CBD College COVID-19 Update as of 7/07/2020
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) provides updated information about COVID-19 as it becomes available. Visit the CDC website.
From the desk of Alan Heshel, CBD College President:
I am happy to announce that we are commencing phase one of our return to lab studies for the Surgical Technology, Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Physical Therapist Assistant programs effective Monday, July 13th, 2020.
This first phase is limited to essential functions only. Students and staff will be permitted back on campus to conduct skills lab training for the above-mentioned programs where completion of such lab work is needed to progress to the next phase of their program.
For the time being, all other coursework and operations will remain in a remote/online status.
As of the date, CBD’s campus remains closed. Students and staff will only be permitted back to campus for the limited purpose of conducting individual and small group skills lab training. Such limited access to the campus is permissible under Section 16 of the Los Angeles County Health Officer’s Order, which permits individuals to train for healthcare operations, and under Section 5(vii)(k) of the City of Los Angeles Safer LA Order, which permits educational institutions to perform essential functions so long as social distancing is maintained.
Unfortunately, only students that are scheduled to be attending lab sessions will be permitted on campus. All other school functions will remain fully operational in an online format.
Safety and well-being of our students is paramount to our organization. We have created a comprehensive return to campus risk assessment and safety protocol. Those of you that will commence their lab work on Monday, July 13th will be receiving safety instructions tomorrow.
If you are one of the students that do not receive an invitation to start the lab studies, please do not feel discouraged. You will be advised of the time frame for your return shortly.
Also, at this time I am very proud to share with you that this institution has officially started its inaugural class of Bachelor of Health Science Management degree program. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone that made this accomplishment possible.
Lastly, I would like to share with you that our faculty and staff are very proud of the way the student body responded to the crisis related to the pandemic. You all must be congratulated on your perseverance and dedication!
Wishing you and your families health, safety, and prosperity.
