What is the Face Covering and Safety Compliance Protocol?

When responding to non-compliance of campus safety measures, the procedures are as follows:

  1. Employee or student contacts Administrator on Duty at 510.460.5875 to report incident of individual not wearing face covering after being asked politely to wear one. Face coverings provided by Instructor or Campus Safety Office.
  2. Administrator on Duty responds to area to communicate expectation and provide needed Personal Protective Equipment (e.g. face covering).
  3. Administrator on Duty uses de-escalation language to ask individual for cooperation in light of the potential spread of the virus to others
    • If the individual is not a college student, employee or contractor, the Administrator on Duty will contact Campus Safety for assistance as needed.
  4. If an individual student in a class still refuses to wear a face covering, Administrator on Duty would then ask the rest of the class to leave the room or area and cancel the remainder of the in-person class meeting that day.
  5. Administrator would obtain name and W# of non-compliant individual to report to VPSS for follow up investigation, due process and appropriate discipline sanctions and/or other support services as required.
