Quick Notes for the Week of March 21
COVID-19 Vax, Booster and Face Masks Required
You must upload proof of vaccination for COVID-19 before you can register for any on-campus classes. If you are planning to come to campus this spring, you are required to separately provide proof of a COVID-19 booster, if you are eligible for one, before classes begin on Wednesday, April 6. You should upload your booster document by April 1 so it can be verified before the deadline. See instructions at deanza.edu/vax.
The mask requirement remains in effect. You must wear a face mask PROPERLY while indoors – that means covering your mouth AND nose at all times.
Student Health Services is offering free drive-thru PCR testing for students and employees on Wednesdays from 12:30-4:30 p.m. in Parking Lot A. One-time preregistration is required for PCR testing. Visit the Health Services COVID-19 information page for additional details.
