FRC updates face mask protocols to meet new state guidelines

California will change face covering guidance from “required” to “highly recommended” for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, beginning March 1.

Feather River College President Kevin Trutna said college officials met with Plumas County Public Health Officer Dr. Mark Satterfield and decided how FRC will implement the updated CDPH recommendations.

“Dr. Satterfield was very complimentary of FRC’s efforts, including the comprehensive testing protocol that allows FRC and his office to identify early indicators of transmission on campus and in the community,” Trutna said.

In summary:

  • Face coverings are highly recommended for all persons
  • FRC will continue to provide face coverings at entrances to buildings, classrooms, and offices
  • Face coverings will no longer be required indoors, regardless of vaccination status
  • There is no change to the weekly testing requirement for unvaccinated individuals
  • There is no change to the vaccination incentive to employees or students
  • Anyone may utilize the voluntary testing if they so choose

 

Exceptions to the updated face coverings recommendations will be:

  1. a) Child Development Center will follow K-12 requirements and continue to require face coverings until further notice
  2. b) Activities listed by CDPH such as travel, transportation, and health care facilities continue to require face coverings
  3. c) CCCAA guidance remains in place until they change requirements for student-athletes
