The State of California has announced that it will lift the statewide mask mandate on February 15, as scheduled. San Mateo County has announced that it will align with the State and will lift the countywide mandate at the same time, but no official health orders have yet been issued.
At this time, the San Mateo County Community College District will maintain its masking requirements, to allow for appropriate time to consult with District stakeholder groups and discuss this policy matter with the Board of Trustees.
As such, all employees, students and visitors entering any District facility are required to wear a face mask in all indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status (surgical masks or higher-level respirators (e.g., N95s, KN95s, KF94s) with good fit are recommended). Signage to this effect is posted in all buildings throughout the District. Face masks are not required only when actively eating or drinking in designated areas.
Masks are widely available throughout all District and campus buildings.
