Given the winter surge of COVID-19 infections, driven largely by the highly infectious Omicron variant, we are making some important modifications to our public health protocols as we prepare for the start of the semester.
Last week, we had two COVID-19 positive test results among students. However, we have seven COVID-positive results from students so far this week. In Los Angeles County, daily test positivity rates have been ticking up.
We have reached the final weeks in a semester that brought both our first-year and sophomore classes to campus for the first time. Last week we had no COVID-positive test results during the shortened holiday week.
