As our nation, the economy and daily life shifts to a new era of living with the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its variants, the Los Angeles Community College District and its colleges are adapting too by resuming most business processes and daily operations from pre-pandemic models.  The District uses the following for all operations.

Health Orders and other information that everyone must read and follow, as appropriate, can be found with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health website.

Specifically go to the Institutes of Higher Education Toolkit

Indoor masking currently is not required, but could occur depending on conditions and health orders. Everyone has the choice, without consequence, to wear masking both indoors and outdoors. Free, disposable masking is available at all District and college facilities upon request.

Vaccinations are currently required as a condition of employment for all LACCD personnel. All employees must have on file proof of having completed the two-dose or single-dose vaccination. Boosters are recommended, but not required.  All employees need to be vaccinated OR have an approved exemption on file.  All employees with an exemption must test weekly if working on site at a college or District facility.

PCR Testing provided free by the District to its employees continues through December 30, 2022.  Currently, testing is available either on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the colleges and the District’s main office in Los Angeles. Employees must use their Cleared4Work account to make an appointment. Students are not required to test.  Testing schedule is subject to change.​

Antigen (Self) Testing kits are available to all personnel and students upon request as supplies last.  Students can also check with their college’s Student Health Center for additional testing options.

Self-Check is required by all employees for every day they will be working on-site. Self check for visitors is also required before entry.  No self check is required for students

Scan-in is required for all employees who work at the District’s downtown office and all visitors entering this building.



A new public health emergency has occurred in 2022 with the active circulation of the Monkeypox virus, especially in Los Angeles County.

Monkeypox is a completely different type of virus.  It is not fatal, but people can become very ill. The District remains in close contact with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. The District is closely monitoring the situation.  There has been no indication at this time that an emergency response by the District similar to COVID-19 is needed.

Testing and vaccination information is online.  Health Officials have no plans for the District’s colleges to provide any testing or vaccination. 

Read the official information from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Monkeypox website.

Emergency Operations Center 

Effective August 10, 2022, the District’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) ceased formal operations, including a centralized reporting linkage with the colleges’ Incident Command Centers, which are also scheduled for demobilization.

All business operations and functions are returning using pre-COVID-19 models.  The EOC is now demobilizing and will remain mothballed until an After-Action Report is completed later this year.
