Entry to Campus Protocol for Employees

Updated July 14, 2022

Remote Work Until further notice, nonessential Classified employees and managers/supervisors are required to be on campus a minimum of three days per week.
Entry to Campus Protocol including Symptom Screening

Employees are encouraged to perform daily health screenings for infectious diseases,
including COVID-19, and to stay home or seek medical care for any symptoms identified.

The online wellness survey is no longer required.

Vaccination Requirement

All employees assigned to work on campus (or traveling on behalf of the District) are required to be fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption/accommodation on file with the Office of Human Resources.

  • Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination Status must be submitted via the MyCompton portal, using the tile labeled "COVID-19 Vaccination - Exemption - Test Submission."
  • Please note: Verification may take 1-3 business days.

Per Compton CCD Resolution No. 08-17-2021A, a person is considered "fully" vaccinated when two weeks have passed since they completed a COVID-19 vaccine series (for example, 1 dose of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or 2 doses within no more than 12 weeks of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine).*

*California Department of Public Health (CDPH), COVID-19 Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People.

Testing for Exempt Individuals

Employees receiving an approved exemption or accommodation from the Compton CCD vaccination requirement shall, if allowed on campus without vaccination, be subject to weekly COVID-19 testing.

Reporting a Positive COVID-19 Case

To report a confirmed positive COVID-19 case, use the online form for reporting positive COVID-19 cases via the MyCompton portal.

The "COVID-19 Positive Follow-Up Questionnaire" is available via the MyCompton portal and includes questions necessary to determine quarantine and isolation guidelines and assist with contact tracing.

Quarantine/Isolation

LACDPH Quarantine Instructions for Close Contacts:

If you are a close contact to someone with COVID-19 and you have no symptoms, you do not need to quarantine.*

You are required to:

  1. Wear a highly protective mask for 10 days
  2. Get tested 3-5 days after you were last exposed
    -- If your test result is positive, isolate
    -- If you tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 90 days, testing is not recommended unless you get symptoms
  3. Monitor your health for 10 days
    If symptoms start, test right away and stay home away from others. If you test positive, follow isolation requirements at ph.lacounty.gov/covidisolation/.

*Some close contacts are required to quarantine, for example if they are not fully vaccinated and are staying in a high-risk setting. Quarantine means staying away from others in case you become infected. Some people who are close contacts may choose to quarantine as an extra precaution to limit their exposures.

Note: Day 0 is the day of your last contact (exposure) with the infected person. Day 1 is the first full day after your last exposure.


LACDPH Isolation Instructions for People with COVID-19:

In Los Angeles County, if you have COVID-19* you are required to:

  1. Stay home, Isolate yourself, and
  2. Wear a highly protective mask, and
  3. Tell your close contacts that they have been exposed and need to follow instructions for close contacts

*You are considered to have COVID-19, if you have a positive viral test for COVID-19 and/or a healthcare provider thinks that you have COVID-19.

Masks

Everyone*, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask in all indoor public spaces on campus; except when eating or drinking (preferably outdoors).

*Refer to the LACDPH "When You Need to Wear A Mask" guidelines and the LACDPH Order of the Health Officer - Responding Together at Work and in the Community.

Cal/OSHA 3205 - COVID-19 Prevention: Employees are required to wear face coverings except:

  1. When an employee is alone in a room or vehicle.
  2. While eating or drinking at the workplace, provided employees are at least six feet apart and outside air supply to the area, if indoors, has been maximized to the extent feasible.
  3. Employees wearing respirators required by the employer, and used in compliance with section 5144.
  4. Employees who cannot wear face coverings due to a medical or mental health condition or disability, or who are hearing-impaired or communicating with a hearing-impaired person. (Employees exempted from wearing face coverings due to a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability shall wear an effective non-restrictive alternative, such as a face shield with a drape on the bottom, if their condition or disability permits it.)
  5. Specific tasks which cannot feasibly be performed with a face covering. This exception is limited to the time period in which such tasks are actually being performed.
Physical Distancing

Physical distancing is not necessary for fully vaccinated students, faculty, and staff on campus for IHEs where everyone is fully vaccinated except as indicated in CDC's Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People.

LACDPH Guidance for IHE's - Physical distancing in lecture halls, specialized classroom settings, and all other indoor spaces remains an effective mitigation strategy and is recommended if it does not interfere with campus operations. Increasing physical distance between individuals is strongly recommended in settings where masking cannot be maintained, such as in dining halls.

Building/Campus Access

Employees, who are required to work on campus, are authorized to report to their designated office area(s).

The following communal spaces are closed: Staff Lounge, breakrooms, meeting rooms, waiting areas.

Parking Permits Staff parking permits are required to park in Staff parking stalls. All parking and traffic regulations are enforced.
Travel

Fully-vaccinated employees and employees with approved exemptions may travel on behalf of the District for business purposes, with management approval.

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Travel Advisory and Guidance - updated May 17, 2022.

Los Angeles County (LAC) has no travel restrictions or requirements at this time. In LAC, masks are still required in some settings and strongly recommended in others.

Help keep California and Los Angeles County open and our communities healthy by following the CDC travel guidelines and, while in LAC, wearing a mask when required.

Ventilation
  • Campuswide HVAC systems maintained in good, working order
  • Portable high-efficiency air cleaners available upon request
  • Air filters upgraded to the highest efficiency possible
  • Quantity of outside air and ventilation increased in all working areas.
    • When weather and working conditions allow, increase fresh outdoor air by opening windows and doors. Consider using fans to increase the effectiveness of open windows - position window fans to blow air outward, not inward.
    • Decrease occupancy in areas where outdoor ventilation cannot be increased.
    • Consider moving classroom and other activities outdoors as feasible.

See State Interim Guidance for Ventilation, Filtration, and Air Quality in Indoor Environments.

Cleaning/Custodial

Maintenance and Operations has established pandemic-era service and enhanced cleaning and disinfection service. 

Following the CDC Cleaning & Disinfecting Information prioritize cleaning high-touch surfaces and areas that are used most frequently and those that entail intensive hands-on engagement with equipment, such as in CTE or STEM labs.

Compton College provides individuals responsible for the cleaning and disinfection of facilities with the appropriate PPE.

Responsibility of Individuals (Employees and Students):

  • Students and employees are encouraged to keep their personal items (e.g., cell phones, other electronics) and personal workspaces clean.
  • Students and employees are encouraged to use disinfectant wipes to wipe down shared desks, lab equipment, and other shared objects and surfaces before and after use.
  •  Use of shared objects (e.g., lab equipment, computer equipment, desks) should be limited when possible or cleaned between use with safe cleaning methods.
  • Avoid sharing electronic devices, books, pens, and other learning aids.
  • Individual offices/programs may develop a schedule for increased, routine cleaning and disinfection within their area. Employees are provided time during their shifts to implement cleaning practices. Cleaning assignments should be assigned during working hours as part of the employee's job duties.
