Vaccinations and Testing

Due to City of Philadelphia mandates, anyone who comes to the College who is not fully vaccinated will be tested before they will be permitted on campus. Masks are required. Starting Oct. 15, all faculty, staff and students must be fully vaccinated. Please see our College COVID-19 Updates for more information.

Testing for Unvaccinated Individuals to Begin Sept. 1

COVID-19 Testing Details

Starting Sept. 1, anyone who comes to the College that is not fully vaccinated, or has an approved medical or religious exemption, will be tested before they will be permitted on campus. Employee and student exemption forms are available for download and completion.

Testing for COVID-19 will take place in Room 110 at the Northeast Regional Center and Room 116 at the Northwest Regional Center. The Main Campus testing site will be located in the Winnet Coffeehouse. Anyone not fully vaccinated will need to make an appointment. If you need to be tested, you should register and schedule your appointment before the first time you visit campus. The first time you visit campus, you will need to register here. You will then head to the MyCCP portal to schedule your appointment. Please note: You only need to register the first time you visit campus. For all subsequent visits, you simply need to schedule your testing appointment through MyCCP. 

You will be able to wait for results in a tented area in the courtyard outside of the Coffeehouse. Please allow 15 to 20 minutes to receive your results.

Testing will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Main Campus and the Regional Centers. Please register and schedule your appointment prior to coming on campus once the link is available.

If you are in classes after 5 p.m. or on Saturdays and are not fully vaccinated, you will need to schedule COVID-19 testing appointments at Vybe Urgent Care at 1500 Spring Garden St., or any other Vybe location, prior to your classes. The College asks that you use the 1500 Spring Garden St. location whenever possible. Appointments can be scheduled on Vybe’s website. Appointment slots are opened two weeks in advance.  

You will then need to bring a copy of your negative test results and a photo ID to Public Safety so you can gain access to campus. In order to ensure you will not be billed for the off-campus testing, you should obtain an Authorization Form from Public Safety at the College’s entrances prior to your test. You will need to fill out the form and bring it to Vybe during your appointment. Please note: You will have to bring this form to Vybe each time you visit for testing. Please allow enough time to be tested before your class begins. 

This set of four slides provide a visual representation of the College's vaccination card verification process. Anyone who visits campus must swipe their ID card at a Security desk. If a person's proof of vaccination is found in the database, the individual may enter campus. If it's not found, the individual would need to undergo on-site COVID-19 testing by making an appointment, presenting the unique QR code provided to them and getting tested. If the individual tests negative, they will receive a text notification with their result, and the database would be updated in real-time so the person could enter campus. They would have access to campus for a three-day period. If the individual tests positive, they will still receive a text notification with their result and the database will be updated in real-time, but the individual will need to leave campus.

The slides also outline the College's process for contact tracing as a result of a positive COVID-19 test. In such a case, Human Resources will provide the person with COVID-19 with quarantine instructions and then notify any close contacts of the positive case and provide quarantine instructions to these individuals. Facilities will be notified so they can perform a deep cleaning of impacted areas, and department heads and deans or supervisors will be notified based on if the case presents in a student or employee. HR will continue to be in touch with the student or employee during quarantine. The person will then submit a form to HR prior to their return to campus, and the person would repeat the testing process upon their return to campus.
