Visitors

Vaccinations and attestations will no longer be required for visitors to campus.

Exemptions will be allowed for medical or religious reasons. Those with an exemption will be required to wear a mask while indoors on campus per the governor’s proclamation and guidance provided by the State Department of Health and Labor and Industries. Reasons for exemptions will not be shared outside of Human Resources and the college’s designated Health Coordination Officer. Vaccination attestation and exemption verification are located in ctcLink (Student and HCM Self-Service-Immunization Attestation tile).

EmployeesEmployees seeking a medical or religious exemption will need to apply through HR by emailing hr@edmonds.edu. Also, only a doctor or licensed health care practitioner can certify a medical exemption. 

Students: Students who are not fully vaccinated and attending in-person classes will be required to declare a religious or medical exemption in ctcLink and follow defined safety protocols at all times. Note: Being fully vaccinated means you’ve had the last dose of the vaccine to complete your vaccination (depending on the type) and have also completed the two-week waiting period.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
