Coronavirus & Safe Reopening Information

Important Information:

Our focus is to ensure that students, faculty, staff and all who access our campus will be safe and protected to be able to achieve their educational goals. Our faculty is determined to help our students succeed. If you have additional questions, contact your instructor.

Face masks are no longer required indoors in any Butte College facility. While face masks are no longer required indoors on campus, we support those who choose to wear them. This is, however, a personal choice each of you will make. Please be respectful of one another, masked or unmasked, as we transition to this new phase. 

We have installed wall hand sanitizer at most public restrooms, computer labs and various high-traffic locations.  Custodial staff will be disinfecting restrooms and classrooms.

Please check your Butte College email and this website for regular updates.


If you are a student or staff member who is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have had recent contact with someone who is ill or who has tested positive for COVID-19, please let us know by emailing covidreporting@physicsandmore.net
