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

Entry to Campus Protocol including 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.

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.


Refer to the LACDPH "COVID-19 Guidance for Education" (updated 4/3/2024). These guidelines aim to support safe in-person learning in LA County by detailing preventive strategies and actions. They apply to Early Care and Education (ECE) sites, TK-12 schools, youth programs, and Institutes of Higher Education (IHE).

Masks In most circumstances, masking may be recommended for individuals in the community based on the level of COVID-19 in the community, as reported by weekly CDC COVID-19 Hospital Admission Levels.

Wearing a mask is a great way to reduce the spread of respiratory infections, including COVID-19. Click here to view the LACDPH Mask guidance.
