Latest Updates

Dear Campus Community,

As we finish midterm exams and head into spring break, we wanted to share a few updates and provide information about returning to campus.

Chancellor’s office updates 

Alexis Litzky joined the Chancellor’s Office as the Interim Chief of Staff. In this position, Alexis will be supporting operations and coordinating communication across the district.  Alexis will play the point of contact for 1) Return to campus planning, 2) media and governmental relations requests (until a new Director of Media is hired), and 3) supporting internal communications.   

Return to Campus 

Starting Monday, April 4, 2022, our administrators and classified managers will return to campus full-time.

Vaccine and COVID reporting policy 

We will continue to require vaccination (or qualified exempting and testing) for anyone coming to a physical location. Symptom self-checking and completing contact tracing forms (the QR code forms at every building entrance) ensures that we can adequately notify individuals about exposure. Visitors (one-time or recurring) will be expected to follow our posted visitor policy and follow all posted safety measures. 

If you, an employee you supervise, or a student has tested positive for COVID-19, please fill out the COVID-19 Positive Case Report immediately to notify the CCSF COVID Response team. Data about case reports and vaccination status are available on our COVID-19 Safety Dashboard

Additionally, as we continue to engage with students and community members throughout the coming months, please encourage all campus community members to submit their proof of vaccination through the MyRam app.  

Building access

Starting April 4, 2022 - the Monday after Spring Break – our campus and center facilities will be opened. CCSF buildings will be accessible to faculty and students attending class, the administrators and classified managers returning to work, and any additional employee interested in returning to campus. The buildings will be open according to the posted building schedule of hours.  If you would like to return to your workspace on campus, please reference the building hours and follow all relevant safety measures. 

Wear a mask

CCSF will continue a mandatory mask policy whenever indoors with others.

Facilities

The facilities team has installed CDC-recommended air filters in our building.  Building signage will include information about safety measures that have been implemented. If you have any specific questions or concerns about the facilities' condition upon returning to your workspace, please email facilities at facilities@ccsf.edu.  

Future reopening discussions

Throughout the second part of the spring semester and beyond, Participatory Governance Council (PGC) will be asked to dedicate time for campus-wide reopening discussions.  These discussions will focus on the review, updating, and implementation of the three-stage CCSF reopening plan.   

After we return from spring break, the following items will be upcoming conversation points discussed in our campus governance groups: 

  • Open shared meeting spaces for the remainder of spring 2022 
  • Identify what services/departments will reopen in person for summer/fall 2022 
  • Implementation and enforcement of safety policies 

The Return to Campus (R2C) group will continue to meet and engage in discussions specific to individual needs and/or unique circumstances specific to campus reopening. 

Have a safe and restful spring break.

Dear Campus Community,   

As the fifth week of classes comes to an end, we hope that this message finds you all well. Thank you to the thousands of employees and students who have already submitted your vaccine records. We continue to be deeply engaged in planning for re-opening the College that prioritizes a safe return to each of our physical spaces.  With that in mind, here are the current CCSF Covid Safety requirements in place for the remainder of the Spring 2022 semester:   

  • Social distancing and mask-wearing inside ALL CCSF facilities and locations, regardless of one’s vaccination status, are required in accordance with guidance from the City of San Francisco.   
  • All employees must submit proof of their vaccine documentation or request an exemption (Instructions here). 
  • Students taking in-person classes or accessing in-person student services must submit proof of their vaccine documentation or request an exemption (Instructions here).  

Again, while the California Department of Public Health has updated guidance for using facemasks indoors, City College will continue to require employees and students to wear facemasks indoors. 

Please visit the CCSF COVID-19 Updates page for the most up-to-date information about the CCSF COVID Safety Campaign and return to campus information.

We hope everyone has a successful and safe Spring 2022 semester! 

In an effort to keep our community informed on the implementation of the college’s COVID Safety Campaign, and as we plan a return to campus, the dashboard below shows data on vaccination status confirmed and exemptions for both employees and students currently taking in-person classes. The dashboard is updated every Monday afternoon.

COVID Safety Campaign Update and Reminder

Thank you to all who have uploaded proof of vaccination or submitted an exemption request. To date 1,117 employees and 981 students have submitted their information.

Hello employees!

One of the keys to CCSF’s successful and safe campus re-opening is to have all employees submit proof of vaccination or request an exemption and provide a negative COVID test result, including those that are working mostly remotely this semester.  In order for Human Resources to fully support a safe return for all employees and students, track our progress and plan for more access to college buildings for Spring 2022, please submit your vaccination status or request for an exemption by November 30, 2021, at www.ccsf.edu/covid-19-updates. If you have any questions, please contact Senior Director of Compliance and Risk Management, Mildred (Milly) Otis at motis@ccsf.edu.
 
Human Resources will support and work with employees and their respective unions (if applicable) who have not submitted their information by November 30 to ensure full implementation by the end of Fall 2021 semester.

Hello students!

If you're considering enrolling in an in-person course for the Spring semester (browse the Spring '22 class schedule online), it's important to know that City College has implemented a Covid Safety Campaign for in-person classes and services. Students must submit proof of vaccination or exemption before registering for an in-person class.  
  
To access in-person classes or resources, please submit proof of vaccination, or provide an exemption from this requirement through the CCSF Covid Safety Campaign website. Please allow up to 10 business days for your vaccination or exemption to be processed - you are encouraged to upload your information early.  
  
No proof is needed if you are taking online or remote classes.  
  
You can read more about the CCSF Covid Safety Campaign at www.ccsf.edu/covid-19-updates.  
  
We look forward to seeing you in the Spring semester starting January 18th!


Help us reach our goal to be a fully vaccinated college (which includes approved exemptions) for Spring 2022!

November 5, 2021

Dear College Community,

Thank you to all employees who have submitted either proof of vaccination or a request for an exemption.  We will NOT be requiring proof of vaccination or a negative test result starting November 8th as we had originally planned. We are still in the process of identifying and training Campus Ambassadors who will be monitoring open entrances to check for verifications, as well as waiting for clearance from Google to use the ReadyEducation app for this purpose.  We will keep everyone updated.  In the interim:

  • The current process to access College facilities will remain in effect until further notice, and
  • If you haven't uploaded your information, please do so at https://www.ccsf.edu/covid-vax-status.

For all the latest Covid Safety Campaign information, visit the COVID-19 Updates page.  We appreciated everyone's flexibility as we navigate this uncharted territory.

Dianna Gonzales, J.D.
Interim Chancellor

September 30, 2021

Dear College Community,
Tomorrow, Friday, October 1st marks the launch of our phased-in COVID Safety Campaign. The key word here is “phased-in.”

Phase One: Collection of information

  • We begin implementing a system for the collection of information on vaccination status and requests for exemptions.
  • The first group required to upload their vaccination information or request for exemption will be:
    1. students taking in-person classes, and
    2. employees consistently coming to campus (3 or more days a week), and 
    3. third party visitors. 
  • If you fall into one of these groups, upload your vaccination status or request for an exemption (religious or medical) beginning October 1 (see top of page). Employees — classified, faculty, administrators — must use their 365 email account. Once your information is verified, you will receive an email confirming you are cleared to be on campus. (A mobile App will be available soon).
  • Employees and students who are mostly remote this semester will receive notification by October 15 directing them to begin uploading their vaccine status or exemption form.
  • In planning for Spring registration, students and employees intending to be in-person in Spring 2022, can begin submitting vaccination status or exemptions requests on November 1st.
  • If you are not yet vaccinated, visit SF.GOV for vaccination locations throughout the City of SF.

We will continue to inform the College community through follow-up messages on our phased-in approach to the COVID Safety Campaign. Please make sure to check your CCSF email and the COVID webpage. 

In UNITY,

 
Dianna Gonzales, J.D.
Interim Chancellor

On September 7, 2021, the Chancellor sent a message to the college community regarding a phased in return to In-Person Operations, beginning October 1, 2021.

Read the Chancellor's Message

On August 12, 2021 the CCSF Board of Trustees passed a Vaccine Mandate resolution, which directs the Interim Chancellor to come up with a plan and protocol for requiring vaccination status. A draft of such plan will be presented at the August 26, 2021 Board of Trustees meeting for further discussion and feedback. We are still registering students for Fall Classes and proof of vaccination IS CURRENTLY NOT REQUIRED to attend all classes.

Read the Resolution

Dear Community,

The current situation with the Delta variant emphasizes how the COVID pandemic is a fluid and evolving situation. We will continue to proceed with caution.

Our caution has been effective. While we have had infections among employees and students, we have not had an outbreak at the College. Our contact tracing has not tied any of these infections to an in-person activity at the College.

Per the CDC mandated guidelines for higher education, we will continue requiring social distancing and mask-wearing inside all of our facilities and locations, regardless of vaccination status. We also continue to restrict building access to College facilities. For the Fall we have planned for mostly remote delivery of services.

As for a vaccine mandate, there are several things in the works, such as uniform guidelines from the state Chancellor's office. Please access the responses from our own employee and student surveys conducted late spring semester and the next steps to collect information regarding current vaccination status, at the top of our COVID updates page.

Finally, at the August 26th Board of Trustees meeting, we will be sharing updates from the Return to Campus workgroup, including the possibility of a vaccine mandate and how such a mandate can be operationalized. At this time, the College is not requiring proof of vaccination and the Fall in-person classes scheduled will continue as planned.

Please stay safe by getting vaccinated. You can find out more information about getting the COVID vaccine here.

Regards,

The Human Resources Team

City College has concluded surveys of students and employees about COVID-19 and returning to campus for Fall 2021. Survey results and information about returning to campus are here:
