EnTry to Campus Protocol for Students

Effective January 3, 2023

While on campus, everyone is expected to follow specific protocols to help ensure the health and safety of the Compton College community and the public.

All Currently Enrolled Students

Symptom Screening

Students 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.

Student Vaccination Requirement Expired December 9, 2022.
Reporting a Positive COVID-19 Case

The "Report a Positive COVID-19 Case" form is available via the MyCompton portal and includes questions necessary to determine quarantine and isolation guidelines and assist with contact tracing.


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.


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.
