Revised Cal/OSHA Office Protocols


Today, Cal/OSHA announced its revised office protocol to align with California’s recent Health Officer Order. We appreciate that it may take some time to feel comfortable with these new guidelines. The university will update the LMU community as the guidance changes and restrictions further ease on campus.

The following changes to LMU office spaces will go into effect on Monday, June 21:

  • Masks and physical distancing are no longer required indoors or outdoors. Those who prefer to wear masks may continue to do so.
  • For those who are not registered in Vax LMU as fully vaccinated:
    • Masks are required indoors at all times, unless alone in a private office with the door closed, or while eating or drinking.
    • Masks are required outdoors when in the company of others.
    • Individuals must get tested twice per week at the LMU COVID Testing Center.
    • N95 masks will be available to anyone who wishes to wear one. Please submit requests to
  • All LMU community members, regardless of vaccination status, must:
    • Continue to complete the Lion Health Check before accessing campus (or for resident students, before leaving their on-campus residence).
    • Obtain campus access approval from their dean or vice president if not already approved as part of their unit’s completed COVID Safe Return Initiative.
  • LMU will continue to provide cloth masks at the LMU Drive entrance to campus.
  • Additional information will be communicated to COVID Safety Liaisons next week.
As California continues to ease pandemic restrictions, the university expects further changes to protocol by Cal/OSHA and the California and L.A. Departments of Public Health. LMU will continue to update the community as further information becomes available.
