Greetings SOCCCD Employees: 

The holiday season can be busy with events and functions that allow us to come together in celebration. The winter months can also be a time to be more cautious about the spread of viruses and to remain vigilant about maintaining your health and wellness. 

We are experiencing an uptick of positive COVID cases, influenza, and RSV in Orange County and within SOCCCD. If you are experiencing COVID related symptoms, do not report to work. Please refer to pages 14, 20, and 21 of the district’s current Return to Work Guidelines for additional information.

Though masking indoors is entirely voluntary, we recommend that you mask indoors, particularly in dense settings, to lower your own risk of cold, influenza, and COVID and to reduce the odds of you being able to infect others if you are unknowingly infected and asymptomatic.

As a reminder, both Irvine Valley College and Saddleback College have free COVID tests available through the Campus Clinics. Register to gain access to the services.

For additional SOCCCD information and updates related to COVID-19, please visit the district website and for recent updates from the Orange County Health Care Agency, please visit the county link.  

Be well. Stay safe!
