Vaccinations and Testing

Due to City of Philadelphia mandates, anyone who comes to the College who is not fully vaccinated will be tested before they will be permitted on campus. Masks are required. Starting Oct. 15, all faculty, staff and students must be fully vaccinated. Please see our College COVID-19 Updates for more information.

Masks Required On Campus for Fall Semester

Due to the recent City of Philadelphia and CDC guideline updates surrounding masking, at this time, Community College of Philadelphia will again require all individuals to wear masks while on our campuses, regardless of vaccination status, through the fall 2021 semester.

Social distancing six feet apart remains in effect, and our reduced capacity measures on campuses this fall semester at approximately 50 percent will allow us to continue with this effort.

The College continues to encourage individuals who can to be vaccinated. Any individual interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine can find a vaccination site near them by visiting the Philadelphia Department of Public Health’s vaccine resource page or Vybe urgent care at 1500 Spring Garden St. is also providing vaccines free of charge.
