Masks Optional Starting Tomorrow

Dear CC Community,

Beginning tomorrow, March 1, masks are optional on the CC campus. 

We are grateful that you have come together throughout the pandemic, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread, showing compassion for our campus community and community at large. 

As we adjust protocols based on public health data, please continue to express care for those who remain anxious or concerned for their health or the health of others. 

Key Components of CC’s Mask-Optional Policy:    

  • All are welcome to wear a mask at any time, for any reason.  N95-type masks are the most protective
  • Faculty, staff, or students may ask others to wear masks in the classroom, office, or meeting space.  Please be respectful of these requests. 
  • We will continue with regular screening testing of students and adjust protocols as needed.     
  • Our mask-optional policy aligns with current CDC masking guidance.   
Our goal is, and has been, to approach decision making holistically: guided by scientific data, along with the well-being of our community. We encourage continued empathy for the concern we hear from students, staff, and faculty who — themselves, or their loved ones at home — are not able to be vaccinated or whose immune systems do not create robust responses to vaccination. 

Campus resources are always available, please reach out for additional support as we navigate this next phase of the pandemic:
