As we return to campus, the top priority continues to be the health and safety of everyone in our community. Federal, state and local data and guidelines have been central to our planning efforts. Additionally, the concerns and priorities identified by our community, students, and constituency groups are reflected in our policies.
All employees working on campus are expected to abide by the current safety measures:
Employees are required to be vaccinated. Proof of vaccination for employees is managed by HR with digital upload via Workday. If you have questions about the process, please contact Michael Walker, health and safety specialist.
COVID-19 Testing for Students and Employees
GCCCD employees can get tested for COVID-19 on either campus and can test more than once. Testing is not available to the public or family members of students or employees.
Current information on testing dates, times, locations, and the registration process can be found on the Vaccine Policy page.
