COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 Mandatory Testing Program - Update

Aug. 27, 2021



This communication is updated as of August 27, 2021

As a reminder, all Fresno State employees have been asked to voluntarily complete the COVID-19 Self-Certification form available through your My Fresno State portal, under Employee Self Service. We strongly encourage everyone to complete this as soon as possible, but not later than September 30 in accordance with the CSU Interim COVID-19 Vaccination Policy.


The mandatory employee testing program applies to all employees including Managers, Staff, and Faculty in accordance with CSU systemwide Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs). 

Employees who are fully vaccinated and voluntarily provide proof of vaccination will not be required to do weekly testing.  All applicable  employees who have not completed their Self-Certification form by August 29  (including proof of vaccination) in My Fresno State portal will receive an email the week of August 30 about the mandatory weekly employee testing program. Employees can upload their proof of vaccination at any time in order to opt-out of the mandatory testing program.

Regardless of vaccination status, no employee is required under this employee testing program to provide proof of vaccination. However, employees who do not provide proof of vaccination will be considered unvaccinated and will be required to comply with the mandatory weekly testing.
Employees will be allowed to do their COVID-19 test during work hours and paid accordingly. These weekly tests are being provided by a third-party provider at no cost to employees. For location and times, please visit the COVID-19 Testing section of the University COVID-19 website.


For more information about Fresno State’s COVID-19 testing program, please see the and the COVID-19 FAQs and  Fall 2021/COVID-19 Testing page.

As a reminder, Fresno State will continue to require that face coverings be worn indoors and that the Daily Health Screening Questionnaire be completed in advance of coming to campus.

As always, the health and safety of our campus community continues to be our highest priority.
