Monkeypox Update and Information

August 19, 2022

Dear Pitzer Community,

As we near the start of the fall semester, we want to share information and resources concerning the nationwide outbreak of Monkeypox, which the Biden administration has declared a national public health emergency. Pitzer, in partnership with Student Health Services (SHS) at The Claremont Colleges, is closely monitoring the situation. Pitzer College participates in weekly higher education-specific briefings with public health experts at the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH). 

Please visit Pitzer’s Pathway Forward site for updates and resources, including:

As with the COVID-19 pandemic, we expect public health guidelines and protocols for Monkeypox to continue to evolve. Pitzer will continue working with SHS and the County to help keep the campus community informed and as safe as possible.
