New On-Campus Guidelines

  • Face coverings are required for vaccinated students.
  • Temperature checks and wellness screening are no longer required. All campus visitors must self-assess for COVID-19 symptoms and stay home if symptomatic.
  • To minimize gatherings, students should stay in the lab or on the floor for the entire duration of their session.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Come prepared with a water bottle. Water fountains may not be available.

Positive Case and Close Contact Reporting

  • If you are COVID-19 positive or had close contact with a positive case, do not come to class. Close contact is being within 6 feet of a positive or suspected case for at least 15 minutes. Notify NOCE by calling StarHelp at 714.808.4679 or
  • Complete a Student COVID-19 Questionnaire. A manager from your NOCE program will contact you for more information to see if self-quarantine is required.
  • If self-quarantine is required (you are symptomatic or unvaccinated), you may return to campus if the following conditions are met:
    • Fever-free (of 100.4 or higher) for 24 hours and
    • Symptoms improved and
    • At least 10 days have passed since the onset or
    • At least 10 days have passed after positive contact without symptoms.
