Dear Campus Community,

As our students have started leaving campus for the fall break, this week’s COVID-19 community update includes data from Saturday, October 2 – Wednesday, October 13, and important reminders.

  • Student Travel Break COVID-19 Guidelines: Thank you to our students for submitting your fall break travel plans and for honoring our Mindful of Each Other Student Travel Break COVID-19 Guidelines, including testing expectations.
  • Pitzer Fall Break Campus Life Events, Activities & Programs: Students staying local during fall break are invited to join in opportunities to engage in community on campus. Program details can be found on Pitzer’s Events Calendar.
  • Weekend COVID-19 Support: Students needing weekend COVID-19 related support or who find themselves needing assistance accessing care, should contact Pitzer’s 24/7 On-call Dean via Campus Safety at 909-607-2000. Our team is here to help you!
  • Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Update: Vaccination requirements applying to indoor portions of bars, lounges, nightclubs, breweries, wineries, and distilleries.
