COVID-19 Information

The BC COVID Response Team continuously updates the BC COVID-19 protocols to align with the California Department of Public Health, Centers for Disease Control, and Cal-OSHA guidelines. We are committed to maintaining the health and safety of our campus community and providing updates as they become available. Our BC COVID-19 protocols have protected our community well and we remind every member of our community to follow them.

COVID-19 Protocols

Individuals who are not feeling well should test, stay home, contact their health care provider, and notify their instructor(s). If your test is negative you may return to school. If your test is positive, you must stay home for 10 days from your test date. If you test positive or believe you were exposed to COVID-19, contact to discuss your options.

Masks are still strongly encouraged on campus and vaccination remains the most reliable preventative measure. Protocols are subject to change. COVID vaccination and testing services are free and open to the campus and the wider community.
