3-20-20 SBCCD Guidance on "Stay at Home" order
Skip to main content

Dear faculty and staff:

As you may be aware, the State of California has issued a “Stay At Home” order to protect yourself and others at this time.

We know you have questions about what this “Stay At Home” order means for our campuses and district support operations.

Essentially, everyone in California is required to stay home except:

  • To go to an essential job
  • Get necessary health care
  • Get food
  • Care for a relative or friend
  • If you go out, keep at least 6 feet of distance

The California State Public Health Officer and Director of the California Department of Public Health consider schools and childcare essential to maintaining the continuity of state operations. Learn more.

If your supervisor has communicated with you to report to campus and perform an essential job, please continue to do so.

If your supervisor has communicated with you to work remotely, please continue to do so.

We are preparing to limit our face-to-face contact even more.

We will continue to keep you updated with the latest guidance from local, state, and federal health experts and policymakers.

You may also visit the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office website for systemwide updates.

We are all in this together. We thank you for everything that you are doing to keep yourself and others healthy.
