COVID-19 Safety Policy

COVID-19 Workplace Readiness, Safety and Training Guide (PDF)

CHC values the safety of our staff, students and clients above all else. We believe the best way to ensure their safety throughout the COVID-19 pandemic is to respect reliable science and follow the guidelines of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Santa Clara County Public Health Department, San Mateo County Public Health Department and the California Department of Education. Frequent COVID testing, along with wearing masks, washing hands often, maintaining social distancing and ensuring our facilities are meticulously clean and disinfected are the best ways we can accomplish this. COVID testing is required for staff physically working on our campuses and we encourage our students and clients to test as well. Testing for students and clients is available by appointment at no cost on alternating Mondays at our Palo Alto and San Jose Campuses.

Please contact for additional testing information. In addition, the COVID-19 vaccination is available for all CHC staff because we are a behavioral health facility. CHC strongly encourages all staff to get the COVID-19 vaccination and advise HR of vaccination test dates so we can track the percent of our staff who receive vaccinations.
