Please see Pitzer’s Face Coverings and Social Distancing Guidelines (updated July 2, 2021).
Fully Vaccinated: Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear face coverings outdoors. In keeping with recommendations the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced at the end of June, vaccinated employees are required to wear face coverings indoors unless an individual is alone in a room, eating or drinking (while maintaining at least six feet distance from others), or cannot feasibly perform a task with a face covering on (in which case the face covering may be removed for the duration of that task).
If you are fully vaccinated and would like to continue wearing your mask in any setting, please feel free to do so. The College will continue to supply face coverings to all employees regardless of vaccination status at no cost.
Non-Vaccinated: Non-vaccinated individuals are required to wear face coverings outdoors when physical distancing of at least six feet cannot be maintained. “Non-vaccinated” includes employees who have yet to provide Pitzer with proof of full vaccination status or whose vaccination has not been verified by Hamilton Health Box, which runs Pitzer’s on-site clinic for COVID-19 testing and screening. Non-vaccinated employees are also required to participate in COVID-19 testing once or twice a week, depending on their work schedule. Please see the Faculty and Staff Testing Policy.
COVID-19 testing is not an alternative to face coverings.
Those who are required to wear a face covering but cannot do so because of a medical or mental health condition or disability, or who are hearing-impaired or communicating with a hearing-impaired person, must wear an effective, non-restrictive alternative (such as a face shield with a drape on the bottom) if the individual’s condition/disability permits it.
