Re: New COVID-19 Case Reported to Caltech
Over the weekend, 17 members of the Caltech community reported positive COVID-19 test results to Student Wellness Services (SWS). They include:
- 5 graduate students (3 living on campus)
- 2 undergraduate students (neither living on campus)
- 10 employees (one living on campus)
* During summer term, students who are visiting researchers are classified as employees and may live in on-campus housing.
There currently are 9 individuals isolating in spaces set aside in Caltech housing.
The safety and security of Caltech's students, staff, and faculty is a priority. As such, all members of the Caltech community are expected to:
- Wear a high-quality mask (N95, KN95, KF94, or surgical mask) in all indoor locations on campus.
- Adhere to the Institute's vaccination policies.
- Notify SWS immediately if you are ill, have had a positive test for COVID-19, or have been exposed to anyone with a positive test for COVID-19.
- Stay home if you are ill, have a fever, or have otherwise been instructed to quarantine or isolate.
- Regularly wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
We also encourage everyone reporting on-site to participate and enroll in Caltech's surveillance testing program.
