COVID-19 Guidelines

As of April 3, Samuel Merritt University has revised its COVID-19 Guidelines to be in alignment with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Preventions (CDC).    

SMU has been highly successful in keeping our community safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. The University’s COVID-19 Committees would like to thank all of you for following the COVID-19 guidelines over the past 3-years. We will continue to monitor the CDPH and Cal/OSHA recommendations and will modify our COVID-19 Guidelines as required.
