Stay strong. Stay healthy. Stay connected.


College of Marin (COM) students, faculty, staff, and visitors - stay #COMSTRONG!

How? Stay up-to-date with information about COVID-19 prevention and self-care; COM's cleaning and disinfecting protocols; COVID-19 training; health and safety measures; how the College addresses any COVID-19 hazards; and how Marin County's current tier status affects College operations.

Symptom Screening must be completed prior to each campus visit.

Employees: COM's top priority is the health and safety of our campus community. It is important that all employees know how to report COVID-19 symptoms, exposures, and hazards. More importantly, that this reporting is invited without fear of retaliation. Responding to COVID-19 concerns promptly and thoughtfully will help reduce the spread of the virus and keep our campuses safe.

Plans and Procedures


Current Marin County Tier Status: TIER 2 (RED) - Substantial 

Every county in California is assigned to a tier based on its test positivity and adjusted case rate. COM’s reopening process is shaped by the state tiers, and is designed to be scaled up or down depending on the environment and Marin County's public health context in that particular time period. The College may decide to act more conservatively and may reduce capacity as needed to protect community health.

END OF COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH ORDER

Gradually resume in-person instruction, activities, and events. Continue monitoring critical indicators and alter scope of reopening, if necessary to protect campus health and safety.

External Environment

Enough immunity must be present in the community through natural immunity or immunization to allow unrestricted activity across all domains. Given COVID-19’s prevalence in the community, this will take time to achieve.
