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
  • Wednesday, May 25, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. – drive-thru testing available in Parking Lot A
    • This will be the last day of drive-thru testing before the switch to walk-up testing outside the Campus Center.

Beginning May 30, PCR testing will be available on the same schedule outside the Campus Center, near the Student Health Services entrance on the lower level. Drive-thru testing in Parking Lot A will no longer be offered.

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