Please note, all individuals on the Napa Valley College campuses, including staff, faculty, students, community members, vendors and visitors, will continue to be required to wear face masks when entering any building, whether or not you are vaccinated.
Your health and safety is our top priority, and we will continue to proceed with abundance of caution as the recommendations and guidance around masking and vaccinations continue to change.
Due to the nature of some courses, documentation of full COVID-19 vaccination status is a requirement (by September 13) for all students enrolling in the classes listed here. Students will be required to provide documentation of vaccination status or request an exemption to be enrolled in these courses.
Napa Valley College is regulated by the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal-OSHA, as well as the California Department of Public Health (CDHP) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
On June 17, the Cal-OSHA board adopted revised COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards, and Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order to allow the revisions to take effect immediately. The revisions align with the latest guidance from the California Department of Public Health, based on guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Additionally, the State of California is now offering residents a digital record of their COVID-19 vaccinations that they can use to access businesses or events that require proof they are fully vaccinated. The new tool allows Californians access to vaccination records from the state's immunization registry and includes the same information as the paper cards issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
