Glendora, Calif. (Sept. 9, 2021) – Citrus College students and employees will be required to bevaccinated against COVID‐19 or undergo weekly testing in order to be on campus.

 The college’s board of trustees approved the requirement on Sept. 7 in an effort to protect thecommunity and minimize the potential spread of COVID‐19. It applies to all district buildings andfacilities, including classrooms, offices, libraries, gymnasiums and other indoor settings.

 By Nov. 1, employees and students enrolled in fall on‐campus classes must either provide proof ofvaccination or agree to regular testing and produce proof of negative results. For students enrolled 
in winter or spring on‐campus classes, the requirement will be in effect no later than Jan. 3, 2022.

 The latest safety measures follow a number of practices already in place, including daily self‐
assessments for COVID‐19‐related symptoms and location check‐ins on the CitrusMobile app forstudents and employees who are on campus; mandatory weekly COVID‐19 testing; and the wearing 
of masks when inside any college building.

“At Citrus College, it is our duty and responsibility to provide our students, faculty and staff with a 
safe learning and working environment,” said Dr. Greg Schulz, superintendent/president of Citrus 
College. “By embracing these measures with a focus on safety and equity, we can do our part in 
the fight against COVID‐19.” 

How COVID‐19 safety measures work

Before a student or employee arrives to campus, they are required to complete a health screening 
on the CitrusMobile app ( Located on the 
app’s home screen, the “Daily Pre‐Screening” feature asks users a series of health‐related questions. 
When the answers indicate that a user is healthy, they will be given a green “You are clear!” pass. 
Users who do not receive a green pass may not come to campus.

 Upon arrival, students and employees are also required to scan a QR code to check in before 
entering acampus building. Users do so by tapping the icon in the upper left corner of the app 
and scanning the QR code located at the entrance. Members of the public who would like to enter 
buildings will also have to scan a QR code at building entrances and fill out an online health 
screening form. By checking in, the college will be able to effectively contact trace potential positive 
COVID‐19 cases.

 While inside campus buildings, individuals are required to wear a mask that completely covers 
their nose and mouth and rests securely under their chin. 

 Weekly rapid COVID‐19 tests, which are provided at no cost, are also mandatory. Employee tests 
began in early September and student tests will be required beginning Sept. 13.
“As more students and employees return to campus, we must remain vigilant and continue prioritizing 
the safety of students, faculty and staff,” said Dr. Patricia A. Rasmussen, president of the 
Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees. “Requiring a vaccination or negative test 
to enter campus facilities shows that Citrus College is willing to do what it takes to stop the spread 
of COVID‐19. 

 On behalf of the board, I would like to thank the campus community for following our comprehensive 
health measures.” 

Services available for online students 

The college’s COVID‐19 safety measures are only for students and employees who will be on campus 
during the fall semester. Students taking solely remote courses are not required to be tested or 
use the app to complete a daily screening or check in.
Remote students have access to a handful of resources, which are outlined on the college’s website 
at For example, the Owl Success Hub offers tips on com-
puter‐based learning, studying in the home environment, and managing health and wellness.

You are likely aware ofthe tax benefits that come 
from donating to charityduring your life-time—
donations to charityare tax-deductible. But 
you may be surprisedto learn about the nu-merous benefits that are 
available when you incorporate charitable givinginto your estate plan. 
As with donating to charity during yourlifetime, dedicating a portion of your estate to achari-table cause can reduce the taxable value of 
your estate. You can also receive significant taxsavings by naming your favorite charity as thebeneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other retire-
ment accounts. 
And if you have highly appreciated assets likestock and real estate that you want to sell, youcan even set up a special type of charitable trustthat can not only help you avoid both incomeand estate taxes but also create a lifetime income 
stream for yourself and your family, all whilesupporting your most beloved charitable cause. 
Here are three of the most popular ways tostructure charitable giving into your plan. 
1. Leave Money to Charity in Your Will orRevocable Living TrustOne of the simplest ways to donate to charity inyour estate plan is to name a charity as a bene-
ficiary in either your will or revocable living trust.
Just make certain when you leave money via yourwill or living trust that you use the correct legalname of the charity, as many charities have verysimilar names, and if you aren’t specific, the 
charity may have difficulty accessing the funds. 
In either your will or living trust, you can alsostate the purpose for which you’d like the charityto use the funds, or you can make the donationfor the charity's “general purpose,” meaning the 
charity can use the funds as it sees fit. If youchoose to leave money for a specific purpose,
make sure that the charity can fulfill thatpurpose, or the charity might have to refuse thegift. To this end, if your request is specific, youmay want to contact the charity before makingthe request to see if the organization will be ableto fulfill your objective. 
2. Name A Charity as the Beneficiary of YourRetirement Account 
As with leaving money to charity via your willor living trust, another easy way to incorporatecharitable giving into your estate plan is to namea charity as the beneficiary of all or a per-centageof your tax-deferred retirement accounts (IRA,
401(k), 403(b), etc.). In addition to sup-portinga good cause that’s near and dear to your heart,
donating your retirement account as-sets tocharity comes with some significant tax-saving 
Individuals named as beneficiaries of yourretirement account will have to pay incometaxes on any distributions they receive fromyour retirement account. But since charities aretax-exempt, charitable organizations named as 
beneficiaries will receive the full amount of yourretirement account assets. Additionally, thoughyou need to include the value of the retirementaccount assets as part of the gross value of yourestate, you will receive a tax deduction for thecharitable contribution, which can offset estate 
3. Set Up a Charitable Remainder TrustOne final way to structure charitable giving intoyour estate plan is by creating a special trustknown as a charitable remainder trust (CRT). Ifyou have highly appreciated assets like stock andreal estate you wish to sell, you can use a CRT toavoid income and estate taxes—all while creatinga lifetime income stream for yourself or yourfamily and supporting your favorite charity. 
A CRT is a “split-interest” trust, meaning itprovides financial benefits to both the charityand a non-charitable beneficiary. With CRTs,
the non-charitable beneficiary—you, your child,
spouse, or another heir—receives annual incomefrom the trust, and whatever assets “remain” atthe end of your lifetime (or a fixed period up to20 years), pass to the named charity or charities. 
When you set up a CRT, you name a trustee, 
an income beneficiary, and a charitable benefi-
ciary. The trustee will sell, manage, and investthe trust’s assets to produce income that’s paidto you or another beneficiary. The trustee can beyourself, a charity, another person, or a third-
party entity. 
With the CRT set up, you transfer yourappreciated assets into the trust, and the trusteesells it. Normally, this would generate capital gainstaxes, but instead, you get a charitable deductionfor the donation and face no capital gains when 
the assets are sold. Once the appreciated as-setsare sold, the proceeds (which haven’t been taxed)
are invested to produce income. 
As long as it remains in the trust, the incomeisn’t subject to taxes, so you’re earning even moreon pre-tax dollars. And when the trust assetsfinally pass to the charity, that donation won’t besubject to estate or income taxes. 
You Have OptionsAlthough these three methods for structuringcharitable donations into your estate plan areamong the most popular, there may be otheroptions available. Consult with your trustedestate planning attorney and/or accountant todetermine the best way to achieve your charitableob-jectives while maximizing your tax-savingand other financial benefits.
