Face Coverings Guidance
Masks are required for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, in all indoor locations.
Continue to carry a mask in anticipation of entering spaces where a face covering may be required. The district will continue to provide masks to all employees who request a mask, per Cal/OSHA guidance.
The college masking requirement will match the CDC community risk level for Alameda County:
Alameda County, California
COVID-19 Community Level: High
- High Risk (Red):
- Masks are required for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, indoors in all District and College locations.
- Medium Risk (Yellow):
- Masks are required for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, in classrooms and laboratories and all areas identified by "Dark Purple Public Specialized areas" on the Safe Work Practices Zone Maps for each location.
- Individual faculty, staff and area managers may request that all individuals wear a mask in certain settings. Please continue to carry a mask to wear in these situations to protect the health of vulnerable people in our community and respect those who make these requests
- Low Risk (Green):
- Masks are optional in all District and College locations.
Please continue to carry a mask with you at all times, as specific areas on campus may still require masking.
Updates to the masking requirement will occur on Thursday of each week and apply for the following calendar week (Sunday through Saturday).
Proper Use of Face Coverings
Proper use of face coverings is required for all students and visitors while indoors. Face coverings must be free of visible holes and cover the nose and mouth at all times, when required. A face covering does not include a scarf, ski mask, balaclava, bandana, turtleneck, collar, or single layer of fabric.
