May 27 – Chancellor’s Memo: Updated NOCCCD Vaccine Requirement

May 27, 2022

Dear NOCCCD Community – At this week’s Board of Trustees meeting, the Board voted to revoke the booster requirement of the NOCCCD Vaccine Mandate for employees and students. All other protocols surrounding the vaccine mandate remain in place.

To clarify the current protocols:

Vaccine Requirement: All employees and students who come on-campus must be fully vaccinated. The current CDC definition states that someone is fully vaccinated two weeks after they get a second dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine or two weeks after they get a single dose of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Booster Shots: Booster shots are not mandatory for employees or students, though the CDC does recommend booster shots for those who are eligible.

Mask Requirement: The requirement to wear face coverings while indoors on-site will expire on June 1, 2022 for all employees and students. As COVID cases rise in the county, NOCCCD strongly recommends that people wear masks to protect themselves and others.
