The purpose of this policy is to provide a safe and healthy learning and working environment by reducing the potential spread of COVID-19 on campus and in the community. To prevent further transmission of COVID-19, the college has developed the COVID-19 Fully Vaccinated Campus ReOpening Plan (FVCRP).

Full Vaccinated: A person is considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 two weeks after receipt of the second dose of a two-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) or two weeks after receipt of the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
All procedures are articulated in the COVID-19 Fully Vaccinated Campus Re-Opening Plan (FVCRP). The FVCRP identifies and documents the legal requirements, critical resources, processes and control measures that the college will undertake in the re-opening process. The plan will be a living breathing document and will be updated as needed.
