Re: New COVID-19 Cases Reported to Caltech
Since our last update, 6 members of the Caltech community reported a positive COVID-19 test result to Student Wellness Services (SWS):
- 2 employees (not living on campus)
- 4 students (all living on campus)
There are currently 5 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:
- 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.
