Students, faculty and staff across the University of California this fall will be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to access campuses.
Not so at Solano Community College.
When the school begins fall instruction on Aug. 17, students and staff will not be required to be vaccinated in order to attend classes or set foot on the campus.
About 80 percent of the classes will still be online during the semester, according to the school’s president, Celia Esposito-Noy. The president also said that services will continue to be offered remotely, with some services offered in-person by appointment only. She also said that the school’s in-person classes have been and will continue to follow strict CalOSHA safety protocols including daily symptom checks, requiring masks indoors, and faculty are prepared to move to remote instruction, if needed.
