Friday Nurse Notes

October 7, 2022

To Pitzer Staff:

Good afternoon Pitzer Community,

Covid-19 cases are decreasing on campus! Please continue to test yourselves as needed, as surveillance testing can help everyone on campus better understand our community Covid levels. This week, I will touch briefly on social and personal Covid accountability.

  • Wearing a well fitted mask is recommended indoors. This recommendation means something different to everyone. Individualized care and social accountability are pertinent to help maintain the health and well-being of Pitzer’s Community.
  • This means that everyone’s social comfort level is different regarding social gatherings, masks, and Covid protocols.  Social awareness is useful to determining what safety measures should be personally followed. For example, if you are going to large social gathering indoors, it would be helpful to test yourself before the gathering and/or wear a mask. If you going to see an individual that is high risk, it would be helpful to test yourself beforehand and/or wear a mask.
  • You always have the right to mask up. N95 and KN95 offer the most protection. When wearing a mask or respirator (for example, N95), it is most important to choose one that you can wear correctly, that fits closely to your face over your mouth and nose, that provides good protection, and that is comfortable for you. It is important that as a community, we are mindful of others health and safety and respect other choices.
