At the medium and high COVID-19 community level, face coverings are highly recommended for vulnerable people and for those who have symptoms, tested positive, or were exposed to someone with COVID-19. If you are exposed to COVID-19, wear a mask for 10 days.

Based on the advice of California public health agencies, Chapman strongly recommends but does not require that all faculty, staff and students who are eligible get an updated booster with protection against Omicron variants. To be considered up to date with your COVID vaccinations at Chapman, individuals must be current with their primary series plus the updated (bivalent) booster as outlined by the CDC. Submit proof of having all vaccinations and boosters for which you are eligible or file a personal declination.



Take action if you are sick or exposed to COVID-19. The university strongly recommends you get tested if you have symptoms. Report an off-campus COVID-19 test. The university continues to provide on-campus testing at no cost to Chapman community members at the COVID-19 Testing Center. Students and/or faculty in certain programs (e.g. Dodge College) are required to get tested according to program requirements. Report an off-campus COVID-19 test. Also, see additional testing regulations.

Learn more about testing options at the Student Health Center or Chapman’s COVID-19 Testing Center.
