Quick Notes for the Week of April 11

COVID-19 Vax, Booster and Face Masks Required

If you are planning to come to campus this spring, you are required to separately provide proof of your COVID-19 vaccination AND booster, if you are eligible for one. 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.

Free PCR Testing on Campus

Now there are two ways you can get a free PCR test for COVID-19 on campus. No appointment is needed but one-time preregistration is required for either option.

  • Mondays from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. – outside the Campus Center near the Student Health Center entrance on the lower level
  • Wednesdays from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. – drive-thru testing available in Parking Lot A

Visit the Health Services COVID-19 information page for additional details.
