Frequently Asked Questions
Masks are required indoors in all campus facilities regardless of vaccination status. Masks are optional outdoors.
As of October 1, 2021, vaccination - or a combination of an approved exemption, weekly negative COVID-19 tests, and wearing a KN/N-95 mask - will be required for all students, faculty, and staff to enter any college building, teaching location or in-person class.
Members of the public 12+* years old visiting campus on a limited basis and entering any college building or facility are also subject to this requirement, and must show proof of vaccination or a negative PCR COVID-19 test result taken within the prior 72 hours, and complete a health survey by texting SAFESBCC to (805) 301-6578.

You must fill out the Healthy Roster survey, visit a check-in table on-campus and be cleared for entry, and pick up your daily wristband. More information about what you need to bring to check-in and get a wristband is available here.
You must be fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption. You must fill out the Healthy Roster survey, visit a check-in table on-campus and be cleared for entry, and pick up your daily wristband. More information about what you need to bring to check-in and get a wristband is available here.
No, you only need to check in and get your wristband once daily. If you lose your wristband, please return to a check-in table to get another one.
You will not be allowed in classrooms or other offices/service areas without a wristband. For the health and safety of all on campus, please plan to arrive in time to receive a wristband. If you are running late, a few more minutes to get a wristband is preferable to not getting one and then not being able to attend your in-person class.
If you are partially vaccinated, please speak with your instructor about options for accommodating you until you are fully vaccinated. You may also be able to apply for a Partial Vaccination Deferral which could allow you to come to campus with a weekly negative COVID-19 test and an N-95 mask.
You will be contacted by a member of the COVID Response Team. They will give you further instructions and information.

While SBCC strongly recommends vaccination to help reduce the impact of the Delta variant on the community, vaccination is only a requirement to enter SBCC campus buildings or teaching locations. If you are taking only online classes and do not anticipate needing to enter any campus buildings or teaching locations, then we do not need to verify your vaccination status at this time.
