Indoor Mask Guidance
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we are writing to provide an update on changes to the Yuba Community College District’s mask requirement. As you may be aware, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has announced a number of recent policy changes including an update to the requirement for unvaccinated persons to mask in indoor public settings. The CDPH’s new guidance is a strong recommendation that all persons, regardless of vaccination status, continue to mask while in indoor public settings and businesses. Therefore, effective March 11, 2022, the YCCD mask policy is updated to strongly recommend that all students, employees, and campus visitors wear a mask when in any indoor setting. The update to our policy removes a requirement for students, staff, and faculty to wear a mask indoors although it is encouraged, especially in large group settings. YCCD has implemented numerous safety mitigation efforts to ensure the safety of all students, employees and campus visitors. All other YCCD COVID-19 policies and procedures remain unchanged and faculty, classified staff, students, and visitors should continue to self-screen for illness prior to coming onto any YCCD campus. The District will continue to monitor COVID-19 positivity data, state and local health guidance, and other information and provide updates as they become available. It should also be noted that some programs such as Allied Health, are subject to more rigorous requirements and rules such as those for healthcare settings.
Please check with your local county website for the latest vaccine information. All Californian’s age 12 and older are eligible to be vaccinated. The state’s vaccine information site, with information on how to sign up to be vaccinated is at https://covid19.ca.gov/vaccines/.
Individual county vaccination information can be found at the following sites:

COVID-19 Safety Tips for Faculty
TCSIG and COVID-19 Testing
With the passage of Families First Coronavirus Response Act, Federal Guidelines mandate coverage for COVID-19 testing and states that private health plans, fully-insured and self-insured plans, are now required to provide coverage for COVID-19, which include: Diagnostic testing, cost of provider, urgent care center and emergency room visits (in order to receive testing), and any related medical services.
The coverage provided for testing as noted above, must be at no cost to the consumer. Please note that the current mandate does not require coverage for treatment. Accordingly, Delta Health Systems has removed the member’s share of cost for the above listed services on all TCSIG plans. However, all costs related to the treatment of COVID-19 remain. (see examples below)
Example 1. – Member on HDHP goes into a provider to get tested for COVID-19. The member’s deductible and coinsurance would not apply and testing include office visit and lab work would be covered at 100% no share of cost for the member.
Example 2. – Member on HDHP has received a diagnosis of COVID-19 and is admitted into the hospital for treatment. The member’s deductible and coinsurance would apply and the member would have the same share of cost as they would any other illness.
Please visit https://www.deltahealthsystems.com/Home/Covid19Updates or call (800) 464-7627 or if you have any additional questions regarding the coverage of COVID-19 as it currently applies to Tri-County Schools Insurance Group.
