Campus Updates 03/17/22

Hi Campus Community,   

Here are this week’s updates!



  • Zero new positive cases were reported in the last 7 days. 
  • Consider using WA Notify (also known as Washington Exposure Notifications), a free tool that works on smartphones to alert users if they may have been exposed to COVID-19 without sharing any personal information. It is completely private and does not know who you are or track where you go. 
  • Care Connect Washington offers food, personal care kits, and financial assistance to people who need to isolate or quarantine due to COVID-19. Care coordination services make it easier for people to stay home to help slow the spread of the illness. Call 1-800-525-0127, then press #. 


  • For spring quarter, students new to taking hybrid or in-person classes or those with prior holds on their accounts need to attest to their vaccination status or an eligible exemption by April 17, 2022. Holds will be put onto accounts of students who have not done so. Students taking classes entirely online are not required to attest to their vaccination status. 
  • If you need a ride to your vaccination appointment, visit Find A Ride or call the Transportation Resources Line at 425-943-6760 (Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Dial 5 for interpretation). 

For spring quarter 2022 planning: 

  • As part of our phased reopening of campus plan, ~50% of classes are scheduled to have an in-person component for spring.  
  • Campus operating hours:  
  • Monday-Thursdays 8 am-5 pm: all services will be available in person, as well as online.   
  • Fridays 8am – 4:30 pm: all services will be available online.  Some services will be offered in person as well, as approved.   
  • Employee work schedules:  
  • Classified and administrative exempt staff will work on campus a minimum of 3 days/week during Monday-Thursday (or during Monday-Friday, if approved).   
  • Faculty librarians, counselors, and advisors will work on campus a minimum of 2-3 days/week during Monday-Thursday (or during Monday-Friday, if approved).  
  • Based on feedback from faculty (to their division dean) regarding their planned spring use of offices, specific faculty offices will be maintained and cleaned daily throughout the quarter. Faculty may meet with students one-on-one or for office hours either in faculty offices or online.  Faculty, please update your dean if you have a planned regular (multiple times per week) use of your office during spring quarter. 
  • Parking on campus remains free for spring quarter; no permits will be required but hazardous/illegal parking will accrue fines. 
  • Faculty, staff, and students will be able to travel domestically for conferences, professional development, and other business needs, as budgets allow. Follow CDC guidelines on domestic travel. International travel will be subject to review on a case-by-case basis, informed by CDC requirements and recommendations
  • Indoor masking: thank you to the 639 students and employees who responded so thoughtfully to the masking requirements survey.  Executive Team is still in the process of reviewing that extensive feedback, as well as benchmarking ourselves with sister colleges.  Many nearby colleges have yet to make a decision about indoor masking for their spring quarters. We hope to share a decision very soon. 


  • Open office hours with the COVID-19 Support Coordinator: Thursdays, 10:30 am – 11:30 am, via Zoom.      
  • Email or call 206-495-7744 during regular College operating hours.  Check the COVID-19 Updates site for the latest information.  
  • New information and guidance about COVID-19 is continually evolving; check these official state and county information sources to stay informed:
