Campus Updates- All Staff (01/05/22)

Hi Campus Community,  

Here are this week’s updates! 


  • Winter 2022 classes are in-person, hybrid, and online and will begin as planned on Monday, January 10, 2022.    
  • All services are now available on campus.  Classified staff, as well as admin exempt staff, are required to work on campus a minimum of 3 days/week. Welcome back to those staff who have been working remotely since the beginning of the pandemic! 
  • New in-person or on-campus students are required to attest to their vaccination status or claim a valid medical or religious exemption by January 20, 2022, to avoid getting a hold put on their registration account. All new employees are required to verify their vaccination status or attest to an eligible exemption. 
  • All students, employees, and visitors must wear face masks indoors on campus, regardless of vaccination status. Wearing a well-fitting and high-quality mask is as important as ever with Omicron; please review King County’s Department of Health blog for tips on masking. If you or a student forget your mask, they are available at ASK ME stations and meet CDC guidelines
  • Continue diligence with hand hygiene. For classified staff who are newly back working on campus, hand sanitizer has been distributed to your office area.  
  • Disinfecting wipes and dispensers are being distributed to computer and piano labs so users can clean keyboards (not computer screens), as they would like.  In addition, employees are welcome to request wipes be distributed to their individual offices by submitting a Facilities work order. This effort is in response to requests, but also remember that per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the risk of getting infected by COVID-19 from contact with surfaces or objects is generally considered to be low. 

If you are otherwise healthy with mild symptoms and cannot find testing availability, you should presume that you have COVID-19 and self-isolate according to current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines

  • The vaccine clinic started back up on Tuesday, January 4, 2022, and is now in the Quiet Dining Room in the PUB. Walk-ins are available for boosters for ages 16 and older.  Boosters for ages 12-15 are not available at this time. 
  • We are closely monitoring the changing conditions of the pandemic and continue to discuss the latest information at the Communicable Disease Team (CDT) and Executive Team (ET).  
  • See the COVID-19 Updates site for more information. Questions? Email or call 206-495-7744 during regular College business hours.
