Smoke & Tobacco-Free Campus

As of August 17, 2022, all campuses and facilities of the SMCCCD (including Cañada College, College of San Mateo, Skyline College, and the District Office) will be Smoke and Tobacco-Free. Smoking, the use of smokeless tobacco, e-cigarettes, and unregulated nicotine products like flavored tobacco, including menthol, will be strictly prohibited.


Face Coverings (Masks)

San Mateo County’s current Community Level is HIGH, and face masks are required indoors while in any SMCCCD facility. The exemption of not wearing a mask is only while actively eating or drinking. The masking requirement is effective until further notice and applies to all students, employees, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status. As the San Mateo County Community Level changes, updated information will be provided to students, employees, and visitors. Masks are located at various locations throughout all buildings. To track the San Mateo County’s COVID Community Level, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
