Returning to Campus

Río Hondo College COVID-19 App

Río Hondo College partnered with Ready Education to provide a simple solution for students to return safely to campus. The app is designed to support daily COVID-19 symptoms pre-screening and close contact exposure follow-up. Any student coming to campus for in-person classes or services is required to complete a daily health screening for COVID-19 symptoms prior to entering the campus. You can get started with two simple steps. Take a moment to complete the following instructions.

Step 1: Download and install the Rio Hondo App to your phone:

Step 2: Log into the app with your RHC username and password. Make sure notifications are enabled in the app by clicking the bell-shaped icon at the bottom of the screen and then the preferences icon at the top right.

Daily Pre-Screening
Each time you come to campus, you will be required to complete a daily pre-screening survey. Complete this survey to inform us of any symptoms you may have before accessing campus for the day. Depending on your responses, you will either be cleared to come to campus, or you will be restricted. If restricted, you will be given further instructions on how to have your pass updated and safely re-enter campus. When you receive a green pass, you are cleared to enter campus for any in-person courses and services.

If you do not have a smartphone, you can get a link to fill out the At Home Pre-Screening form on a computer by contacting: covid-response@riohondo.edu

View Campus Pass

You are always able to view your current campus pass which determines your access level to campus as well as any action items that may be required from you in order to enter campus safely. If you are on campus, staff may request to see your access level. Those without proper access levels will be asked to the pre-screening survey or requested to leave the campus.

Vaccination Form

Visit the Student Vaccination Requirements website to inform us of your current vaccination status, if you are fully vaccinated, or have any changes in your vaccination status, and upload supporting documentation. Vaccine cards will be reviewed within 48 hours and a decision will be made to accept or return for corrections based on the information provided. Students who have already submitted proof of vaccination do not need to resubmit proof vaccination cards.

Exemption Form

Visit the Student Vaccination Requirements website to submit an exemption or appeal for exemption, this will be reviewed within 48 hours and a decision will be made to accept or deny your exemption based on the information provided. Students who have already submitted an exemption request do not need to resubmit.

Building Room Check-In / Contact Exposure

As you move around the campus, you will be required to check in to buildings and rooms by scanning QR codes posted on doors and walls as you enter. This allows us to inform students in close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19. They look like the example below.

Check-in by clicking the box with the line through it at the top left of the app and scanning the QR code in the room. DO NOT SCAN THE CODE WITH YOUR PHONE’S CAMERA APP. THEY MUST BE SCANNED IN THE RIO HONDO APP TO CHECK-IN PROPERLY.

Be sure to look for and scan QR codes at all building entrances and service offices. In the case of COVID-19 exposure, this will help us to contact the people who have also been in those areas.

If you are not cleared to come to campus, be sure to contact your instructor.

REMEMBER:  COMPLETE THE PRE-SCREENING SURVEY PRIOR TO COMING TO CAMPUS AND SCAN QR CODES AS YOU MOVE ABOUT THE CAMPUS.
