COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Resources​

A​s the coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns continue to increase in California, we want to provide our community with new information when appropriate. Our top priority is the health and safety of our students and staff, and we take this responsibility seriously. Aligned with these safety precautions, Norco College is temporarily closed through June 19, 2020


The California Department of Public Health has identified a number of precautions to protect yourself and those around you, including:

  • Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or clean your hands often with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • ​Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing (or an elbow or shoulder if no tissue is available). Discard tissue and wash your hands.
  • Riverside County health officials have issued a public health order to cover your face when outdoors or in public spaces - “The face coverings do not have to be hospital grade but need to cover the nose and mouth. For example, bandanas, fabric masks and neck gaiters are acceptable. Fabric covers and bandanas can be washed and used again.
  • Practice Social distancing – stay home except to leave the house for essential items. Call your health care provider or local public health department first before seeking medical attention.
If you have medical related questions, contact your health care provider or the Riverside County Health department at (951) 358-5107 during business hours or the emergency line at (951) 782-2974. For general questions regarding coronavirus, call 2-1-1. You can also call the CDC hotline at 1-800-CDC-INFO.
