Healthy Return to Campus

At Porterville College, the safety of our students, classified professionals, faculty, and community are our first priority.

All visitors to campus are required to fill out a self-assessment questionnaire each day you are on campus. This can be done through the KCCD App or via the web site (see details below). We ask that you complete this questionnaire prior to visiting the campus if possible.

When you come to campus, you will need to scan QR codes in every area you visit with the KCCD app to check-in and out of your classes and work areas.

Below is detailed information about our Healthy Return to Campus protocols.

As I return to Porterville College, I understand I have a role in the fight against COVID-19. I commit to responsible actions and to being an accountable member of both PC and the Porterville community.

I pledge to uphold this ideal every day by:

  • Following public health guidelines in place to help protect myself and others.
  • Protecting myself and others in high-traffic areas of campus or situations where physical distancing isn’t possible to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
  • Keeping my hands clean and sanitized while on campus, in my community, and at home.
  • Adhering to capacity limits in social situations to prevent high-spread scenarios.
  • Modifying my actions and encouraging others to do the same as guidelines and recommendations adapt over time.
  • Providing accurate and honest information during all screening and contract tracing activities.

By taking the pledge to keep Porterville College in good health, I accept responsibility for myself and my actions and will do my best to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
