Campus Closed to Students Until Further Notice

Dear Contra Costa Community College District Students,

In response to the emergency declarations from the State of California and Contra Costa County, the Contra Costa Community College District (District) and its colleges – Contra Costa College, Diablo Valley College-Pleasant Hill and San Ramon Campus, and Los Medanos College Pittsburg Campus and Brentwood Center – have suspended all face-to-face classes and face-to-face student interactions beginning Monday, March 16, 2020. All campus locations will be closed to students to minimize the spread of the coronavirus until further notice.

These actions will allow administrators, faculty, and staff to develop and implement transition plans for a remote format delivery of classes and student support services. Beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020, the colleges will start the process to deliver classes and student support services remotely.    

Your professors will be reaching out to you in the next few days via your Insite email and/or Canvas to provide further guidance. Please be sure to check your college email account often for any updates, and contact your professor if you do not hear anything by Tuesday, March 17, 5:00 p.m..  If you have questions related to student services (i.e. Financial Aid, Admissions, and/or DSS/DSPS), please email the appropriate office. Contact information can be found on your college website.

As of today, March 15, 2020, we continue to have zero confirmed cases of students or employees with the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Contra Costa Community College District. However, the rapidly changing community dynamics, particularly over the past 24 hours, and the lack of adequate testing to verify our communities’ health status, have made it clear that we must take proactive steps to ensure the health of students and employees.

We will continue to provide regular updates, including updated frequently asked questions, on the District Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates website.
