COVID-19 Update for Employees

Dear Faculty and Staff,

As we continue to prioritize the safety and well-being of the Scripps College community, we would like to share important updates regarding COVID-19 vaccine and testing opportunities.

COVID-19 Vaccine:We strongly encourage all Scripps employees to consider getting the new COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccination is a vital step in protecting yourself and the campus community against the spread of COVID-19. To find a vaccination location near you, please visit the California Department of Public Health website: Vaccination Location Finder. Keeping the Scripps community safe and healthy is paramount, and this preventive measure aligns with the College’s commitment to prioritize the health and safety of everyone in our community.

Free COVID-19 Tests:Effective September 25, 2023, the U.S. government has reinstated the initiative to provide up to four free COVID-19 tests per household. Regular testing remains an essential tool in managing the spread of the virus and ensuring early detection. We strongly encourage our employees to take advantage of this opportunity to access free testing. Please visit the website to order your free COVID-19 tests.

COVID-19 Scripps Community Updates:Remember to stay current on all COVID-19 communications updates from the College. Visit Inside Scripps, scroll down to Campus Community Essentials, and select COVID-19 Updates.

Please stay vigilant, prioritize your health, and continue to follow all recommended health practices.
