On Campus Safety Protocols for All Employees

If you need to be physically on campus at any time, you must follow the below health and safety protocols. These are processes that CCA is following to ensure a safe community on campus. As a reminder, our protocols are subject to change as we receive more information from the SF Department of Public Health and other resources. 

Daily Health Assessment
All CCA community members (staff, faculty and students) are required to complete a daily health assessment on the days that they plan to physically be on campus. This assessment must be completed prior to arriving on campus. CCA is using the #CampusClear mobile app for the assessment.  It's very important to follow the notification instructions upon completion of the assessment. 

COVID-19 Testing
As is our current process, if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, have been exposed to COVID-19 or tested positive for COVID-19, you must notify HR immediately. You will be advised to immediately quarantine for a minimum of 10 days since the onset of symptoms and to seek testing or medical care. At this time, testing under these circumstances is still required per CDC guidelines, even if you have received the COVID-19 vaccine.

Health & Safety Guidelines
Anyone coming to campus must comply at all times with all applicable Department of Public Health (DPH) COVID requirements and must comply with all applicable elements of the COVID–19 Prevention Plan. Please continue to follow these guidelines when you are physically on campus. 

Travel Guidelines

If you are an on campus or hybrid employee, and you choose to travel in your personal time, please follow the CDC and Higher Education Directives guidelines on travel for unvaccinated individuals prior to returning to campus. These guidelines recommend that anyone (unvaccinated or vaccinated) who has traveled, should quarantine for 10 days post travel and obtain a COVID-19 test within 3-5 days of returning from their trip. You must still quarantine for the full 10 days, even if you receive a negative test result. Although we recognize that many of us are becoming vaccinated, our entire campus is not yet fully vaccinated, so for health and safety precautions for all, we will continue to follow the more stringent protocols. If you are unable to work remotely during this quarantine period, please connect with your Manager and HR so that you may use COVID-19 Supplemental Sick time.

When can I access the campus?

Access to both the Oakland and San Francisco campuses is limited and in most cases by appointment only, except for CCA essential staff. The Oakland campus is reopening with limited access on March 29, 2021.

Curbside pick-up
Students, faculty, and staff should arrange appointments to access campus directly through the department from which they require service or information, such as Media Services, Libraries, specific studios (through the Studio Operations Manager), etc. These appointments will be primarily for pick-up of items such as student tool kits for specific programs, media equipment, or books and will be through contactless curbside pick-up whenever possible.

Click here for details on the schedule available for students and faculty needing to return books and equipment to the Libraries. For information regarding Media Center access, please click here. For studio access, please email

Other scheduled access
The SF and Oakland campuses continue to have limited access and will be primarily accessible only to students and faculty participating in hybrid Spring semester courses, students approved to access shop/studio space (graduate students and graduating seniors), essential employees and students living in Founders Hall. Departments are permitted to send a representative regularly to pick-up mail from the mail room during open hours.

If scheduled access cannot be accommodated through contactless curbside pick-up, or if another need arises, all students, faculty, and staff must sign in with Public Safety when accessing campus. For students looking to access items from their studio space, please email to arrange a time. Individuals who have been approved to come to campus must follow CCA's health and safety protocols and sign in with Public Safety upon arrival. Public Safety is located in the main building at 1111 Eighth Street in San Francisco and the Oliver Arts Center in Oakland. Be sure to bring your CCA ID.

Vendors and contractors
Vendors, contractors, or consultants who are required to come to campus are required to sign in with Public Safety (see "other scheduled access" above) and must be cleared through the CampusClear app at sign-in. Arranging departments are responsible for informing contractors of these requirements. (This does not apply to regular delivery services such as USPS, FedEx, etc.)

Dogpatch studios
Access to the Dogpatch MFA studios reopened on March 8, 2021 and will be addressed directly with the MFA students and faculty.

What are the hours to access mail and deliveries?

Staff can pick up mail and deliveries from shipping and receiving on both campuses Monday through Friday, 10 am to 2 pm. Anyone coming to pick up mail or packages on either campus must sign in with Public Safety and present their CCA ID. Face coverings are required to be worn at all times.

Public Safety checkpoints are located in the Oliver Art Center on the Oakland campus and at 1111 Eighth Street and 184 Hooper Street in San Francisco.
