CIIS has been following CDC guidelines and attending the regular SF Health Department briefings about Covid-19 to be sure we are taking all recommended actions to provide a safe and healthy campus environment for everyone. As of September 15, 2021, we are requiring proof of vaccination to enter our buildings. While San Francisco and CIIS have both done an excellent job keeping transmission rates low, with the variants in the virus and increased ease of transmission with variants, we feel we must take this step. We joined with over 500 other institutions locally and nationally requiring full vaccination to enter CIIS buildings at both our Mission Street and Arkansas Street campuses since September 15, 2021.
