Bristol Community College is dedicated to keeping all of our students, faculty, staff
and community members safe. The Bristol Together plan was created to keep our college
community safe during the pandemic. Although COVID-19 is not as prevalent as it had
once been it is important that we continue to monitor our community and our college
locations. Here is some helpful information. Also, visit this link for Student Resources.
What to do if you have COVID-19 symptoms?
COVID-19 should be treated like any other communicable illness. Do not come to campus if you have any signs or symptoms.
Keeping the college community safe should be the priority of everyone who is visiting any of our college locations. If you test positive for COVID-19, please follow the guidance below.

COVID-19 Vaccination policy
As of May 18, 2023, the COVID-19 vaccine policy for students and employees expired. In general, there is no longer a COVID-19 vaccination policy. Some specific groups of students and employees may be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of their clinical or external placements. Click for more information.
Wearing masks or face coverings indoors at any Bristol Community College location is dependent on the daily level of new COVID-19 cases in our area. See below for more information.
Know your Color!
Please see the graph below as a visual guide and check this location for updates on whether a mask is required or not.

When the positive case count drops to seven consecutive days that average below our threshold of 135 cases or fewer per day, we drop the requirement of using masks on campus back to recommended. If cases climb back to an average of 135 cases a day, we will shift to requiring masks. Free masks are available at the entrances of most Bristol Community College buildings.
