New Contract Tracing Protocols

On Monday, March 14, we introduced a new process for reporting positive COVID-19 cases for students who were on a Los Rios campus or facility within 14 days of their initial positive test collection date.
Any student who was on campus within 14 days of their positive test collection date should submit the online COVID-19 Reporting Form (Appendix C), which collects information about the person's vaccination status, symptoms, and whereabouts on campus. After they submit the online form, it is routed to the appropriate person for contact tracing.
Additionally, any student who has been exposed to COVID-19 (either potentially or via close contact) can use the new interactive COVID Decision Chart to find out how long they should isolate and what their next steps are. You can find both forms at
If you have any questions regarding this new reporting process, contact

Develop Healthy Habits

March is National Nutrition Month, a month-long nutrition education and information campaign focusing on the importance of making informed food choices and developing healthy eating and physical activity habits. This year’s theme is “Celebrate a World of Flavors.”
The United States is experiencing a dramatic increase in obesity rates with 40% of 20 to 39 year-olds qualifying. Physical inactivity and unhealthy dietary habits have the greatest impact on your weight and can significantly impact your future health. Some healthy eating barriers college students have identified are time constraints, unhealthy snacking, the convenience of high-calorie foods, stress, the higher price of healthy foods, and ease of accessibility to junk food. 
Here are some quick tips to get you started on a healthier path:
  • Plan your meals and snacks for the week
  • Carry a water bottle with you wherever you go
  • Check out menus online in advance so you can make more healthful food and drink choices when away from home
  • Try new flavors and foods from around the world
  • Park farther out to get more steps in
  • Catch up with a friend or family member over a walk
