 New FAQs 

Questions we’re receiving from the CSU community:

Q1. My roommate doesn’t have any symptoms, but was a close contact of someone with Coronavirus and was asked to self-quarantine. Should I also self-quarantine?
The CDC does not recommend that contacts of contacts self-quarantine at this time. Your roommate should be self-monitoring for respiratory symptoms and to check for fever at least twice daily, seeking medical advice and testing if they develop symptoms and a fever. If your roommate doesn’t develop symptoms or a fever, then there is no need for you to do anything other than what has already been recommended: wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face, practice respiratory etiquette, and stay away from sick people.

Q2. If faculty and staff still need something from their office, will they still have access?
Faculty and staff will have card access through regular business hours. They should coordinate that with their department chair or supervisor. If they need assistance, they should call campus security at 216-687-2020.

Q3. Can faculty and staff work from their office?
No. Faculty and staff should quickly retrieve what they need and leave.

Q4. With remote learning now extended for the rest of the semester, will the residence halls close?
The residence halls will close and students will be required to move out their belongings. A controlled process for limiting the number of students in the buildings will ensure we continue to keep our campus community safe. Details of this process will be communicated directly to residential students by midnight tonight and posted at the Residence Life website.

Q5. Now that Spring Commencement and the Law School commencement have been postponed, will there be any delay in receiving my degree?
No. Graduates will still have their degrees conferred on May 9 and May 16, respectively. Paper diplomas will be mailed to graduates shortly thereafter. Read more here.
