Vaccination Mandate for Student Athletes
KCC FACULTY & STAFF:
Based on the new CDC COVID updates, we have created a new response guide that you can refer to for COVID exposure protocols https://inside.kingsborough.edu/response/. Please continue to contact the KCC COVID Response team with all updates - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Central Office updates the CUNY COVID-19 SafetyTracker with the latest safety metrics from all CUNY campuses every Tuesday. That information is readily available on the CUNY site: https://www.cuny.edu/coronavirus/
Due to the current rate of the coronavirus transmission, our temporary mask mandate continues. This mandate is subject to modification based on changing vaccination statistics and coronavirus transmission rates. For the time being, everyone, regardless of vaccination status, must:
All faculty and staff members who have not provided proof of vaccination in CUNYfirst or who chose not to disclose their vaccination status need to enroll in CUNY’s testing program and should have received an email with a link from Cleared4 to enroll. All faculty and staff members who have not provided proof of vaccination in CUNYfirst or who chose not to disclose their vaccination status need to enroll in CUNY’s testing program and should have received an email with a link to enroll.

Dear CUNY Community,
As part of the University’s multi-pronged strategy to monitor and mitigate the spread of COVID-19, CUNY is launching a random testing program for vaccinated employees and students accessing CUNY facilities.
Starting this week, a number of randomly selected, vaccinated individuals across the University will be contacted each week to be tested for COVID-19. The random testing program complements CUNY’s mandatory weekly testing for employees who have not disclosed their vaccination status and students who obtained a vaccination exemption.
If you are selected in any given week, you will receive an email from email@example.com with instructions to complete your registration and will have to test at a CUNY test site within 7 days (no appointment necessary). Your test result will be available within 48 hours and you will maintain your Access Pass to CUNY facilities while the results are pending. If your test result comes back positive, your Access Pass will be removed and you will be contacted by a Coronavirus Task Force Liaison for guidance.
If you do not show up to be tested within the required 7-day period, you will be contacted by a campus or program representative on next steps. Being tested when you are notified is not optional and is necessary in order to obtain campus-wide results each week and thus help keep everyone safe.
For additional information about the program, visit this FAQ
Thank you in advance for doing your part to continue keeping the CUNY Community safe.

Developed in partnership with the Office of the General Counsel, please see attached the new Visitor Policy that will now govern how anyone who is not a CUNY student,
faculty or staff member (e.g. vendors, contractors, auxiliary employees, event guests,
etc.) may gain access to CUNY facilities.
This access pass was previously provided by Everbridge but, going forward, will be provided by Cleared4.
You must register with Cleared4 to obtain your new CUNY Access Pass. You won't need to upload any information. Your vaccine verification has already been done.
Once you have registered for your Cleared4 pass (also referred to as the CUNY Access Pass, Cleared for CUNY Access Pass or GreenPass), you can delete your Everbridge VaxPass, as it will no longer be accepted as proof of vaccination at CUNY entry points after you register.
For quick entry to KCC and CUNY facilities, show your Cleared4 CUNY Access Pass in one of the following four ways:
See CUNY Access - Cleared4 Guide for Vaccinated CUNY Students, Faculty and Staff in CUNY IT Help for information on setting up and using Cleared4 instead of Everbridge VaxPass. Cleared4 FAQs are available in CUNY IT Help as well.
