Public Health Information
RCCD is closely following information and guidance from federal, state and local public health authorities about COVID-19 and the global spread of the MPX (monkeypox) virus. RCCD campuses are working to ensure their infection prevention and control programs and processes are adapted to address potential outbreaks.
RCCD encourages everyone in its communities to follow recommendations from their physicians and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials for prevention, risk reduction and actions after exposure.
The Board of Trustees'
Resolution No. 07-22/23 (approved on September 8, 2022) has ended the mandate for masking. While the trustees have removed this requirement, masking is still strongly encouraged. Additionally, indoor masking requirements may apply if an outbreak should occur or if directed by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, or the Riverside County Department of Public Health.
