Dear KGI Community,
We hope you had a successful start to the Spring semester. We want to update you on our COVID-19 response and return to campus plans.
Current COVID-19 Update
The COVID-19 Task Force and President’s Cabinet have evaluated current CDC, California Department of Public Health, and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health data. Given the recent prediction by California Hospitals and LACDPH’s numbers, we have decided:
We will remain on a remote campus until February 14.
Any events scheduled on campus before February 14 will need to continue virtually.
The decision to extend our return by two weeks more creates challenges for everyone in our community. Please know that this delay in returning to campus was made with the greatest concern for our entire community’s safety, health, and well-being.
Based on the latest directives from the California Department of Public Health, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, and California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (commonly referred to as Cal/OSHA), all employees, students, including visitors coming to campus will need to wear a well-fitting medical-grade, surgical mask or higher-level respirator approved by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
All employees and students can no longer utilize cloth face coverings. Please review KGI’s updated face-covering policy. Employees can receive a KN95 mask in the 535 West Conference room. If you cannot wear a face-covering due to medical reasons or disability, please contact Human Resources at HR@kgi.edu.
We will continue to evaluate the current numbers and predictions to get us back together as soon as the situation improves. Thank you for your efforts to help maintain a healthy and positive campus community.
