COVID-19 Response and Reopening

COVID-19 Information for Our Community

For Our Community



Is COCC open to the public?

Yes, COCC campuses are open and offering in-person services.

How do I access the COVID-19 testing located on COCC's Bend and Redmond campuses?

COCC is proud to host Curative's free rapid PCR COVID-19 testing clinics on both our Bend and Redmond campuses, made possible through a partnership with the Oregon Health Authority and Deschutes County Health Services. The rapid PCR test is the gold standard of COVID-19 testing, with results typically available in 1-2 hours. Appointments are strongly recommended at both Curative's Bend and Redmond COCC campus testing locations, as walk-ups may not be available during times of high demand.

For an updated list of free COVID-19 testing locations across COCC's district, visit our "Get Tested for COVID-19" resource page.

Does COCC require face masks?

Yes, face masks worn properly over the nose and mouth are required in all indoor public spaces on all COCC campuses. COCC's face mask policy is subject to change, and will be frequently reassessed based on local, state, and national public health recommendations.
