Return to campus information
As our communities continue to stabilize from the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions are lifted, Clackamas Community College is welcoming students, faculty, staff and visitors back onto our campuses.
The college continues to closely monitor the worldwide situation regarding COVID-19 and continues to follow the guidance of the Oregon Health Authority, Clackamas County Public Health Department and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Return to campus update
Effective March 19, the college now welcomes and encourages masks indoors on our campuses, but does not require them, in alignment with the state’s change in its mask mandate. There is an exception to this policy: Employees and students who have tested positive must isolate for five days and then wear a mask for an additional five days.
In spring term 2022, beginning March 28, distancing requirements are in place only for classroom instruction. Outside of classrooms, in public spaces (both indoors and outside), there is no longer a physical distancing requirement.
Everyone who comes onto campus is encouraged to continue to use the Daily Self-Health Checklist. Students and employees must immediately notify their instructors or supervisor of a positive COVID-19 test.
Information and guidelines for returning to campus
As of April 2022, health agencies (Clackamas County Public Health, OHA, and CDC) recommend using the CDC’s COVID Community Level Assessment to respond to increases or decreases in positive cases in our community.
This system, which can be found on the CDC website, identifies risk mitigation strategies for low, medium and high with assigned criteria for each category.
In consultation with the Clackamas County Public Health Division, the Return to Campus Task Force, with approval from the Executive Team, has identified the following CCC responses to the new metric guidelines for COVID-19 response.
