Masking Requirements Updated

With the number of COVID-19 cases decreasing, Los Angeles County Public Health has lifted its indoor mask order beginning Friday, March 4, 2022. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the county has reached a key benchmark, moving from high community transmission risk to low community transmission risk, triggering the change.

While the masking mandate has been lifted at the county level, masking is still strongly recommended. In determining Mt. SAC’s masking requirements, the college will continue to follow public health guidance, Cal/OSHA workplace safety guidelines as well as agreements with employee bargaining units.

Beginning Friday, March 4, 2022, the Mt. SAC masking requirement will be as follows: 

While on campus, regardless of vaccination status, Face Coverings are

    • Required indoors for Faculty and Students
      (following a Faculty Association side letter in place through Spring Semester unless another agreement is reached)
    • Recommended indoors for all other groups

Questions related to masking requirements should be sent to


Mt. SAC will continue with its vaccination and testing requirements for students and employees, adhering to the resolution set by the Mt. SAC Board of Trustees in August 2021, which remains in place.
