Safer Return at Cal Poly Pomona

Classroom and Workspace Cleaning

Safety Protocols and Facilities

We are guided by our commitment to protect the health and well-being of our campus community. The campus is aware of the changing nature of the situation and is following the recommendations from public health agencies, including the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

We are implementing numerous safety protocols. Cleaning and disinfecting by Custodial Services is high priority returning for the fall semester. Halting the spread of COVID-19 and its variants is a shared responsibility, and by working together we can keep everyone safe and achieve our goals.
