Housing & Dining COVID-19 Protocols

Last updated on Feb 14, 2022

As a reminder, CCA’s mask policies have not changed and will remain in effect for the duration of the semester. Face coverings (masks) must be worn at all times indoors on CCA’s campuses for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. Face coverings may be removed outdoors for vaccinated individuals. Unvaccinated individuals are required to wear masks at all times. A well-fitted non-vented N95, KN95, or KF94 respirator mask or a well-fitted surgical/procedural mask with a cloth mask worn over it is strongly recommended.

It is our top priority to ensure the health and safety of our residents, and the entire community.

Testing requirement for all for Spring 2022

Before returning to campus or moving into student housing, all faculty, staff, and students must test negative for COVID-19. We will accept PCR, at-home, or rapid tests, but they must be dated within 72 hours of your first visit to campus. Please visit this page for updates on how to submit your negative test results.

COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement for All

All students, staff and faculty are required to be vaccinated. Students arriving for the first time on campus for Spring 2022 are required to be fully vaccinated by January 10, 2022, and must attest that they are fully vaccinated before arrival (see below). Students will also be required to provide physical proof of vaccination on move in day, January 10, 2022.

Updating your Vaccination Status

To update your vaccination status, please log into Workday and follow these instructions. Entering your vaccination status as soon as possible will help inform updates to existing on-campus policies and protocols, and will also inform your ability to move-in to CCA housing on January 10, 2022.

No External Guest Policy

Effective Monday, October 4th, 2021, the guest policy has been updated for the residential halls. Please see the guest policy here (subject to change).

Face Coverings Required in Housing & Dining Facilities

Face coverings (masks) are required at all times on CCA's campus, including in Residential shared spaces (common areas, lobby, hallways, elevators) and in Makers Cafe. Face coverings can be removed while eating and drinking. Per the CDC, currently, there is no evidence to suggest that COVID-19 is spread by handling or eating food. However, consuming refreshments, snacks, and meals with persons not from the same household may increase the risk of getting and spreading COVID-19 among people who are not fully vaccinated because masks are removed when eating or drinking. Therefore, it is recommended that you maintain social distancing while eating indoors or consider finding space to eat outdoors when space and weather allow. Be sure to wash your hands frequently.

No eating or drinking in the shared common lounges at this time.
