What can you do to help prevent the spread of COVID-19?


Students, faculty, staff and guests are asked to continue to take reasonable precautions and be thoughtful about protecting each other from infection—particularly those who are especially vulnerable to COVID-19. CCS does not require face coverings though their use is encouraged in groups and public areas. Students and employees are also encouraged to wash their hands frequently and get vaccinated and boosted (including the flu vaccine).
 

Vaccinations no longer required for most CCS employees


Effective November 1, 2022, Community Colleges of Spokane will no longer require COVID-19 vaccinations for most employees in accordance with Governor Jay Inslee’s recission of all remaining COVID-19 emergency proclamations and state of emergency on October 31, 2022.

CCS employees working in Head Start and at the Department of Corrections site are still required to verify vaccination status through ctcLink and through the CCS Human Resources Office. Masking will be required at Department of Corrections sites under certain circumstances.

Employee Travel


Effective November 1, 2022, there are no COVID vaccination requirements or restrictions placed on CCS employees traveling on official college or district business. Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 should notify their supervisor and the Human Resources Office and should not travel on official college or district business.

Employees should continue to obtain the appropriate prior approvals for their travel and follow established CCS travel procedures.

Vaccinations not required for SCC and SFCC students

Beginning Fall Quarter 2022, SCC and SFCC students can attend in-person classes and seek on-campus support services regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status, except where otherwise directed (some healthcare programs). Students are encouraged, but not required to have COVID-19 vaccinations.

This decision was made by the presidents and chancellor in response to the low hospitalization rates with the current variants, increased community immunity and the wider availability of therapeutic medications.
