OLLI IN-PERSON ATTENDANCE GUIDELINES, Posted September 2, 2021

We are all looking forward to attending classes in person starting September 7, 2021. Like most things we have experienced over these past months, several things will need to be modified in an attempt to keep everyone safe while you are at OLLI.

The following guidelines meet the current campus policies. As a member of the CSUF Community, we are all required to adhere to these safety measures.

POLICIES FOR ATTENDING OLLI CLASSES OR OLLI EVENTS IN PERSON

  • All instructors, members and visitors must be fully vaccinated by September 30, 2021 to attend class in person while on CSUF campus or locations. Fully vaccinated means at least two weeks have passed after the final dose in their vaccine regimen. All vaccination reports must be posted by September 30. There are no vaccination exemptions for OLLI members.
  • Until at least September 30, face coverings/masks are required to be worn at all times when indoors and encouraged outdoors while on campus. Masks must be worn by both members and instructors/presenters. Masks will be available in convenient locations should you forget to bring one.
  • No food or beverages may be consumed in classrooms at any time.
  • Any member or instructor who does not comply with the CSUF COVID-19 Protocols, will be reported and fall under the recommended Actions for University Leaders’ “Enforcement of President’s Directive No. 22” and the “OLLI Ethical Environment Policy.” Violators should be reported to the Administrative Manager Patsy Burns for counselling and/or discipline .
    • Continued failure to comply will result in a warning in writing.
    • An instructor may choose to take a class break, dismiss the class or continue the class virtually if the instructor or class coordinator believes the noncomplying member jeopardizes their safety or in-person class attendees.
    • If the Administrative Manager using University standards considers the member’s noncomplying behavior to be egregious or disruptive in nature, the member is subject to discipline including suspension or membership revocation.

COFFEE AND LUNCH BREAKS: Two-week trial period

The kitchen adjacent to Shapiro AB will be conditionally available for your use. Please note that you will need to use the patio access in the event there is a class held in Shapiro AB. Please do not use Shapiro ABCD for lunch or to gather for coffee.

  • 1)  Many of our classes have decided to meet virtually, which means we have fewer volunteers to make coffee. We will not restrict you from making coffee if you wish to do so, but you will be required to clean up after you have finished. If we find that there is a continued practice of leaving the coffee in the pots at the end of the day, we will close off the coffee makers.

    Coffee is available at the Market Place across from the Gastronome or Starbucks in the Pollak Library.

    Arie Passchier has volunteered to make coffee for Mondays and Fridays. If you would like to volunteer on the other days, please contact Arie.
  • If you wish to bring snacks or lunches, you may use the refrigerator in the kitchen to store them. Any items left in the refrigerator on Friday will be subject to being tossed out.
  • Please use the tables provided in the patio area next to the kitchen or the courtyard where tables, chairs and umbrellas are provided.
  • All members and visitors attending classes must sign in on the Attendance Logs provided at the entrances in each classroom.

OLLI OFFICE - Office hours 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

  • Because of exceptional workload in resuming in-person classes and to prevent office overcrowding, the OLLI office shall operate under revised standards during the fall semester.
  • Office personnel will not be available for member interaction until 8:30 a.m. Please do not knock on the door prior to 8:30 a.m.
  • In order to keep our office personnel and our OLLI members safe, please form a line outside the office door and wait to be called in by one of the office staff. Please limit the number of non-office personnel in the office to two people at one time.

    We ask that you not socialize within the office at this time.
  • If you are there to make copies, please come one-at-a-time to the copier and leave immediately once you have made your copies.
  • f you want to drop off a Copy Request, please leave it on the table near the copier. Please turn in requests at least three days in advance.
