Updated: August 15, 2022

For the Fall 2022 semester, these are our most recent COVID-19 safety updates: 

  • Masks continue to be strongly encouraged in indoor settings, but are not required (CDC guidelines recommend surgical or N/KN-95 masks)
  • Please use the Symptom Check by asking yourself the three questions  

COVID-19 Testing on Rocklin Campus

Sierra College offers a COVID-19 testing center on the Rocklin campus (J Building – Fireside Room).

During the Fall Semester, the testing center is open Monday through Friday. This is a walk-in testing site (no appointments needed).

If you are experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms you should get tested at the COVID-19 testing center before reporting to your in-person classroom. Generally, results are available in approximately 30 minutes or less, depending on the number of individuals testing and the results are emailed directly to you. 

  • Students and staff at the Nevada County Campus can request at-home COVID-19 test kits. Please contact Cathy Callas at (530) 274-5317 to arrange for pick-up.
  • Students and staff at the Tahoe-Truckee campus can request at-home COVID-19 test kits. Please contact Mariana Jimenez at (530) 550-2225 to arrange for pick-up.
