Spring 2023
COVID Update

The Solano Community College Board of Trustees voted to approve a "COVID vaccine or testing" mandate which will be enforced starting Friday, October 15.

Students will be required to either get vaccinated, get tested, or take online classes and use online student services exclusively.

Students and staff members, masking is currently recommended indoors on campus to prevent the spread on cold, flu, COVID and any other contagions. The college will adjust this policy when the State or Solano County health agencies adjust due to current Community COVID levels.

Please report any staff or student COVID cases, symptoms and exposures to the COVID CASEWORKER email.  covidcaseworker@solano.edu

  • PCR Testing is available at local test and treatment locations (Vacaville and Vallejo) visit the Testing tab for more details
  • The Course Key app is no longer required to visit campus (however please refrain from on campus activities if your experiencing any COVID related symptoms)
  • Distancing is still recommended when possible and appropriate
  • Good room ventilation is a preferred practice
  • Standard Precautions will continue:
    • Perform hand hygiene
    • Use face coverings for protection, especially indoors and when county transmission is high
    • Follow respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette principles
    • Monitor your symptoms and refrain from coming to campus when ill
    • Contact your healthcare provider when exposed to COVID, for treatment and recommendations.
  • PCR Testing on campus will no longer be available
  • Course Key and Symptom Checks will be discontinued
  • Distancing is still recommended when possible
  • Standard Precautions will continue:
    • Perform hand hygiene
    • Use Masks as an optional protection
    • Follow respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette principles
    • Monitor your symptoms and refrain from coming to campus when ill
    • Contact your healthcare provider when exposed to COVID, for treatment and recommendations.
  • Students who are already fully vaccinated with both shots of either Pfizer or Moderna or the one shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will email a copy of their vaccine card to covidcaseworker@solano.edu. If a student uploaded their proof of vaccination to Canvas in the fall, that proof is sufficient for the spring, so there is no need to do it again. If you are unsure, you are free to email your proof again.
  • If you are not yet vaccinated, you have options. You can find free vaccination clinics in the community. See the schedule. Also, most pharmacies and supermarkets now offer walk-in vaccinations.
  • If you prefer not to get vaccinated, you must undergo COVID testing once a week, and upload a negative result for each test to be allowed on campus. The college will offer free testing 5 days a week (M-F), including some evening hours. The PCR test is a nasal swab test.
  • Employees and volunteers will also be required to be fully vaccinated by October 15th or submit negative COVID test results before coming to campus. For more information, click here.

MASKS ARE STILL REQUIRED INDOORS AT ALL TIMES (regardless of vaccination status)

Overview of Steps to Provide Proof

Download the CourseKey app from your smart phone’s app store or download it on your home computer or lap top. In addition to completing the access campus form referenced in #2 above, you need to complete the CourseKey health survey on the day you will be on campus.

    • To access CourseKey, you will be asked to log in using your SCC email address.
    • If you have trouble logging in please contact covidcaseworker@solano.edu
    • You will need to complete the CourseKey health survey every day that you plan to come to campus and must do so BEFORE entering campus buildings.
    • CourseKey allows us to conduct contact tracing in the case of an outbreak and meets CalOSHA compliance.

Email your vaccine verification or test results to covidcaseworker@solano.edu.

    • Proof of full vaccination includes a photo of your vaccination card showing your name, birthdate, and the day or days you received the required dosage(s), or upload the state of California SMART Health Card available at https://myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov/
    • Proof of test results includes your full name and the date and time you tested if done on campus, or the proof of testing from the off-campus provider (CVS, public health, etc.)
    • Appointment reminders for the vaccination or testing or any other unofficial document not completed by a provider is not acceptable proof of vaccination or test results.

If you choose to provide test results instead of proof of vaccine, you will need to test up to two times per week (once if you will be on campus one day per week). You will need to provide test results taken within 72 hours prior to coming to campus either by emailing results to covidcaseworker@solano.edu
