COVID-19 Faculty Updates

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).

COVID-19: Daily Pre-Screening Update

As a result of the updated Cal/OSHA regulations, you will notice that we have added a vaccination status self-attestation question to the pre-screening form. At this time we are asking only for self-attestation and we will not be requiring documentation of vaccination status. The daily pass you receive upon completion of the form will not indicate your vaccination status. This information is retained in the system and is only accessible by the system administrators.  More information on the KCCD Campus Pass App

Please help us protect everyone by wearing a mask in all campus buildings regardless of vaccination status.

Campus Update:

Mammoth Campus

Mono County has issued indoor mask order for all vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals in Mono County beginning August 6th.

Inyo County does not have a mask order for unvaccinated individuals in indoor public spaces but is considering one. They strongly support the recommendation of universal masks indoors.


All Kern County Residents 12 and older are Now Eligible to Receive COVID-19 Vaccine. Residents can make an appointment through, which has been available to the public since February. Local pharmacies are also making appointments online.

Faculty Updates


Dear Colleagues,

On March 19, 2020, the Kern Community College Board of Trustees adopted Resolution No. 2020-06 calling for the Chancellor to take any and all action necessary to develop and implement a COVID-19 vaccine requirement for District employees, students, and others who access District facilities. This was done in an effort to preserve the health and safety of the District’s students and employees. 

The vaccine requirement will be phased in over time to allow employees and students to comply with the resolution and to address potential exemptions as allowed for in the resolution. It will allow us to continue to phase in our safe return to work.

Incorporating this direction from the KCCD Board, the college’s COVID-19 team will be completing the latest version of the Cerro Coso Safe Reopening Protocols this coming week, with the intention of providing you clear guidance on workplace and classroom protocols for the Fall 2021 semester. In addition, we will provide ongoing updates as more details are made available.

As an added safety measure, we continue to ask that employees, students, and visitors wear approved face coverings regardless of vaccination status while on any Cerro Coso campus.

I have enjoyed meeting many of you for the first time in person these last few weeks and view these added measures as supporting our much anticipated return to face-to-face instruction and student support services.

For your convenience, I have included a link to the full resolution and an associated Kern Community College District Q&A For the Vaccine Mandate below:

Be well,












Coming to Cerro Coso campus during COVID-19 “Stay at Home”? Please fill out this form.

The deadline to drop students from your class(es), has been extended!  You will be able to drop students using Banweb through the end of the semester. This withdrawal will result in an Excused Withdrawal (EW). Dropping students who have disappeared out of your class instead of letting them get Fs or Ds at the end of the term will protect their academic record.
