Mitigation Measures

Face Coverings & Physical Distancing

The use of face coverings indoors is optional at all BC3 locations. Students, faculty, staff and visitors may choose to wear a face covering at any time.

Free N95 masks are available at many local pharmacies. Procedural masks are available at all BC3 locations.

Acrylic partitions or barriers have been installed in areas that require close interaction to conduct business.

Physical distancing is encouraged, but not required, when in a space that can accommodate six feet between individuals.


Although BC3 does not require the COVID-19 vaccination for students, faculty and staff, vaccination is encouraged. Personal health care decisions should be made through consultation with a medical professional. 

Students and faculty in BC3’s credit and noncredit health care programs who attend clinical experiences at health care facilities may be required by the facilities to be fully vaccinated.

Having received all recommended vaccine doses may exempt you from quarantining if you are identified as a close contact to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Sanitizing & Cleaning

Hand-sanitizing stations are available in hallways and communal areas of all buildings and facilities. Handwashing signage is posted in restrooms to encourage proper hygiene.

Sanitizing wipes are available in classrooms and high-touch areas, such as computer labs, to allow for disinfecting of commonly used spaces and equipment. Classroom kits containing face coverings and gloves for faculty and student use will be available if needed in each classroom.

Custodial shifts, equipment, supplies and procedures will continue to address sanitizing and disinfecting processes.
