COVID-19 Safety Protocols for the 2023–2024 Academic Year

Fuller’s Health & Safety Committee has been closely monitoring the current situation regarding COVID-19, as well as federal, state, and local public health guidelines and health orders. As we emerge from California’s COVID-19 State of emergency, Fuller is now shifting its focus from the immediate pandemic response to maintaining a safe and thriving community. Your safety remains paramount, and we will continue to maintain the highest standards possible to ensure the well-being of our community members.


What procedures are in place to help protect us against the COVID virus?

The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are extremely important. The following measures are being taken to minimize the risk of infection:

  • You are no longer required to submit a Symptom Check form for each campus visit, but we ask that you protect others by remaining at home if you have symptoms of COVID-19, flu, or cold.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19, please notify [email protected]
  • Masks are strongly encouraged while indoors (or as required by a public health order)
  • Regular cleaning protocols have been implemented and will be maintained
  • Air filters are upgraded to the highest efficiency possible and other modifications have been made to increase the quantity of outside air and ventilation in each building
