Visiting Campus

Protocols for Visitors and Volunteers on CMC’s Campus During COVID-19

In accordance with federal, state and local guidance, CMC has taken steps to reduce the number of people on campus. As of August 10, 2020, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has directed that campus access for non‐essential visitors or volunteers is limited, to the greatest extent permitted by law. On August 7, 2020, the State of California Department of Public Health similarly directed that CMC “limit, to the greatest extent permitted by law, external community members from entering” campus and using campus resources.

Until further notice, CMC will not have any volunteers on campus. Essential visitors must adhere to the following:

  • May only come to campus with an appointment.
  • Employees requesting to sponsor a visitor must contact the Human Resources Department at least 48 hours in advance to obtain approval and include the following information: name, address, phone number of the visitor, the date/time of the visit, the location(s) the visitor will be on campus, and the reason for the visit (understanding that we can only provide approval for essential visits). Upon approving the visitor, the Human Resources Department will populate a log with this information. Human Resources will share the log with CMC’s Public Safety Department on a daily basis.
  • Visitors must not bring guests to campus (with the exception of any necessary guests, such as parents if the visitor is a minor or minors of the visitor that must accompany the visitor). Name, phone number, and email addresses of guests must also be included in the log.
  • On the day of the visit and before coming to campus, visitors must complete CMC’s online daily health screening questionnaire at https://www.cmc.edu/healthscreen and carry the verification page with them at all times while on campus. Visitors without online access to complete the questionnaire must first report to the CMC Human Resources Department located at 528 North Mills Avenue for a manual health screening before entering campus. Please note that manual health screening is only available Monday‐Friday between 6:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
  • Visitors who can neither complete the online screening nor arrive to campus during regular health screening hours must make advance, alternative arrangements with Human Resources (909‐621‐4890) to complete the health screening and obtain clearance.
  • Visitors who bring minors with them must ensure that the minors stay next to them, the minors do not touch any other person or item, and are masked if their age and health condition permit.
  • Wear face coverings (completely covering nose and mouth) and appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times.
  • Keep at least six feet of distance between yourself and others.
  • If you are ill, have a temperature at or above 99.6 degrees, have been in close contact within the prior 14 days with someone diagnosed with COVID‐19, or are experiencing any symptoms* associated with COVID‐19, do not come to campus.
  • Follow campus directional signage and other instructional signage.
  • While on campus, wash hands frequently for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer.
  • Notify CMC if you (or your guest) test positive for COVID‐19 within 14 days of being on campus, by emailing covid19@cmc.edu or calling 909‐607‐2301 (or 72301 if calling from an on‐campus phone).

CMC reserves the right to update these protocols from time to time as health conditions change.

*COVID‐19 symptoms may include: cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell.

Protocols for Vendors On CMC’c Campus During COVID-19

In accordance with federal, state and local guidance, CMC has taken steps to reduce the number of people on campus. Visitors and vendors may visit campus only with explicit approval from an authorized CMC representative.

On campus, all visitors and vendors must follow campus‐wide and building‐specific protocols, including:

  • Wear face coverings (completely covering nose and mouth) and job/visit‐appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times
  • Visitors or vendors without PPE, please contact the Human Resources Department to arrange

for appropriate protective equipment for the day of your visit. You will be required to pick it up before proceeding to your campus location.

  • Keep at least six feet of distance between yourself and others
  • If you are ill, have a temperature at or above 99.6 degrees, have been in close contact within the

prior 14 days with someone diagnosed with COVID‐19, or are experiencing any symptoms* associated with COVID‐19, do not come to campus

  • Follow campus directional signage and other instructional signage
  • While on campus, wash hands frequently for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer
  • Frequently clean high‐touch areas and workplace surfaces

Vendors who are on campus for longer than momentary deliveries must submit their COVID‐19 health and safety protocols to CMC’s COVID Compliance Committee and return a signed copy of the attached Vendor COVID‐19 Acknowledgement (by emailing both items to ccostanza@cmc.edu). The Committee will review the protocols to ensure they meet the following minimum standards:

  • Appropriate daily health screenings
  • Agreement to immediately inform CMC if a vendor employee who has visited campus has testedpositive for COVID‐19 (by emailing covid19@cmc.edu or calling 909‐607‐2301; x72301)
  • Such protocols comply with all local, state, and federal public health guidelines and directives
  • Agreement to participate in CMC’s contact tracing protocols if a vendor employee tests positive

Vendors with employees who have a permanent presence on campus must, in addition to the above, also complete CMC’s health and safety training.

Vendors with insufficient protocols will be required to follow CMC’s COVID‐19 health and safety protocols. CMCReturns provides more information on CMC’s COVID‐19 health and safety protocols.

CMC offers COVID‐19 testing to its community members through a third‐party provider who has a clinic on campus. Vendors who need access to COVID‐19 testing due to exposure or because they are symptomatic may contact covid19@cmc.edu or call (909) 607‐2301 (on‐campus ext. 72301) to request a testing appointment, subject to availability. Vendors will arrange for payment directly with CMC’s medical provider.

CMC reserves the right to update these protocols from time to time as health conditions change.

*COVID‐19 symptoms may include: cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell.
