Hello KGI Faculty, Staff, and Students,
We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back together on campus for the first day of classes. You will find our current campus guidelines and policies below.
The COVID-19 Task Force has worked closely with the following individuals to review guidelines, policies, and recommendations for implementation on KGI’s campus for the past 18 months:
Additional guidance has come from the TCC Coronavirus Response Group (TCC-CRG) through all 7C college’s individual clinical advisors and healthcare providers and teams. The TCC-CRG has met two times a week since the beginning of the pandemic to share information, resources, coordinate responses to guidance, and advocate within LA County for our students and employees.
LA County Department of Public Health (LACDPH)
Since the start of the pandemic, we have aligned our policies to follow the direction of their guidance for higher education institutions. The LACDPH guidance has always been more restrictive than surrounding counties, the California Department of Public Health, and the CDC.
Current LACDPH HEI Guidance
Employee guidance follows OSHA guidelines.
We will work to maintain a safe campus by everyone doing their part to follow our guidelines and protocols:
Our HVAC system in our buildings has been evaluated and filters are changed regularly. No government agency has yet set clear standards for air exchanges in a room for mitigation of the spread of COVID-19. We have adjusted the fans in our HVAC system to be on in every classroom continuously to improve air circulation and increased the amount of air being brought in from the outside.
Please continue to monitor the KGI COVID-19 webpage for archived messages and updated information. If any of the LACDPH guidance changes, we will notify our community immediately by email.
If you have any questions which have not been covered in this communication, please do not hesitate to reply to this message or send an email to COVID-19_Taskforce@kgi.edu.
Be well and have a wonderful semester.
