Masks are now optional, but encouraged

Beginning Spring Quarter (Monday, April 4) masks in most indoor settings at Seattle Colleges will be “optional but encouraged.” If public health conditions change, face-covering requirements will be reassessed.   

 Masks will continue to be required in some instances, including but not limited to:   

  • Clinical and other health-care settings and educational programs (dental hygiene, respiratory care, nursing, EMT, NA-C, etc.).   
  • For those who test positive and are returning to campus after isolation at home.  
  • For those who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.   

Please contact healthandsafety@seattlecolleges.edu immediately to report a positive test, exposure, or symptoms. More information is available about what to do when someone is sick with COVID-19.  

  Continue to bring a mask when coming to any of our campuses or locations. Areas requiring masks will be clearly marked with new signage, and masks will continue to be provided at centralized locations on each campus.  

People in our Seattle Colleges community may need or choose to wear—or not wear—a mask for a wide range of reasons. Please respect the choices others make for their own health, safety, or comfort.  

Other protocols remain in place   

All other protocols remain in place, including the daily wellness screening, COVID-19 vaccination requirements, isolation/quarantine standards, and contact-tracing protocols.
