SMCCCD Social Distancing Protocols for Employees On Campus

To All SMCCCD Employees:

San Mateo County Health has ordered employers, including the San Mateo County Community College District, to distribute formal social distancing protocols to all employees. These protocols apply to any employee on District property, including the three college campuses and the District Office. This applies to all District employees currently required to work onsite, and will apply to all employees who return to work onsite in the coming months. Please read and keep a copy of these social distancing protocols.

There are five basic rules for social distancing at work:

  1. Do not enter District property if you have COVID-19 symptoms
  2. Maintain a minimum six-foot distance from other people
  3. Sneeze and cough into a cloth or tissue, or into your elbow
  4. Wear a face covering
  5. Do not shake hands or engage in unnecessary physical contact

These procedures are legally mandated by the San Mateo County Health Officer.

Currently, working-from-home remains in effect for most District employees due to the shelter-in-place order in San Mateo County. That order is in effect through May 2020 and may be extended. No decision has been made when to begin recovery back to normal business operations, but the SMCCCD Emergency Operations Center is developing protocols that will be used to restore operations in a safe and responsible way. Those protocols will be communicated with all employees before we begin to return to working onsite.
