Dear KGI Community,

The KGI COVID-19 Task Force met this morning to review the most recent updates by LA County.

Please take a moment to read these essential updates:

  • The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has revised the order, which was set to expire April 19. The new order is active through May 15. At this time, we are not prepared to determine a return to campus date for faculty and staff and will review the recommendations as they develop to provide reasonable notification for everyone when that date is specified.
  • We would like to remind everyone who can carry out their work duties from home to do so. If you need to go to campus for any reason, we ask that you follow proper social distancing and face-covering recommendations.
    • LACDPH has revised its face-covering recommendations.
    • Those who provide critical infrastructure activities for KGI and do not have access to a face covering can contact Mark Bennett.
      • Those providing critical infrastructure activities for KGI are asked to do a symptom self-check before coming to work and report any concerns to their direct supervisor.
  • Going forward, the number of reported presumptive and confirmed cases will be updated on the Coronavirus website. Direct notifications will be sent to the community by email if a potential exposure risk to faculty, staff, or students has occurred.
  • TCC is organizing a volunteer mask-making effort for those in the TCC community interested in participating. Here are the details:
    • If you are interested in sewing and donating cloth face masks, TCCS will coordinate the distribution of the donations.
    • It is requested that masks be bagged in plastic Ziplock-type bags in quantities of 5 or 10.
    • Beginning Wednesday, April 15 through Friday, May 8, bagged mask donations can be conveniently dropped off at the west side loading dock of the TCCS library. There will be an outdoor marked bin.
    • Masks will be donated as needed within our TCC community, the Claremont community, and beyond.
    • Mask making details are here, along with information on how to keep the masks safe for distribution is here.

Be well,

Kelly Esperias 
Vice President of Institutional Development and Partnerships
