Orange Tier Move Increases Access to Services and Resources

April 7, 2021

Dear SMC Community,

We are excited to see that Contra Costa County has now moved to the Orange Tier as of Wednesday, April 7.  This means that we will see increased access to services and resources on campus.  

Here are the key changes with the Orange Tier:

The Recreation Center is open at 25% capacity to all students;

Dryden Student Commons is open to on and off-campus students;

Sunday Student Mass is open to all students;

GaelPantry is open to all students and is moving back to Soda Center;

Outdoor Informal Social Gatherings are open to all students;

The Library will open to all students at 25% capacity on Thursday, April 8;

The Museum of Art will open to all students; check their website for days and hours;

Events are permitted for residential students and off-campus students with room capacity modifications.

For additional information on outdoor courts and other updates for the Orange Tier, check the Campus Services Status page.

Please continue to follow the health protocols with your daily health screening, wear a facial covering and keep physical distance from those outside of your household. Your actions will get us through to the end of Spring semester by lowering the risk of the spread of illness. 

Thanks for all you continue to do!
