The MSJC Board of Trustees on August 19, 2021, voted to approve a COVID-19 vaccine and testing program at MSJC for students, faculty, and staff in response to increasing cases of COVID-19 and its variants in our region. This action was approved at the board meeting on September 9, 2021, the board approved updated policies 5210-Communicable Disease (Student Services) and 7330-Communicable Disease (Human Resources).
These policies sunset on Wednesday, May 25, 2022. The District will no longer require students, faculty, and staff to vaccinate, wear a mask or complete weekly testing of those students, faculty, and staff who were granted exemption.
However, the District will continue to follow Cal OSHA and California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidelines for faculty and staff relating to positive cases and close contact exposure. Please refer to the Decision Tree and Return to Campus guidelines on the district website.
Faculty and staff will continue with our current protocols relating to contact tracing and the Cleared4 Daily Check-in system. We want to remind you that if you are experiencing symptoms or are not feeling well, please stay home. Contact your supervisor and Human Resources for further steps.
