Effective Monday, November 7, 2022, El Camino College will no longer require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for students, employees, or visitors. Read Full Announcement



Beginning Spring semester 2023, and coinciding with updated Los Angeles County Health Department Guidance for Institutes of Higher Education, masks are no longer required, except in the Student Health Center. Individuals may choose to wear a mask; no one can be prevented from wearing a mask to participate in an activity or enter our facilities.

This change replaces the previous requirement regarding wearing masks.

The safety of El Camino College students, staff and faculty is the College’s highest priority. As a result, while not required, the College still recommends wearing a mask.

Note: Masking requirements are subject to change as conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic change.



Effective Monday, November 7, 2022:

  • Daily entry screenings utilizing the World Back to Work app will no longer be required.
  • Obtaining a "Blue Pass" will no longer be required for entry into campus buildings.

However, in adherence to County guidance and Cal/OSHA requirements, El Camino College will continue to implement a process for screening COVID-19 symptoms using signage at the entrances of campus buildings stating that individuals with symptoms and/or a positive COVID-19 test must not enter the premises.
