Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, things may look a little different than your last visit to the campus. The college's top priority is the safety of our students, faculty, staff, and our community members. As such the college has established the following rules:

What to expect when you come to the CalWORKs office:

  • For your safety and care of your children, we are limited in the capacity of foot traffic in the office. Therefore, children, family, and friends will not be allowed to accompany you to your appointments. 
  • All students are required to complete a symptom questionnaires and get their temperature checked at a Temperature Screening Kiosk located throughout campus. To help you get through the lines more quickly, you may answer your symptom questionnaire prior to arriving on campus through your MyCerritos portal.
  • All students and employees vaccinated or not must always wear a face mask covering their nose and mouth when they are on campus, including hallways, restrooms, etc.
  • All students and employees must maintain 6 ft of physical distancing while indoors or outdoors on campus.
  • We are reminding everyone to wash their hands and use hand sanitizers to prevent the spread of germs. Hand sanitizers are available in all buildings and offices.
  • For your convenience, Student Health Services offers COVID testing and the Moderna Vaccine by appointment only: (562) 860-2451 Ext. 2321 (press option 3)
