For Immediate Release: 
Friday, March 13, 2020

Irvine Valley College (IVC) is committed to ensuring the safety and good health of all students. Therefore, the Student Support Services programs are taking measures to provide you with information via Zoom, telephone, email, and online. These measures support the recent information I shared with you in an effort to prevent as many students as possible from coming onto campus unnecessarily.

Please note that the Health and Wellness Center will be servicing students with telemedicine and referral services. Reminder, the Health and Wellness Center does NOT test for COVID-19 only the Orange County Health Care Agency does. Please seek medical advice if you develop symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath. IVC’s "ASK A NURSE" hotline is in operation at 949-451-5687.

IVC is actively developing a mechanism through which students, families, and counselors can reach out to us in real-time with questions. We hope to launch this very soon; please stand-by for further information. In the meantime, you may contact the following individuals and departments for further information and/or support:
