COVID-19, Updates and FAQs
- Masks are required indoors on all OCC campuses, for both vaccinated and non-vaccinated
individuals. Face coverings (masks) are not required for individuals working alone in an office,
classroom or work space with high-wall areas.
- Masks are not required outdoors.
- If a student or employee needs a mask, they are available at no charge in Student Services and Public Safety (please take only one per person); they are also for sale in the vending machines near bookstores.
- Students who are unable to tolerate wearing a mask for medical reasons may request
a reasonable accommodation under the ADA. Students must contact the campus ACCESS
department for assistance.
An exemption to the mask mandate may also be granted for religious reasons. In such cases, students must contact the College EEO officer in HR for instructions.
If no reasonable accommodation for ADA or religious considerations is possible or the requester rejects an accommodation, they may be denied physical in person access to College buildings.
- Social distancing is encouraged.
- Stay home, if you are sick. Daily online COVID-19 screening is no longer required; continue to self-monitor for symptoms.
