Expanded in-person service depends on continued positive trends in public health conditions and the reduction and elimination of state and local COVID-19 mitigation measures.

Masks are strongly recommended but not required in all district facilities, regardless of vaccination status. Los Rios strongly supports any student or employee's choice to continue wearing a mask if it makes them more comfortable.
