A Safe Return to Campus

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Moreno Valley College transitioned all instruction online. As this impacted programs and classes with in-person skills, third party accreditation and licensing requirements, MVC developed a Safe Reopening Plan to address needed safety and policy changes to courses requiring lab/clinical instruction.

College Safe Reopening Reports and Resources

Requirements to Come to Campus

The MVC campus is closed to the general public. For students attending classes or employees working on-site, you MUST complete a daily COVID-19 symptom self-assessment before coming to campus. You will be required to provide a receipt of a clear self-assessment before entering a classroom or workplace.

Complete the symptom checker through the RAVE Guardian mobile app or online through your student/employee email.

Report Positive Test, Symptoms or Contact

Riverside Community College District (the District) is committed to protecting the health and safety of faculty, staff, students, and visitors. During the pandemic, timely reporting is one of the keys to prevent further spread of COVID-19. All employees and students are required to immediately report if they have tested positive for COVID-19, experience COVID-19 symptoms, or have been identified as a close contact of an infected person.

For Students:

Students must report any positive test/diagnosis of COVID-19, COVID-19 exposure, or potential COVID-19 symptoms to their college Student Health Services department. Your contact is Christopher Bass, Dean, Student Services at Chris.Bass@mvc.edu

For Employees:

Employees must report any positive test/diagnosis of COVID-19, COVID-19 exposure, and/or potential COVID-19 symptoms to Risk Management by using the online reporting form (preferred method), email covidreporting@rccd.edu, or by calling the COVID-19 hotline (951)-222-8662.

Safe Return Principles

1. Safety of students, personnel, and our communities

  • Incorporate all safety guidance available for higher education from the CDC, CAL-OSHA, CA Department of Public Health, Riverside County Department of Public Health
  • Ensure availability of required PPE for all students and personnel
  • Symptom Checker is required for all personnel and students participating in on-campus instruction or activities
  • Processes for reporting personnel and student symptom checker results, COVID exposure, or illness exist, clear, and published.
  • Written risk acknowledgement form for personnel and students (students need to be aware that on-campus classes may be temporarily suspended/shifted online/cancelled in the event of an outbreak)
  • Written criteria for suspending or cancelling instruction in the event of a possible exposure or outbreak

2. Student need for on-campus in-person instruction (Access, Equity, Success, and Need)

  • Collect and analyze data through student surveys and feedback to determine the scope of the need for on-campus instruction
  • Address additional equity gaps, completion barriers, or other burdens that have been created for students due to shifting instruction online
  • Recommend the development of Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 schedules separately
  • Summer 2021 to be similar to Spring 2021 schedule with focus on critical infrastructure, lab, studio arts, and performing arts programs on-campus or hybrid schedules (partially face-to-face and partially online)
  • Fall 2021 schedule without restrictions to disciplines, though distancing, PPE, and capacity restriction may limit the face-to-face and hybrid sections to no more than 20%-30% of all sections

3. Instructional considerations

  • Identify lab, activity, and performance courses that are particularly difficult to teach online
  • Identify those courses that may be difficult to teach in-person with safety restrictions (6-ft distancing, facemask, and other requirements)
  • Ensure academic integrity regardless of instructional modality
  • Create a balance in face-to-face, hybrid, fully online synchronous, and fully online asynchronous instruction while COVID restrictions continue

4. Resources

  • Establish clear process for assessing the viability, safety, and capacity for indoor and outdoor instruction
    • Facility limitations/considerations may be different college to college and at off-site instructional locations
    • Clear on-campus course/sections request and approval process beginning at the discipline/department level
    • Establish clear facilities limits (capacities for all spaces) at each College
  • Determine saturation plan for facilities, parking, and services
  • Determine budget/cost limitations or restrictions due to lowered caps
  • Determine the availability of faculty and staff with sensitivity for at risk populations and privacy requirements
  • Determine equipment, supply, and PPE availability necessary for safe instruction
    • Higher Level of PPE required for Health and Public Safety Programs.
