Health & safety while on campus


We trust you will continue to actively monitor your health and refrain from coming to campus and contact health@pcad.edu if you have tested positive for COVID-19, are waiting for COVID-19 test results, or have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive.


The CDC now advises that indoor masking is only necessary for areas experiencing high levels of COVID-19. As such, the College policy is now Mask Optional

It is important to note that masks remain optional and acknowledge that wearing a mask is a personal choice. The College fully supports anyone who chooses to wear a mask and expects all members of the campus community to be respectful of this choice. It is also important to keep in mind that students and employees engaging in College-related experiences off-campus will need to comply with the requirements of external facilities when it comes to masking.

Should COVID-19 cases on our campus rise to significant levels or should our county move into the CDC’s high transmission category, the College may reinstate the indoor masking mandate and will communicate that immediately. You may continue to direct any Covid-19 related questions to the Health & Safety Team at health@pcad.edu

Especially in a mask-optional environment, it is important to remain vigilant to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Community members who are symptomatic should get tested, notify the Health and Safety team, and follow the College’s 5-step Covid Guidance Plan if they test positive.
