On March 17, the American River College communications office sent an email to inform the college’s population of the latest status concerning COVID-19 regarding ARC and all Los Rios facilities. As of March 18, all facilities closed and moved to remote operations including classes.

In an email to the Current, Scott Crow, public information officer at ARC, confirmed that most events had been canceled.

“However, a few departments are moving forward with remote events. For example, the Transfer Center is offering virtual appointments with reps from universities,” Crow said. 

This unprecedented turn of events has caused the cancellations of on-campus activities until further notice. This encompasses sporting events, music and theatre performances, the campus Child Development Center, Student Center Hub events, the Beaver Food Pantry, the Health and Wellness Center and its resources. 

Specific details about events cancellations due to COVID-19 have been updated to the ARC website at least until April. It can be found by navigating to the calendar and events section of the Student Life tab. 

Services such as tutoring are still available and have been moved online. For information access, the tutorial center’s web at LRC-Tutorial Center Web Page:
