Indoor Mask Policy
As of March 12, 2022 and in accordance with Gov. Jay Inslee's updated mask and face coverings guidance, masks at Community Colleges of Spokane are no longer required.
The updated guidance affects all CCS campuses and locations. Those who wish to continue wearing masks are encouraged to do so and masks will continue to be provided on campuses.
Masks are still required at all Head Start/Early Head Start locations. Children aged two and up are encouraged to wear masks.
Note: While masks are no longer required universally in indoor or outdoor settings, there may be situations when the use of well-fitting masks may be temporarily recommended or required for individuals by DOH and/or local public health or the IHE (e.g., days 6-10 if returning from isolation after day 5, during an outbreak, when community levels are high, etc. Everyone, regardless of vaccination status, should consider wearing a well-fitting mask indoors when community levels are high.
Student Employees Must be Fully Vaccinated as a Condition of Employment
Student employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. As with state employees and private healthcare workers, there will be no test out option. The governor’s requirement provides exceptions that employees may apply for, including “legitimate medical reasons and sincerely held religious beliefs.”
