Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information for the Pomona College Community

Updated April 14, 2021

With the COVID-19 situation continuing to improve here in Los Angeles County, we are writing to provide an update on plans for the months ahead, including a limited campus population in summer and the full return of students for fall semester

As we move forward, the staff members who have not yet returned from full or partial furloughs will be brought back to work in a phased return starting in early June, with all employees back by July 1. We are grateful for the patience and commitment of these community members during this extraordinary crisis. Employees with questions should reach out to their supervisor or the Human Resources Office.

While most summer research and work opportunities will be remote, we will have a limited population of students living and/or working on campus for jobs or hands-on research and creative opportunities that are directly sponsored by faculty or by staff supervisors. See more information in the Summer FAQ. All students will need to be vaccinated (with exemptions for documented medical reasons or sincerely held religious beliefs).

To promote safety for all, we urge everyone to get vaccinated for COVID-19 as soon as they are eligible. Student Health Services has been receiving vaccine supplies intermittently at this point and we urge everyone not to wait for that one path to vaccination if they have other options available. In coming weeks, students who have been vaccinated will be asked to start uploading their vaccination record into The Claremont Colleges’ Student Health Services system. 

For more information, please see the College’s latest update to the community.

L.A. County Department of Public Health announced that starting April 1, individuals age 50-64 will be eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and on April 15, everyone age 16 and older will be eligible.
