COVID-19 Information for Employees
If you are coming to campus for any reason – for a class, a meeting or any other purpose – you must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, for your health and that of others.
You will be required to upload proof that you have received a COVID-19 booster, if you are eligible for one, before coming to campus.
- See the email from Human Resources for instructions on how to do this
- Check the district Human Resources COVID-19 website for more information.
If you have uploaded proof of vaccination or booster for a previous quarter, you don't need to upload it again.
These requirements apply to students, employees and visitors.
Update: Masks Strongly Recommended, May Be Required
Properly worn face masks are strongly recommended on campus and may be required in some offices or by individual instructors in their classrooms, under the policy announced for fall 2022 by the Foothill-De Anza Community College District.
- Your mask must cover your mouth AND nose.
- See the Face Mask Information webpage for more information.
COVID-19 Reporting for Employees
Please use the correct form listed below, so the college can take appropriate steps for the health and safety of everyone on campus. Reports will be treated as confidential. Employee reports will be routed to the district Human Resources office and to the Student Health Services clinician for appropriate health measures.
Students With COVID-19
Instructors or other employees should submit this form if they learn that a student has been on campus and has tested positive for COVID-19, been exposed to a person with COVID-19 or become ill with COVID-related symptoms. Please do not use the Maxient form in MyPortal because it is not designed for this purpose.
Employees should use this form to notify the college and district if they have tested positive for COVID-19, been exposed to a person with COVID-19 or become ill with COVID symptoms – even if they are working remotely. A copy will be routed to the district Human Resources office.
Students who have been on campus should use this form to notify the college when they receive a positive diagnosis or test result for COVID-19.
COVID-19 Testing and Isolation Protocols
De Anza College is following current guidance from county and state health authorities for testing and isolation in cases of positive diagnosis, exposure or symptoms relating to COVID-19. Learn more by visiting the Testing and Isolation Protocols webpage.
