We care about your health and wellbeing. Learn how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community and ensure a safe environment for everyone in the San Bernardino Community College District.
Do I need to conduct a COVID-19 “health check” before I come to campus?
Visitors must self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms prior to coming to campus or District site. For a list of common COVID symptoms, click here.
Please do not come to campus or District site if you are exhibiting one or more COVID symptoms, or if you have been advised to quarantine or isolate following a recent close-contact exposure or positive COVID test result.
If you have any questions, please consult your medical professional or call the San Bernardino County’s COVID-19 hotline at (909) 387-3911. Seek emergency medical care immediately if you exhibit emergency warning signs for COVID-19.
What are the requirements surrounding the wearing of face coverings?
As of August 2nd, 2021, SBCCD has required all individuals to wear face coverings while indoors, regardless of vaccination status. This is consistent with the State’s latest guidance on face-covering use in response to the emerging Omicron variant.
If you are driving or riding in a vehicle with at least one other person while on campus/District business, all occupants are required to wear face coverings.
Under what circumstances am I required to get COVID-tested before visiting the District?
The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) recommends that all individuals (regardless of vaccination status) get tested if they exhibit any COVID-19 symptoms, if they were recently exposed to someone who is infected with COVID, and when traveling.
Unvaccinated individuals should get tested before and after attending “mega events” (see more information on large events below).
For more information, visit the CDPH web page.
Are visitors required to report a positive COVID test outcome to the District?
Visitors should report a positive COVID test outcome to SBCCD’s COVID contact-tracing team if they were on campus or District site 48 hours (or less) prior to onset of symptoms (or collection of positive-test specimen, if asymptomatic). Visitors meeting this criteria should send a notification email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CA Department of Public Health (CDPH) recently announced enhanced COVID-testing guidelines for (unvaccinated) attendees of large events. Do these guidelines apply to campus events?
In the interest of community health and safety, SBCCD will make every attempt to keep campus-event capacities at levels which do not trigger State “mega event” criteria.
If a campus event meets the “mega event” criteria, SBCCD will adopt the latest CDPH testing and vaccination-verification guidance and will communicate those requirements to guests and visitors in advance of the event.
Do I need to provide my vaccination record or COVID test result to the District?
At this time, SBCCD is not collecting vaccination records nor “routine” COVID test results from visitors (i.e., non-students and non-employees). (See question "Are visitors required to report a positive COVID test outcome to the District?" above for reporting positive test results.)
Please check back regularly for any updates.
Changes to District policy will also be communicated to District contractors, vendors, and visiting community members as needed.
