Coronavirus (COVID-19)



Current Operational Status: Red

During Phase Red the College is closed to the public. At this time, only essential workers will be allowed to work on-campus. Those who were working on-campus, will need to work remotely as per their telecommuting plan. We anticipate that those who have been regularly working on-campus can return on May 6, 2021 (this is a tentative date).

Employees who need to come to campus (to pick up files, technology, etc.) to work remotely, may do so with caution and are asked to not be on campus longer than needed.

Students who are currently enrolled in an on campus class will need to check in with their instructors for updates and information.

Criteria for Moving Phase to Phase

Siskiyous COVID-19 Mitigation, Implementation, and Recovery Plan

College of the Siskiyous is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all our employees, students, visitors, and helping protect the communities we serve. The Siskiyous COVID-19 Mitigation, Implementation, and Recovery Plan developed by College of the Siskiyous aligns with and adheres to the industry guidance. We do not intend this plan to be exhaustive. This guidance is interim and the plan should be considered a 'living document' and will be reviewed and updated as needed.
