COVID-19 Safety and Other Key Reminders

The excitement and energy of the Fall 2022 semester is right around the corner. As we prepare to welcome our students and greet one another in person, we want to share important campus reminders regarding COVID-19 precautions. By taking the actions below and working together, we can ensure a safe and enjoyable academic year.


Vaccinations Stay up to Date With Your COVID-19 Vaccinations. To find a vaccination site, visit NYC COVID-19 and Flu Vaccine Finder or call 877-VAX4NYC (877-829-4692). Learn more on how to upload vaccination verification to CUNYfirst.
Cleared4 Activate Your Campus Access Pass on Cleared4. All CUNY students, faculty and staff should follow the instructions on the Cleared4 registration page to obtain a CUNY Access Pass.
Testing Maintain Weekly Testing – For staff, and students with exemptions only. If you are unvaccinated or do not want to disclose, you are required to test weekly for COVID-19 at one of the 19 CUNY sites.
Tested Sick? Get Tested. If you experience symptoms consistent with COVID-19, avoid contact with others and get tested at a public testing site.

  • Guidelines if you test positive for or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of your vaccination status.
  • Guidelines if you are exposed to someone who has COVID-19 (guidelines depend on your vaccination status).
  • Faculty and staff with questions about sick leave, please contact the BMCC Office of Human Resources.
  • Students who are unable to attend class due to contracting COVID-19, please notify your professor.


Testing Comply With Random Testing. If you are chosen for random testing, you will receive an email from with detailed instructions. No appointment is needed for random testing, and you are required to get tested at one of the 19 CUNY sites. The closest site to the BMCC Main Campus is Fiterman Hall – Café External Entrance. Check hours of operation.
Mask Wear a Mask in Public Indoor Settings. We recommend (especially during high levels of transmission) wearing a mask when indoors around others to reduce transmission and risk of infection. Masks are available upon request at various locations throughout campus, including at Public Safety Entrance stations.

In addition to taking COVID-19 precautions, we kindly urge that you remain vigilant and informed about the monkeypox virus. We continue to closely monitor vital public health information and will adjust our actions if needed. As always, our goal is to ensure that all members of our community feel safe and welcome on campus. Please visit the BMCC website and CUNY Health Alert webpage for updates.

Continue to stay safe and healthy.
