New COVID Guidelines are Here


 

New Pierce College guidelines for COVID protocol are here.

 

        Masks are optional, though highly recommended, effective June 12, 2022 (beginning of Summer Sessions).

        Students no longer need proof of vaccination to enroll, effective May 5, 2022. Vaccination is encouraged.

        Employees no longer need to provide proof of booster shots, effective May 5, 2022.

 

Student workers are Pierce employees and will still need to follow employee guidelines, which are to be fully vaccinated, excluding boosters, or have an exemption in place.

 

We encourage you to stay home if you are ill, and to continue testing for COVID, which you can do at Pierce.

 

The LACCD Board of Trustees voted for these relaxed guidelines on May 5, 2022 to more closely align with Los Angeles County protocol.

 

COVID Vaccinations Given on Campus

Our outside vendor will begin to be on campus providing vaccinations on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., which started 5/19/2022.  This will be in front of the Student Services Building by Lot 1 near the Winnetka campus entrance.

 

COVID Testing Continues for Students and Employees

Testing continues with BIOCEPT only and this is only for students and employees. They are in the same location they have always been in the North Gym.

New "Dual Delivery" Allows You to Take Your Class Both In-Person and Online


Its all about having more flexibility for your schedule.

 

Are you interested in taking a class with the option of attending it both in-person and online? You can Pierce College adopts Dual Delivery for 150 of our Spring Semester classes, and you can enroll in them now. Go in person, and on days when you cant, Zoom in online.

 

You simply need to find the DD: dual delivery notation for the class in our Spring Schedule. If you are logged in to Canvas, there is a list of Dual Delivery classes available for spring. To take Dual Delivery you must be vaccinated and cleared to come on campus.

 

Dual Delivery is made possible by new technology called The Meeting Owl (center of photo above) that your professor will use to make your classroom a hybrid one. The Owl camera is equipped with a 360 lens that captures a panoramic view of your classroom.

 

Since Pierce College is the only college in the LACCD district offering this new technology, it wont show up in the Student Information System.

 

TO FIND DD: DUAL DELIVERY CLASSES:

1.      Go Pierce's Schedules Page on our website and choose Spring 2022 Tab.

2.      Select and open the Microsoft Word version of the Spring 2022 Schedule of Classes

3.      Use the find function in Word, or Control+f, type in DD:

4.      The results show our Dual Delivery classes to enroll in.

5.      Find the class you want, and choose the Dual Delivery section number if you are cleared for COVID to come on campus.

6.      Note that every class has two section numbers for the same class.   One is DUAL DELIVERY and the other is ONLINE only.

 

CLEARED OR NOT CLEARED?

If you are cleared for COVID-19 requirements, sign up for the class section number marked DD: dual delivery. If you are not, you can still sign up for the class, but choose the ONLINE class section number only. Then you cannot attend in person. Every student and staff member must be cleared for COVID (vaccinated and having upload their proof of vaccination) to come on campus. See your college email for Cleared4 information or attend one of our upcoming Wednesday Virtual Pop-Ups for help.

 

Need help getting cleared? There's a hotline for that. Please email covid19info@piercecollege.edu.

 

Here is a schedule example, using an English 101 class. LIVE-OL means Live Online (same as Online synchronous, where you attend class remotely at a certain day and time.)  It is only the on-campus class that offers the option of attend either in person or online, and it requires verification of COVID vaccination status (Cleared4) to enroll.  The online (LIVE-OL) class does not require proof of vaccination and is fully (and only) online.
