Barring a shift in guidance from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, indoor masking will be encouraged but not required on campus at the beginning of the fall semester. We strongly support persons who continue masking in all circumstances, and Pitzer will continue to make masks available upon request.
However, specific offices, classrooms, programs, and individuals will be able to determine the masking policies for their spaces on campus. Community members are expected to cooperate with any such expectations or requirements, including those set forth at sister campuses within The Claremont Colleges.
Also, anyone identified as a close contact with someone who tested positive is required to wear a well-fitting face mask at all times while around others (both indoors and outdoors) for 10 full days after their last contact with the positive case.
Consistent with public health guidance, well-fitting, high-quality medical masks should be worn when required. Masks are available for free in the Office of Student Affairs, Dean of Faculty Office, Facilities, Gold Student Center, Dining Hall, and the Nurse Clinic.
