Dear Cambridge College Community: 

We look forward to safely welcoming our new students, faculty, and staff, and all of those who are returning to Cambridge College for the Spring 2022 semester.  As the pandemic continues to evolve with new variants, we are truly living the adage that the only constant is change.  However, what has not changed is our steadfast commitment to keeping you safe, healthy, and informed.   

This pandemic has forced us to think outside of the box and be creative resulting in new practices that have helped to mitigate the cases of COVID-19 across our campuses.  The low incidence of COVID-19 cases throughout our college community to-date confirms that our protocols have been effective. 

This notification and the Spring 2022 Announcement displayed, the Massachusetts On-Campus COVID-19 Protocols, provide an update on essential protocols and practices for students, faculty and staff returning to Massachusetts campuses.  The College’s protocols are based on CDC guidelines and are subject to change accordingly.  The following protocols continue to be in effect: 

  1. Full vaccination is required to be on campus. A CC Vaccination Card verifying vaccination must be obtained and used for daily entry;
  2. Health attestation at the security desk is required to enter campus; and
  3. Masking and social distancing are required while on campus.

Further details regarding our updated COVID protocols are provided in the attached Master Massachusetts On-Campus COVID-19 Protocols.  Additional information including a list of COVID-19 FAQ’s for staff, faculty and students can be found on our website and MyCC. 

All faculty, staff and students coming on campus will be required to have a booster vaccination.  Because eligibility to receive boosters depend on the date of your final vaccination, we are establishing a deadline of May 31st for everyone to get their booster vaccination.   

If you have any questions regarding these protocols or conditions on campus for your return, please do not hesitate to contact COVIDRC@cambridgecollege.edu.  Please also remember to check the CC website and MyCC regularly for updates.
