Santa Barbara City College is moving most classes online due to the uptick of COVID-19 cases.
Citing the high infection rate in the community, the college says it will conduct classes remotely through Feb. 17 out of the “best interest of SBCC students, employees and the community.”
Classes that require hands-on instruction will still be held in person.
People coming onto campus will be given health screenings and required to show proof of vaccination or an approved exemption. Students and employees are also required to wear an N95 or KN95 mask to enter any SBCC facility. Masks will be available on site.
Starting Jan. 24, students and employees visiting campus will be required to have a recent negative COVID-19 test on file. Testing is available on campus.
In-person classes and services are expected to resume on Feb. 22.
