The Critical Incident Management Team, a cross functional team representing SMCC faculty and staff employee groups, developed recommendations prior to returning staff to campus and re-establish services while focusing on safety, health, and wellbeing of our employees, students, and campus visitors. The team established (6) areas of focus to organize task force groups and identify specific recommendation in the following areas.

  1. Prepare the buildings
  2. Prepare the workforce
  3. Social distancing protocols
  4. Classrooms, Content, IT Systems
  5. Health Safety checks and access control
  6. Reduced touch-points and increased cleaning

SMCC aligned their planning to ensure compliance with all MCCCD Covid-19 mandates and procedure recommendations; masks, social distancing, health/safety protocols, etc. Return to campus plans are subject to change as MCCCD, local and national health/safety trends indicate an increased risk to the campus community.
