By governor’s order, CBC will require full vaccination for employees starting October
18, 2021. During fall quarter of 2021, students will be encouraged but not required
to be vaccinated. The vaccine mandate for employees also extends to volunteers, visitors,
and contractors working on site.
During winter quarter of 2022, students will be required to be vaccinated, or declare
a religious, medical, personal, or philosophical objection. This information may be
collected as early as October 2021 for students registering for winter quarter. This
approach will ensure a safer campus community, while allowing all students to continue
Vaccines are widely available in our community, and you are encouraged to visit the
WA Vaccine Locator to make an appointment. For more information on the safety and the importance of
vaccines, visit the U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s vaccine information page. There is leave available for full-time employees on CBC's COVID-19 Vaccine Leave intranet page.
We are continuing to monitor announcements from the state regarding vaccination status
and/or requirements for public employees or institutions of higher education that
may impact CBC. In the event a future requirement is announced, CBC will fully evaluate
the requirement and share information with our campus community, along with guidance
and applicable protocols, etc.
