COVID-19 Information

Updated: Feb. 2, 2024

Los Angeles County has ended its COVID-19 emergency declaration, and Harvey Mudd College has deactivated its COVID-19 emergency website.


Effective immediately, the College no longer requires employees to provide proof of vaccination/booster for COVID-19. A limited supply of antigen tests are available to employees by contacting the Office of Human Resources

Students enrolling at Harvey Mudd College in fall 2023 are required to be vaccinated for COVID-19 and for influenza, in addition to other required entrance vaccinations. No decision has yet been made regarding vaccination requirements for students entering Harvey Mudd College in fall 2024. That information will be communicated to students once it is available. For questions, contact the Division of Student Affairs

Mask-Friendly Campus

While masking is no longer required on campus, we remain a “mask-friendly” campus. Faculty may require students to wear masks in their classes, labs and offices. Faculty are encouraged to clearly state their masking policy in course syllabi, and students are encouraged to bring masks with them to campus. A small quantity of masks is available to members of the campus community. If you need a mask, please contact the Office of Facilities and Maintenance (F&M) (faculty and staff) or the Division of Student Affairs (students).

If You Test Positive for COVID-19

Please continue to support best practices through regular hand washing and staying home if you are feeling sick. Students who test positive for COVID-19 should contact the dean of call in the Division of Student Affairs as soon as possible so that you can follow appropriate isolation procedures. Faculty should coordinate with the department chair and/or the dean of the faculty to make arrangements for classroom coverage. Staff should contact their immediate supervisor, who will coordinate with the Office of Human Resources as appropriate.

Post-release Protocol

HMC students have an additional criteria to meet upon being released from isolation; such as testing negative before returning to class or dining halls. Students will be reminded about communicating with their on-call dean regarding the additional criteria. Communication should be sent in a post-release secure message through the SHS portal.

CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund

In support during the Coronavirus pandemic, the federal government has passed the following sources of emergency aid to institutions of higher education.

Additional Information

If additional updates are warranted, or if we begin to experience another COVID-19 outbreak, the emergency website will be reactivated. Updates on testing requirements and other COVID-19 information will be communicated to students, faculty and staff directly via email.
