Santa Rosa Junior College President Dr. Frank Chong postponed the reopening of in-person services until at least Feb. 14, except student study spaces, the SRJC bookstore and Student Health Services, due to the surge of Omicron infections in Sonoma County. 

In an email sent to students and faculty, Dr. Chong said he and his staff have been receiving updates and recommendations from Sonoma County health officials and their decision was in favor of student safety. 

In person services that will be closed include the SRJC libraries, tutorial centers and computer labs. Library curbside pick-up services are still available. Online services are still available, and students can also reach out to the Welcome & Connect Center for assistance accessing these services. 

Student study spaces are open at the Santa Rosa campus Doyle Library tutorial center Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and the Petaluma campus 600 Call Building Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

The SRJC bookstore will continue to provide curbside pick-up services, and is open with limited capacity for students who have received a wristband from a Safety Monitor station.

Student Health Services will also remain open with COVID-19 testing, vaccinations and other services available. 

In his email, Dr. Chong said that on top of the vaccine mandate, SRJC encourages students and faculty to get COVID-19 booster shots and tests at student health services. To make an appointment, call 707-527-4445. Information on COVID-19 testing is available from the websites COVID-19 testing for employees, COVID-19 testing for students and SRJC COVID-19 website.
