Can I run on the Bend campus track or trails if I'm not a COCC student or employee?

COCC is currently closed to the general public, and so we ask that those who are not current COCC students or employees refrain from using the Bend campus track and running trails. The College plans to reopen our Bend campus trails, track, and field to the public on Monday, June 14, 2021.

Is COCC requiring the use of masks?

One of COCC's Principles of Community is to Promote a Healthy and Safe Learning Environment. As part of our reopening plans, COCC campuses require face masks in all indoor spaces, as well as outdoor spaces where 6 feet of physical distancing cannot be easily maintained. Accommodations to the face masks requirement are available per Oregon Health Authority (OHA) guidance.
