are not students at Cal Poly, but as a club here, we are responsible for keeping each other safe. We will not have in-person events or meetings this fall, but if you must visit the CPARC shack for any reason, we ask that you follow public health recommendations and adhere to guidelines established by the university.

Additionally, please notify the CPARC officer team before you make plans so we can properly coordinate your visit and review safety procedures. You can contact us at

If you have any other concerns, feel free to email me back. Thank you all for taking steps to keep our community safe and healthy!
