COVID-19 Resources for Employees
The COVID-19 pandemic represents the gravest public health challenge faced in a century. The San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) is committed to providing a safe working environment for each of our colleagues. Many members of the SDCCD community are working on campuses to sustain the essential services that protect and serve each campus. We have developed this page to help you have access to the information you need whether you are working from home remotely or preparing to return to work.
The Chancellor provides periodic updates to clarify the District’s return to work guidance and timeline. Employees returning to work should utilize these guidelines to assist you with a safely returning to work. Additionally we want you to be aware of steps to assist you in establishing and maintaining SDCCD preventative measures.
We also want our employees to be informed regarding the various requirements regarding COVID-19, from Travel Regulations, to Quarantine and Isolations, and, after a COVID-19 event when it is safe to return to work following a COVID-19 diagnosis. We have also implemented other activities that are intended to keep you safe now and in the future, such as on-campus screening, cleaning/disinfecting, safety training, and information for COVID-19 leave needs.
