Campus Pass icon has a clipboard with checkmarks.

QR Codes and Contact tracing on your phone

To help us effectively contact trace any positive cases on campus, BC wants all students, faculty and staff to check in when they enter classrooms, sit at community tables or visit other communal spaces. QR codes are on doorways and tables around campus. Whenever you enter a classroom or sit at one of these tables, please scan the QR code with the Kern Community College District App.

Purpose

The QR codes serve 2 purposes:

  1. Contact tracing: BC Health Officials may use the information gathered to determine if people have been exposed and should take an action such as being tested or self-isolating.
  2. Check-in: They may be used to facilitate check-in in places. When a QR code is scanned with the Kern Community College District App, it will display the daily health certificate, green for “OK to be on campus,” red for “do not come to campus.”

Scan the QR code

  1. Open the Kern Community College District App
  2. Tap the icon in the upper left-hand corner, and your camera will open (you may need to give permission when prompted by your phone).
  3. Point it at the QR code and it will automatically take a picture of the code.
