COVID Safety Campaign FAQs
On August 12, 2021 the Board of Trustees passed a COVID vaccine mandate. The purpose of the mandate is to create a safe environment for our students and employees to come to campus for classes and other services. Our vaccination policy and mask requirements are measures the Board and the CDC have required to reduce the spread of COVID.
Yes. Students and employees can report their current vaccination status, claim vaccination exemption, and upload supporting documentation via the MyCCSF Mobile App. Visit the COVID-19 Updates page for details.
If you have already uploaded your information to the website, you do not need to re-enter your vaccine or exemption request.
Effective October 1, 2021, the College’s COVID Safety Campaign vaccination website went live.
Students and employees can report their current vaccination status, claim vaccination exemption, and upload supporting documentation via the MyCCSF Mobile App or Vaccination Status Website. Visit the COVID-19 Updates page for details.
If you are having issues uploading your records in the steps described on the webpage, or having any other technical issues, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once your vaccination or exemption/negative test result has been verified, you will receive an email confirming verification which you must show to access campus facilities.
The COVID-19 vaccine is one of the most important ways to keep everyone safe during this pandemic. San Francisco is currently vaccinating people who live, work, or learn in San Francisco and are 12 years and older. For more information about getting the COVID-19 vaccine, visit the San Francisco COVID-19 vaccination site.
COVID-19 testing is available on the CCSF Ocean campus every Monday from 12 to 2 pm, for individuals with approved exemptions. To make an appointment, please contact CCSF Student Health Services at email@example.com.
For information about other testing locations, please visit the sf.gov COVID-19 testing page.
Individuals may request an exemption from this requirement for one of the following reasons:
- An excuse from receiving COVID-19 vaccine due to a Medical Contraindication or Precaution.
- A verified physical or mental disorder or condition that limits a major life activity and any other condition recognized as a disability under applicable law.
- Religious Objection
- An individual’s objection to receiving the COVID-19 vaccine is based on that person’s sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance.
Individuals granted an exemption will be able to participate in in-person activities after submitting the results of a COVID PCR test taken within 72 hours (3 days) of the first in-person activity. Continued participation in in-person activities is contingent on the submission of weekly negative COVID tests. COVID testing is available in the Student Health Center.
Employees who are currently fully remote MAY be required to return to in-person operation. That is why they need to work with their supervisors. If the work can continue to be performed remotely, then the supervisor should allow that to continue. For other services being delivered remotely, which primarily affects classified and administrators, those employees MAY be required to provide in-person services IF required by the operational needs. Current faculty assignments will NOT change this semester. For classified, unless operationally necessary, for the balance of the Fall semester, we are encouraging mostly remote delivery of services.
