Masks No Longer Required in Classrooms and Labs


We remain vigilant and committed to our twin north stars of maintaining the campus community's health and safety while ensuring our students' success as we continue to evaluate the impact of COVID-19. We also continue to rely on data and safety guidelines from Los Angeles County Public Health (LACPH) to align best practices to keep our community safe.

Over the past month, LACPH has reported that daily positivity rates, deaths, and hospitalizations have been trending downward. Based on this information, and in keeping with best practices from LACPH, the campus will relax its face coverings requirement in all classrooms and labs, effective March 1, 2023. The Student Health Center will continue to require face coverings.

While face coverings will no longer be required in classrooms and labs, you are encouraged to use them to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Free surgical masks are available throughout campus in mask dispensers, mainly located by first or second floor elevators or in entryways where elevators are not present.

Welcome, Faculty!
