News and Events for the week of June 21

Good Monday Morning, 

I hope everyone had a restful three-day weekend. For the first time in our history, our nation celebrated Juneteenth as a federal holiday. This historical date signifies the official end of slavery in the United States. As we celebrate this milestone, it is important to think about what Juneteenth means to us at LACC. It is a time for joy and celebration, but also a reminder that our community must continue to remain focused on advancing social justice and racial equity. Due to the Juneteenth holiday that was celebrated by LACCD on Friday, June 18th, we will be rescheduling special Juneteenth Black Lives Matter Town Hall featuring Dr. Antonio Banks. We will let you know the revised date.  

New COVID-19 Safety Requirements

On Thursday, June 17, Cal OSHA adopted revised Emergency Temporary Standards, which govern COVID-19 safety requirements in California workplaces, including Los Angeles County. The Chancellor has not published updated requirements for the LACCD. I am hoping this comes out very soon.  

Town Hall Tomorrow

I am scheduling a Town Hall for tomorrow at 1:00pm for these and other updates to share with you. The Outlook invitation will go out later this morning with the link. Here are a few of the changes resulting from Cal OSHA’s workplace standards: 

  • The four-tier roadmap of restrictions (purple, red, orange and yellow) on economic activity and public gatherings. Businesses, including movie theaters, theme parks, bars, restaurants, concert venues, shopping mall and museums can resume full capacity indoor operations.  
  • Masks are still required for unvaccinated and partially vaccinated people in indoor public settings and businesses. For unvaccinated people at mass gatherings with an attendance over 5,000, operators must verify that attendees are fully vaccinated or have proof of a recent negative COVID test.  
  • Everyone, including fully vaccinated people, must still wear masks on public transit including airplanes, buses, taxis and in transportation hubs including bus terminals, train stations and subway stations; indoors at K-12 schools and child-care facilities; health care settings; state and local correctional facilities and homeless and emergency shelters.  
  • Summer session courses and services remain primarily operating in a remote environment.  

We will continue to provide updates from the District.

LACC Health Center Now Open

Our Health Center on campus is now open with Wesley Health providing services to our students. Wesley is also an LA County vaccination site at LACC throughout the month of June. Students, faculty, staff and their families can get vaccinated through Wesley. Please let your students know. We will host our last weekend vaccination clinic this Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 7am to 3pm in front of the Student Union Building. Parking for vaccinations is in Lot 4. Vaccinations are free and no appointments are necessary. All three vaccines are available. Wesley is bringing in three mental health specialists in a couple of weeks to help our students reacclimate back to campus. These services should begin the week of July 12th. More details to follow.  

The great work you do every day shows in the success of our students. Thank you for your commitment.

BELIEVE. ACHIEVE. SUCCEED. We are in the process of full recovery from the pandemic…  

Stay well. Get vaccinated.
