Support for Jan. 31 return to campus

Dear Pacificans,

As you know, we are returning to our full in-person instruction and campus operations on Monday. In preparation, we have the following information to assist and support you: As you are aware, we are asking all members of the Pacific community to test at one of our on-campus testing clinics before beginning on-campus instruction and work, and on a weekly basis thereafter. To avoid delays before returning next week, you may test at any Pacific campus testing clinic anytime this week, particularly to avoid potential waits on Monday morning. Our clinics are open six days a week for your convenience. View clinic schedules on the COVID-19 website. We continue to require masks indoors on our campuses. You can pick up surgical masks at the DeRosa University Center, Baun Fitness Center and William Knox Holt Memorial Library and Learning Center on the Stockton Campus and at the Facilities Department on the Sacramento Campus. (Schools, colleges and departments can request mask supplies by completing a FAMIS request.) In addition, disposable N95 masks are available at the Stockton and Sacramento campus testing clinics if you need them (limit five per person per week). Visit our COVID-19 website for information about the type and quality of masks recommended. Thank you for your continued commitment to keeping our community safe. We look forward to seeing you on campus next week.

Sincerely, Your COVID-19 Council co-chairs Maria Blandizzi Vice President for Student Life COVID-19 Council Co-chair Maria Pallavicini Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs COVID-19 Council Co-chair
