Dear Student,

LA Valley College now has a convenient mobile LAVC SAFE App that allows you to take the Covid-19 Self Assessment Form the next time you come to campus.

Prior to coming for your in-person class, just complete the online Covid-19 Assessment Form on the app. You'll get an electronic badge that you can show at the security checkpoint.

Download the LAVC SAFE App today! For more information, please read the LAVC SAFE App flyer [PDF].
