COVID-19 Resources and Information

Policies

Since April 1,  2022, the wearing of masks on campus has been optional; however, you are encouraged to continue wearing masks while on campus.

In these three cases, masks are required:

    • If you test positive, you are required to stay home for five days. When returning to campus after the five days, you must wear a well-fitting mask for days 6-10 after your symptom onset or positive test result.

    • Anyone who has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 must continue to wear a mask when around others for the full 10 days after exposure.

    • When visiting the counseling center on campus.

Students

Beginning January 1, 2023, COVID-19 vaccinations and attestations will no longer be required to take classes at Edmonds College. 

Students working or training for positions in healthcare, childcare and other industry specific areas where vaccination and/or masking is required will continue to meet those program specific requirements. Additionally, some offices/ services may have industry specific requirements. Please check with your instructor for specific program requirements. 

As with all healthcare settings, masks will still be required in the campus counseling center. 

Report when you test positive

Everyone who works and learns on campus must submit a health report when they test positive for COVID-19. Keeping you informed of cases on campus will help keep us all healthy. Reporting cases to employees is a Labor and Industries requirement so until this requirement is lifted, daily case reports will continue to be issued.

Employees

Vaccinations will remain required for all current and new employees through the end of the 2022-2023 academic year, June 30. Medical or religious exemptions may still be requested. Employees on an exemption must wear a mask on campus at all times. Masks remain optional for vaccinated employees.

At this time, in accordance with the Governor’s Higher Education Proclamation and the  Snohomish Health District, social distancing is no longer required on campus. 

If you test positive or have symptoms, please stay home and file a report

Typically, you are required to stay home for five days. When returning to campus after the five days, you must wear a well-fitting mask for days 6-10 after your symptom onset or positive test result.  Please follow up with a college health officer for the latest. 

Anyone who has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 must wear a mask when around others for the full 10 days after exposure.
