COVID-19
Campus Update:
Summer 2022

CMC will report new positive COVID-19 cases identified on campus week-by-week, refreshed on this page every Monday.  The COVID Compliance Committee will send timely messages if pertinent information warrants campus-wide communication. The Committee monitors evolving Public Health guidance as relevant to the College and makes recommendations to the President’s Executive Cabinet.

COVID-19 Case Management

CMC will report new positive COVID-19 cases identified on campus week-by-week, refreshed on this page every Monday. Over the period of May 9 through 15, the College identified 13 new cases.

Summer Clinic Hours and Offerings

CMC students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to contact our onsite COVID services clinic at covid19@cmc.edu or (909) 607‐2301 with any COVID-19-related symptoms, questions, or concerns.

Diagnostic testing for CMC students, faculty, and staff is available at the COVID Services Clinic on the Children’s School campus (654 E. Sixth Street) with the following hours of operation: Monday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Diagnostic testing is only for individuals who are experiencing symptoms. If you are symptomatic, you should reach out to clinic staff to schedule a testing appointment at covid19@cmc.edu (preferred) or (909) 607‐2301. As always, this testing is available at no cost to CMC students and employees.

Family and/or household members of CMC students and employees can also access COVID testing through the clinic, for a fee of $70/test.

International Travel

If you travel abroad this summer and you become ill while outside the United States, it is critical that you test for COVID-19. The CDC requires proof of a negative test (or documentation of recovery) for all passengers boarding a flight to the U.S. from a foreign country. If you test positive while abroad, please share your test result with HHB; they can provide an exemption letter for reentry and also help you to navigate airline requirements for flying back. The U.S. Department of Transportation also details reentry requirements here.

Looking Forward

We are optimistic that the pandemic outlook will continue to improve. We will only reinstate requirements such as mandatory testing and indoor masking if public health conditions so warrant. We hope that the worst is behind us, but we remain mindful that COVID-19 is stubbornly persistent and always has the potential to reemerge when mitigation measures are relaxed. We therefore urge your continued vigilance respecting not only your own health, but that of the community around you. Please continue to consult Public Health dashboards and other tools to stay informed about transmission rates and other metrics in your area:

  • Los Angeles County’s dashboard can be accessed here.
  • The CDC’s community levels tool (by County) can be accessed here.

This has been a year of incredible teamwork and community support.  We are grateful to each of you for your ongoing commitment to the health and well-being of our entire community, and wish you an enjoyable, healthy, and safe summer.

Sincerely,

CMC COVID Compliance Committee
