March 10, 2020: Update for Seattle Community Colleges

South Seattle College’s main campus has transitioned to remote operations starting Tuesday, March 10 due to a confirmed case of COVID-19. No employees were identified as exposed or potentially exposed. The campus will keep this status through Winter Quarter (March 25). During this time, the main campus in West Seattle will be closed. Students will continue with online instruction.

Through our union’s advocacy, employees and supervisors will be working together to identify alternative methods of working, and this includes trainings that can be done online. Most of our members at South Seattle main campus will be working remotely and some will be provided opportunities to work on campus and receive assignment pay. Those remaining on campus have received appropriate protective personal equipment and training based on public health guidelines.
