Campus Updates- All Staff (01/20/22)

Hi Campus Community,  

Here are this week’s updates! 


  • Classes: winter 2022 classes continue as planned: in-person, hybrid, and online. 
  • Vaccinations:  
  • 92% of in-person students have attested to their vaccination status or have claimed an eligible exemption for winter quarter.   
  • You now can get Pfizer and Moderna vaccine boosters 5 months (instead of 6 months) after completing the original vaccine series. Children ages 12 and up are now recommended to receive a booster as well.  See CDC statements on Pfizer and on Moderna. Boosters are available at the vaccine clinic in the Quiet Dining Room in the PUB. Walk-ins are welcome if you tell them you are a Shoreline Community College employee. 
  • Cases: Executive Team (ET) is closely monitoring the changing conditions of the pandemic, including the number of COVID-19 exposure reports submitted daily by students, staff, and faculty. Reported positive cases remain very low. Here are the numbers since the first day of winter quarter (January 10): 
  • Student positive cases: 26, which is 0.5% of total winter students. 
  • Employee positive cases: 12, which is 1.7% of total college employees. 

While Omicron has a significantly higher transmission rate, it typically is showing to have less severe symptoms in vaccinated individuals than other variants, and for a shorter period of time. 

  • Masks:  
  • KN-95 masks have been distributed to front-line staff and to faculty who are teaching in-person.   
  • Buy from a trusted source. Project N95 vets mask distributors. Armbrust USA, is a company that makes and sells medical-grade masks made in the U.S.A. by various manufacturers. 
  • PCC: the Parent Child Center has reopened.  
  • Curbside Drop-off/Pick-up: contactless drop-off/pick-up service continues Monday-Wednesday 10am-3 pm in room 2905, but closes permanently on January 27th. Laptop pick-up and return is available through the Library (4000 Building) Monday-Thursday, 8am-5pm.
