Ventura College is committed to the health and wellness of students.

VCCCD Board of Trustees unanimously approved the policy COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement for Employees and Students at its August 10 meeting. The policy requires that everyone who accesses in-person, on-site campus/District programs or who participates in off-site District/college services in person will be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19, effective October 15, 2021, or to have an approved medical or religious exemption. 

If you are on campus with an exemption, you will be required to wear a face mask and provide weekly negative COVID-19 tests.

As a reminder, face masks are mandatory at all campuses indoors, regardless of COVID vaccination status. They can be voluntarily removed outdoors—regardless of vaccination status—or inside when eating, drinking, or working alone in a closed space. (Remember to stay at least 6 feet from other people when your mask is removed in these situations.)

And remember, time is ticking. Fully vaccinated means that 14 days have passed since the last dose of your vaccine. You will need to be vaccinated by 10/15 in order to attend class on 10/16.
