New COVID-19 Requirement (PDF)
After careful monitoring and review of new guidance from the local and national agencies, College of the Siskiyous leadership in consultation with constituency groups has revised our COVID-19 requirements and mask guidelines:
The College requires all individuals (employees and students) to submit either proof of vaccination or commence submission of weekly COVID test results by Friday, January 14, 2022. Additionally, it is highly recommended that all individuals wear a mask indoors (regardless of vaccination status).
*Please note, the Mask Policy is subject to change based on the number of positive COVID cases on campus as well as changes made by Public Health and/or CalOSHA resulting from any new developments.
|Most Effective||More Effective||Effective||Least Effective|
No matter what kind of mask you wear, check the fit and eliminate gaps above the nose or on the sides. Gaps will significantly reduce the effectiveness of any mask.
The College continues to promote vaccinations, social distancing, extra cleaning and use of physical barriers.
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. Please see the January 2022 COVID-19 Prevention and Mitigation Plan below for guidance. Please note, that the January 2022 Prevention and Mitigation Plan does not include the updated Mask Policy implemented on March 22, 2022.
