Policies, Guidance and Directives

The policies, guidance, and directives follow changes to university processes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The university’s discretion will overrule any conflicting policies. This guidance is subject to change as the ever-evolving Covid situation requires us to be diligent in our policymaking so that we can best meet the needs of our campus community. Compliance with CSU Covid policies is required of all CSU faculty, staff, students, contractors, and visitors. Failure to comply will result in disciplinary action and/or removal from campus. The campus community may report violations of public health directives.

Central State University is committed to keeping the campus community informed and healthy. If you have questions that are not answered in the Covid-19 Resource Center, please email

Advanced Campus Cleaning Measures

• Hand sanitizer stations in all buildings.
• Enhanced cleaning of all buildings.
• Strategically placed plexiglass and other barriers to minimize virus transmission.
• Upgraded HVAC systems in all buildings.
• Enhanced UV Lighting with Filter in University Health Center exam rooms: reduces antimicrobial growth on surfaces and improves air quality


Travel increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19. The CDC recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated. Since most people are not yet vaccinated, and infections continue to spread, the risk of transmission continues to remain high, and that risk is increased by the continued prevalence of new strains of the virus. For the foreseeable future, the global pandemic will continue to affect the safety and utility of recreational travel.

Central State encourages all members of the campus community to postpone and avoid all non-essential travel. For your personal safety and the safety of others, anyone who chooses to travel should ensure they are in good health and follow important safety protocols recommended by the CDC. A time of quarantine may be required after traveling. It is important for you to plan for this additional time away from work as well.

Central State will monitor Center for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines along with local, state, and federal public health orders and guidelines as the University updates policies and procedures to ensure the safest possible on-campus environment.
