  • Anyone is welcome to wear masks indoors and outdoors based on comfort level.

Training – for student employees only


  • Testing is not required to return to campus from a break.
  • Weekly testing is not currently required, nor determined by vaccination status.
  • In-person testing is available at no cost on the Orange campus at the COVID-19 Testing Center, 145 Sycamore Avenue, just west of the Student Health Center. Results from this testing site will be automatically entered into the university’s test submission system. The COVID-19 Testing Center building’s access contains two steps with no ramp. If you need assistance, please press the doorbell button on the post outside the door and a staff member will assist you. To make alternative arrangements, please call 714-997-6851 to schedule an appointment. For your appointment, go to the Health Center through the front door at 402 N. Glassell Street.
  • At the Rinker campus, at-home test kits are available at no cost in room 110 of building 9401 during business hours.
  • Report an off-campus COVID-19 test.
  • Anyone experiencing symptoms has access to Chapman COVID-19 testing in the Student Health Center, or the Chapman COVID-19 Testing Center.
  • All students are required to report a positive COVID-19 test to the Student Health Center and cooperate fully with Chapman contact tracking and tracing efforts.
  • If individuals do test positive for COVID-19, either on-site or with an off-site or self-test, there continues to be a mandated isolation period of five days. Wear a high-quality mask if you must be around others at home and in public. During the required isolation, faculty must provide students with alternative means to stay current with their courses.
  • Employees and student employees may use California’s Supplemental Paid Sick Leave first (up to) 40-hour bank if they are (or have been) unable to work or telework for any of the following reasons between Jan. 1, 2022, and Dec. 31, 2022.

Let’s Stay Healthy Together

Learn about the safety guidelines, testing procedures and vaccine resources for both Chapman University and Orange County. Guidelines for keeping healthy are based upon recommendations from the CDC and local health authorities. By working together and following these guidelines, we can help protect the health of everyone on campus and in our community.

At the low and medium 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 will not require the new booster for faculty, staff and students who are eligible. To be considered fully vaccinated, individuals must be current with their primary series as outlined by the CDC. You may submit proof of having all vaccinations and boosters for which you are eligible or file a personal declination.



All faculty, staff and students are required to get tested if they have symptoms. Report an off-campus COVID-19 test. Anyone in close contact with a person who has Covid must get tested. Students and/or faculty in certain programs (e.g. Dodge College) are required to get tested according to program requirements. 

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