The Board of Trustees'
Resolution No. 07-22/23
(approved on September 8, 2022) has ended the mandates for masking. While the trustees have removed this requirement, masks are still highly recommended while indoors at District and college facilities. 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.
NO MASKS OR VACCINE VERIFICATION REQUIRED
Students, employees and visitors are no longer required to verify vaccinations in the Cleared4 System. The "blue pass" from the Cleared4 System that was required previously has been discontinued.
COVID-19 Testing will be available to students, staff and visitors on specified days and locations at the District offices and each college.
The District is currently providing onsite Saliva PCR tests for employees and students as follows:
Norco College – West End Quad W7
Moreno Valley College – Admin Annex
CAADO – 3rd Floor Conference Rooms
Riverside City College – Bradshaw Heritage Room
Thursdays: 8 am - 12 pm
Please Note: Do not eat or drink an hour before giving a sample; water is OK to 30 minutes before the test.
