MASK OFF…MAYBE. Following California’s Department of Public Health guidance and State regulations, it is now permissible for vaccinated persons to NOT wear masks while inside CPC’s building. According to the new rules effective today, only unvaccinated persons are required to mask in all Indoor Public Settings (examples: college buildings, retail, restaurants, theaters, family entertainment centers, meetings, state and local government offices serving the public). Fully vaccinated individuals are recommended to continue indoor masking when the risk may be high. If you are unvaccinated or if there is a need to wear a mask, surgical masks or higher-level respirators (e.g., N95s, KN95s, KF94s) with good fit are highly recommended.
Please continue to stay safe and avoid COVID-19 by social distancing, handwashing, cover coughs and sneezes, avoid touching your face, and please remember to stay home if you have any COVID-related symptoms!
MASK ON…MASK OFF…MASK ON AGAIN…
Unfortunately, COVID-19 remains a serious public health threat. New variants of the virus, like Omicron, continue impacting the unvaccinated population and are even producing breakthrough infections in vaccinated individuals. To help protect the health of those at the CPC campus, CPC will follow or exceed guidelines from county, state and federal authorities concerning face coverings and encourages all who are eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
Currently, the California Department of Public Health requires individuals, vaccinated and unvaccinated, to wear masks in public indoor spaces. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also recommends that all individuals wear face coverings in public indoor spaces.
Due to these regulations and the current rise in cases and hospitalizations related to COVID-19 in San Bernardino County, effective immediately CPC requires that everyone entering CPC must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status unless socially distanced or actively eating or drinking. This requirement will remain in effect until further notice and will follow county, state and federal regulations.
Please continue social distancing, handwashing, and remember to stay home if you have any Covid related symptoms!

PHYSICAL DISTANCING, MASKS and VISITOR RESTRICTIONS
Physical distancing and barrier requirements regardless of employee vaccination status are no longer required by Cal/OSHA. However, physical distancing measures we have in place are still recommended at this time; it is recommended that unvaccinated persons physically distance indoors, where they are required to wear a face covering, to the extent possible.
CPC will evaluate the need to reinstate physical distancing and/or the use of barriers if there is an outbreak on campus (3 or more cases in an exposed group of employees) or there is a major outbreak (20 or more cases in an exposed group of employees).
Restrictions for visitors of employees have been lifted. Vendors and contractors will continue to check in at the front desk.
The CPC COVID Response Team will continue to monitor the course of the pandemic, including the Delta variant, and will modify this policy as necessary to adapt to changing circumstances and guidance.
Thank you for your flexibility in the face of evolving circumstances. We appreciate the many ways in which the campus community has come together to support the student experience during this time.
