Campus Covid Protocols

CCH Fall 2021 COVID-19 Campus Safety Policies

Revised 8/27/2021

With the dynamics of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, these policies are subject to change as CDC, local, state, and national agencies update recommendations and guidelines.

CCH is thrilled and excited to welcome students back to the Los Angeles Campus.  As always, our goal is to present a safe and comfortable environment for our students, faculty, and staff. Therefore, based on the reduction of COVID-19 restrictions by the city, state and federal governments, we are also reducing the level of pandemic restrictions to allow access to our building.  There will still be a few critical protocols we all must follow to keep our 100% COVID free environment.

 

These are the protocols:

  • Everyone who enters the building must present a valid CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Card with both shots completed and dated at least 2 weeks prior to the date of the class, or a valid negative COVID test result that is no more than 72 hours old.
  • If you do not have either of these documents, you will be asked to leave and can only return when either of these can be presented.
  • If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 you will not be permitted to enter the Campus and cannot return for 10 days from the day you were diagnosed and must have a negative test result dated after the 10-day period has passed before gaining entry.
  • You must enter the building through the main lobby. The rear entrance will not be available for entry to the building.
  • Everyone who enters the building is subject to a questionnaire and a temperature check. Any temperature 100.4 F or greater is considered a fever. Persons with a fever will be asked to leave the campus.
  • All people must wear a mask while in public spaces (classrooms, lounges, lobbies, etc.) at all times while inside the building.
  • People should not congregate in the hallways for any reason and can only travel to and from a class in the building hallways to ensure proper social distancing.
  • Hand Sanitizing stations are located in common areas and should be used frequently. Please wash your hands frequently throughout the day.
  • These protocols were created using the current CDC, city, state and federal guidelines and are subject to change at any time.

At CCH, we believe it is important to take a stand by demonstrating our willingness to promote and inspire systemic change. We must speak honestly and truthfully to the ugliness of racism that permeates throughout our society today. It may be an uncomfortable conversation for some, but it is an all-too familiar reality for anyone living in this country with black or brown skin. Hiding from it, ignoring it, or being silent about it will not make it go away.
