COVID-19 Information

SJECCD COVID-19 and Vaccination Information

While vaccines are no longer required for students or employees, data from public health agencies indicate that vaccinated individuals are less likely to experience severe illness or death from COVID-19 than their unvaccinated peers. Vaccination—including the latest booster shot—is encouraged for employees and students.

In alignment with Santa Clara County Department of Public Health guidelines, masks are not required to be worn in most locations on SJECCD property, including inside classrooms and other shared spaces. This applies to all individuals on SJECCD property regardless of vaccination status.

While this change puts us in alignment with the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health guidelines for indoor masking in educational settings, the Department still strongly recommends individuals continue to wear a mask indoors and individuals may still wear masks if they choose to do so. We will also continue to make masks available for employees, students, and visitors at kiosks near building entrances throughout our campuses.

Employee Check-In Process

In addition to the daily self-check, all employees must check in daily using the designated check-in process for their location. Processes differ slightly by location, but generally employees shall scan the QR code on building entrances upon arrival and when moving between facilities on campus.
