Fresno State continues mask requirements, offers COVID-19 test kits

Fresno State will continue to require masks indoors at all times after Feb. 16 and will offer limited supplies of at-home COVID-19 tests to the campus community.

“This requirement is in alignment with California Department of Public Health recommendations for educational and high-risk settings,” said Vice President for Administration and Chief Financial Officer Debbie Adishian-Astone in an email.

California will lift the temporary indoor mask mandates on Feb. 16, but Fresno State announced that it will still require surgical-grade masks on campus in an email sent to students. 

Additionally, the email noted that some COVID-19 Rapid Antigen tests will be available.

“These tests are intended to be used at home when experiencing symptoms, and are an important tool for early detection to help keep our campus community safe,” Adishian-Astone said.

The home test kits will be available beginning Feb. 15 at the following locations:

  • COVID-19 Testing Center at the Student Recreation Center (REC)
  • Student Health and Counseling Center
  • Atrium at Student Housing
  • University Student Union (USU)

The kits are limited to one per person and will include two tests while supplies are available.

Weekly PCR tests will continue to be free to all current students, faculty and staff.
