The College is following the California Department of Public Health current guidelines and strongly recommends that all persons, regardless of vaccination status, continue to mask while in indoor public settings and businesses. Individuals are able to obtain masks at all of our locations as they have been a proven way to slow the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses.
For public health and reporting purposes, and in preparation should circumstances change, Cerro Coso Community College needs to continue to track positive COVID-19 cases for our staff and students. Therefore, we need any staff or students who test positive for COVID-19 to self-report. We can then investigate and communicate appropriately to our college community about any transmission concerns.
Please self-report any positive COVID-19 test either through the KCCD Campus Pass App that we used all last year, or through our online COVID-19 Positive Follow-Up Questionnaire.
We continue to employ the following COVID-19 mitigation strategies:
- Masks are strongly recommended, not required indoors - Face masks will continue to be available to all staff and students.
- Stay home when sick and get tested - If you are experiencing COVID Symptoms - get tested.
- Hand Hygiene - Hand sanitizer will continue to be available; frequent hand washing is recommended.
- Cleaning - College will continue to follow CDPH guidance on cleaning/sanitizing.
- Ventilation - High-grade filters and HEPA filters will remain a standard in our district.
In order to keep our community updated on the latest coronavirus (COVID-19) developments, Cerro Coso is providing this webpage. Our goal is to provide you with resources and the latest news on the coronavirus (COVID-19).
