May 15 Update from Jason Tavarez 

Congratulations on finishing out the Spring Semester! As we begin Mayterm and preparations for summer and the fall, I wanted to update the community on mask guidance and expectations. 

Per the newest guidance published by the CDC, State of California, and County of Santa Barbara, we will be relaxing our outdoor mask requirement! As many of you have heard, the CDC has stated that the risk of outdoor transmission, when coupled with distance, is very, very low. For now, masks will not be required outdoors when physical distance (6' or more) between individuals can be maintained. If a gathering is happening outdoors and distance isn't possible, masks will be required. 

Indoors, masks will still be required regardless of vaccination status for the time being. I am in contact with our county officials and hope to continue to update this guidance as appropriate. 

Lastly, if you have not already done so, please consider getting vaccinated. If you have any questions or concerns about the process, talk to your doctor or pharmacist and ask questions about the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Warrior Strong Our COVID-19 Plans

We are on our way to the final stretch of the spring semester! We're continuing both online and outdoor, in-person classes. Santa Barbara County has met the State’s Red Tier case rate allowing movement into the less restrictive Red Tier, effective Wednesday, March 17. We're safely open for visits from prospective students. Make a reservation to visit today.

Warriors – Mask Up!

When it comes to face masks, Westmont has you covered! In fact, Westmont has expanded its face covering options to include four different designs to show your Warrior pride while following state and county health requirements. The face masks are FREE to all students, faculty and staff at the admissions lobby of Kerrwood Hall. Alumni and parents may purchase one through the Westmont Bookstore. The fabric, which meets CDC requirements for COVID-19 protection, is incredibly comfortable and breathable, and easily washable. Remember, true Warriors smile with their eyes.

We're all in it together to #protectthemont.

The safety of our Westmont community remains our highest priority. With discipline and commitment, we'll get through this together. 

Congratulations to our student winners of the #protectthemont film competition!
