Revised Testing Schedule Updated October 8, 2021

Covid-19 Testing Deadline Extended to October 18, 2021


Here is the information that you need to know regarding new LACCD policies about testing and vaccinations.

  1. Biocept and Cleared4 have taken over COVID-19 Testing and Screening operations at LACCD including LACC. This replaces the LACCSafeApp self-check-in process.   
  2. Cleared4 will text and/or email each student and employee with a unique link where you can create a profile in their database.  
  3. Every student who comes to campus for any reason, and every LACCD employee, whether on campus or not on campus, is required to create a profile account and get a baseline test from Biocept by Friday, October 18, 2021.
    • Beginning next week, Biocept will be on campus to conduct COVID-19 testing Wednesdays from 10am to 6:30pm and Thursdays from 10am to 4pm. You can make an appointment to be tested when you check in daily via Cleared4.
  4. Prior to October 18, 2021, all students who plan to be onsite, for any amount of time and for any reason, at any college or District facility and all employees must:   
    • Upload your vaccination information (if vaccinated)  
    • Or submit a medical or religious exemption request that has been approved by the District (please allow 2 days for processing, forms can be found on the District website). If granted an exemption, you must be tested weekly on an LACCD campus or the District Office by Biocept. 
  5. Cleared4 will send a daily reminder to complete the quick self-health check in required daily before coming to campus. If you are having difficulty checking in, please contact covidcolleges@biocept.com.   
  6. If students do not complete the required steps by October 8 or October 18, they must contact the Office of Student Services.   
  7. Only visitors to our campus will continue to use the original district online check in.

We will update you as more information is available. Thank you for helping us all stay safe and healthy at LACC.
