Effective May 22, 2021, in accordance with Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order (GA-36), San Jacinto College made face coverings optional for all students, employees, visitors, and contractors.
If you have not been vaccinated, San Jac asks that you continue to wear a face covering.
Health experts still strongly encourage unvaccinated individuals to wear masks, adhere to social distancing and wash their hands frequently.
- The College continues to provide enhanced cleaning, provide hand sanitizer, and take other measures to discourage the spread of the coronavirus.
- The College no longer requires a daily pre-screening form, a wristband or check-in at any College facility.
- A new form will soon be available on the COVID-19 website that will allow employees and students to voluntarily disclose any instances of coronavirus infection or exposure.
- The majority of the College’s classrooms provide for spacing in excess of three feet between individuals. We are resuming classes at the normal capacity for the summer and fall terms, with the exception of those few rooms which do not meet this threshold.
As always, we continue to work and consult with our local and state health officials in monitoring the conditions and will make any changes to our plan as appropriate. Positioning the College for safe operations during the pandemic was a large undertaking and rolling back those measures will also take time.
