Dear Cuesta Community,

The Shelter at Home Order issued by Governor Newsom last evening was an abrupt pivot for all Californians. The language of the California Order differs from the language of the San Luis Obispo County Order, and that of other counties. At this time, we have been advised by Chancellor Oakley and via legal opinion that we are to remain open with only essential personnel providing support services for students.

As we have experienced over the last two weeks, this may change. I will provide updates as they are available and we continue to update the COVID-19 webpage regularly.

Thank you for your patience, positive response, and creativity as we walk through this together. Our students are fortunate to have you working on their behalf!

Dr. Jill Stearns, Cuesta College Superintendent / President
