Indoor Mask Policy
CCS requires all individuals – regardless of vaccination status – to wear a face covering while indoors on campus, in compliance with Gov. Jay Inslee’s indoor mask mandate. There will be limited exceptions when face coverings won’t be required, such as office spaces not easily accessible to the public where individuals are vaccinated, and when working alone indoors or in a vehicle with no public face-to-face interaction.
According to the Washington State Department of Health best practices, a mask or face covering is:
- Anything that completely covers your mouth and nose and fits securely on the sides of your face and under your chin
- Made of two or more layers of tightly woven fabric with ties or straps that go around your head or behind your ears.
More protective coverings, such as masks or respirators may be required in the workplace.
Student Employees Must be Fully Vaccinated as a Condition of Employment
Student employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. As with state employees and private healthcare workers, there will be no test out option. The governor’s requirement provides exceptions that employees may apply for, including “legitimate medical reasons and sincerely held religious beliefs.”
