Photo Gallery : College faces pandemic


A sign that reads ‘Campus Is Closed No Permit Required’ hangs on the ticket kiosk in an empty parking lot at American River College on March 16, 2020. Since the Los Rios Community College closed its campuses, students’ classes are now converted to online until further notice.

The Los Rios Community College District announced on March 12 that the district will postpone face to face classes which results in online classes until further notice. White flyers with big bold red letters read ‘Campus Closed Effective Immediately’ plaster classroom doors at nearly vacant American River College. The announcement went into effect on March 13 and the campus officially closed on March 18.  Here are some snaps of the big effect COVID-19 has already had on the ARC campus.
