As we reach the midpoint of the fall semester, Pomona College students, faculty and staff continue to work together to protect our community through vaccination, masks and testing.
Our first line of defense is vaccination. Today, more than 95 percent of our students, faculty and staff members are fully vaccinated.
Masks are an additional line of defense. Under Los Angeles County’s public health rules, face masks must be worn in indoor public spaces, including in classrooms. They may be also required in certain outdoor events.
Testing for COVID-19 is another important part of the plan. The College is testing the small number of unvaccinated students twice per week and vaccinated students once per week. For faculty and staff, the small number of unvaccinated individuals also are tested twice weekly, and vaccinated faculty and staff have the option of being routinely tested or tested upon request.
