Core In-Person Student Services Begin on September 13

Dear Shoreline Staff, 

I am writing today with this week’s return-to-campus updates.  Under the guidelines set forth in Governor Inslee’s Higher Education proclamation, the College’s status is as a COVID-19 fully vaccinated campus as of September 7, 2021.   

Campus Check In  

  • The Campus Check-In/Out process has been discontinued as of September 7. Contract tracing will continue to follow CDC guidelines. 


  • Social distancing is no longer mandated. Please take down any social distancing signage in your office area. While no office on campus is authorized to require social distancing, individuals may request social distancing from others during interactions.  
  • Contract tracing will follow CDC guidelines.    
    • If you become exposed to COVID-19 and have been on campus, please fill out the exposure reporting form. This is a confidential report for contact tracing purposes.  
  • All campus buildings have been outfitted with MERV 13 air filters, which can filter the COVID-19 virus. Filters will be monitored, maintained, and replaced on a regular basis.   
  • Continue wearing a mask indoors. This includes all indoor public spaces and when inside college transportation.  The only exceptions to this requirement are when individuals are alone in; 1) an office, 2) an enclosed cubicle, 3) a vehicle, or 4) their own room in the residence hall.  
  • Continue washing your hands regularly. Use hand sanitizer if you are not able to wash your hands.  Disinfecting wipes and gloves are not required.  
  • Stay home if you are feeling sick.  

Core Services  

  • As of Monday, September 13, core services staff will be on campus working.   
  • Core services staff do not need to request permission to come to campus on the specific days they are scheduled to work on campus.  
  • Core services will be offered in-person M-Th 8 am-5 pm, Friday 8 am-Noon, and remote from 12:00 – 4:30. Any exceptions to these hours approved will be noted on each department’s website.   
  • Requests for legitimate exemptions to on-campus work should be made to Human Resources ( ) no later than September 17, 2021.  


As we continue toward to the start of fall quarter there have been (and will continue to be) many changes that we navigate.  We’re also attempting to ensure that we do not inundate you with messages, while at the same time keeping you informed.  You may also keep apprised of these updates by reviewing the COVID-19 Updates site, or a webpage with updates specific to faculty & staff.
