Throughout the pandemic, we have continuously reviewed our safety practices and requirements, making adjustments to align with recommendations from the CDC, the California Department of Public Health and the Sonoma County Department of Health Services. In September 2021, the Board of Trustees passed Resolution 21-21, which implemented a vaccine requirement beginning January 1, 2022, in order to “flatten the curve” by reducing rates of severe cases of COVID-19.
As the pandemic now moves towards an endemic phase, current health guidelines no longer recommend vaccine requirements and instead urge that individuals continue to make responsible personal health decisions including masking when appropriate, getting booster shots when eligible and remaining home when sick. In line with these recommendations, the Board of Trustees voted on Tuesday, Nov. 8 to rescind the district’s vaccination requirement as of May 28, 2023, the day following SRJC’s graduation ceremony. Please note that the full vaccine requirement will remain in place until that time.
As of May 28, 2023, employees, students and visitors will no longer have to show proof of vaccination in order to access district sites or participate in on-site activities, but will still be required to complete symptom self-checks before entering any district campus or site.
Additionally, SRJC continues to offer vaccinations, boosters and COVID-19 testing to all employees and students and encourages everyone to take advantage of these important services. For more information, please visit the links below.
