COVID 19 Frequently Asked Questions:

What if I receive one dose at home in another country, but still need another dose?

In this case, you would not be fully vaccinated and would either need to receive your second dose (at this time, Pfizer or Moderna may be accessible in Spokane), or you would need to start the vaccination process over again with an available vaccine.

Please see the “Arrival and Quarantine” section for details about when you need to arrive.

If I am not fully vaccinated yet, can I attend my classes?

If you are not fully vaccinated you will need to quarantine upon arrival in Spokane. See the “Arrival and Quarantine” section above. After your quarantine period, and until you are considered fully vaccinated, you may attend your classes in person by wearing a mask and social distancing.

I had COVID 19. Do I need to get the vaccine?

Yes, you still need to get a COVID-19 vaccine even if you’ve already had the virus.
