Important Update on Campus COVID-19 Cases (12/10/21)

Dear Pomona College Community,

In this final week of classes, we have a cluster of campus COVID-19 cases, with at least some likely tied to a social gathering last weekend. At this point, 11 students have tested positive for COVID-19 this week. We have an unrelated staff positive COVID-19 test result this week as well.

We need everyone to be extra vigilant: wear masks while indoors, follow testing protocols and adhere to all other public health measures. We also urge everyone to get a COVID-19 vaccine booster as soon as you become eligible.

As an additional safety measure, campus social gatherings and student events are canceled through the end of the semester. Please avoid unnecessary trips to our neighboring campuses as well.

Let’s work together to avoid pandemic fatigue and finish this semester in a manner that supports safety for all.

 

Sincerely,

Avis Hinkson
VP for Student Affairs and Dean of Students

VP, COO and Treasurer
