COVID-19 Clinic Information

Monday, March 7, 2022

Thank you to everyone who has been to the clinic in the last few weeks to meet us and get a test! I would like to remind everyone that if you are in high contact with others, please be mindful of your symptoms, and remember that minor symptoms, such as cold symptoms, can be symptoms of COVID-19. 

The testing clinic is in West Hall living room Q222, testing hours are 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Monday/Wednesday and 8 a.m.-12 p.m. and 1-3 p.m. Tuesday/Thursday. Please see testing instructions below for more details.

COVID-19 Reminders

  • All individuals on campus, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a face covering/mask while indoors
    • Pitzer’s COVID policies are to be followed regardless of changes discussed by LA county 
  • If you are up to date on your vaccinations you are not required to test for COVID-19 weekly, however I recommend testing at least once a week if you have high contact with others
  • If you are not up to date on your vaccinations, you are required to test twice a week

Testing Schedule: 

  • Testing is available on campus and is free to all Pitzer employees. Appointments can be made through Healthy Pitzer, detailed instructions can be found below.  
  • If you have recently had a COVID-19 infection, please reach out to [email protected] to discuss your testing schedule, as you may be exempt from PCR testing for 90 days after a positive COVID test. 

COVID-19 BoostersBooster Shots are required for everyone on campus.

Pitzer’s COVID Clinic is offering booster shots Booster shots will be available by appointment only Thursdays 11 a.m.-12 p.m., and 1-2 p.m. Make an appointment here: Pitzer Clinic

Booster shots are available at any vaccine site.  You can make an appointment for your booster using My Turn or find a walk-in vaccination site.  If you are looking for a site close to campus Hendricks Pharmacy in the Claremont Village offers COVID vaccines, click the link to make an appointment. Vons and CVS are also good near-by locations that offer the Booster shot.  

Once you have received the booster, the College asks that you follow the Vaccine and Booster Reporting Instructions to submit proof of your booster. While it is recommended you do this through the Healthy Pitzer portal, other options are available for those that are interested.

Daily Health Screening: The Daily Health Screening is required every day that you come to campus, if you have any symptoms or have had an exposure to a positive case email [email protected] or call (909) 607-2180 before coming to campus.

How to make an appointment:

  • Routine Testing:  Please make an appointment for testing through Healthy Pitzer, after logging in you will see Appointments on the second tab.  The first time that you log into Healthy Pitzer you will be required to sign Pitzer and HHB consent forms, these forms must be completed prior to testing. 
  • Please bring your phone to your appointment and be ready to log into Healthy Pitzer, we will use the barcode found in the top right corner of the homepage for testing. 
  • The test will be a self-administered nasal swab and the process only takes a few minutes. 
  • You will receive your test results directly via text message and/or email 24-48 hours after testing.  

If you have been exposed or have symptoms: 

  • If you have symptoms, please do not make an appointment with Healthy Pitzer, and instead email [email protected] explaining your situation and we will get you scheduled for diagnostic testing.  
  • This is important so that we can determine if you are safe to work on campus and so that we can test symptomatic individuals separately from others to reduce the risk of exposure.  

Testing at an outside facility: 

  • If you would prefer to test off campus or if you need testing on a holiday or weekend, please check LA County testing sites or Kaiser testing sites.  
  • If you need assistance finding or making an appointment, please let us know!
  • If you are getting diagnostic testing at an outside facility for symptoms or an exposure you must get a PCR test, a rapid/antigen test will not clear you to return to campus. 
  • If you get tested an outside facility you can report your test results to [email protected]

Warm Regards,
