PCC resumed on-campus operations on Monday, January 24, 2022. As we continue to navigate this pandemic, we are working closely with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and Pasadena Public Health Department to ensure we maintain a safe campus environment. While the college is open, students, faculty, and staff will be required to follow extra precautions to keep us healthy and safe.

PCC Events - Covid Safety Policies and Procedures

Pre-Event Health Survey

All presenters, performers, and attendees should fill out a Health Survey prior to hosting or attending an event at PCC. This health survey can be found HERE.

  • If cleared, the person will receive an email with a green checkmark and the completion date and time of the survey. Participants and attendees should keep this email to show if requested by PCC staff.
  • If not cleared, the person should not attend the event.

It is not required to show proof of vaccination to attend an event at PCC.

Covid Testing

It is recommended that all participants have a negative Covid test from within 24 hours of the event.

Outdoor Masking

Masking is not required while outdoors.

Indoor Masking


  • Guests are required to mask in all indoor spaces.
  • If a guest does not have a mask, one should be made available by event organizers.


  • If indoors, solo performers/presenters may be unmasked if socially distanced from others during the time they are presenting.
  • If multiple performers/presenters need to be unmasked, a negative rapid antigen test taken within 24 hours of the event is highly recommended.
  • Performers/presenters should be masked while not presenting


The following should be communicated to all participants beforehand:

  • If you have symptoms, you should not attend the event, even if your symptoms are not due to Covid
  • If you have been exposed to a confirmed positive Covid case in the last 10 days, and you have no symptoms, you are required to be masked at all times during the event, indoors and outdoors.
  • If you have recently exited isolation for testing positive for Covid and have resolving residual symptoms, you are required to be masked at all times during the event, indoors and outdoors.
  • Please consider your own risk tolerance and that of the members of your household in your decision of whether or not to wear a mask

Other Precautions

  • Hand Sanitizing Stations should be available throughout the event
  • Masks should be made available by event organizers throughout the event
  • Event Organizers can choose to require and check for a negative Covid test from within 24 hours of an event

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have completed your Isolation period and have no symptoms, then yes, you are free to attend PCC's in-person events.

If you are a PCC student or employee, you will have to be cleared by PCC's Covid Support team before you may attend an in-person event. Please contact CovidSupport@pasadena.edu if you have any questions. 

Unfortunately, it is recommended that you stay home, rest, and test for Covid frequently. Even with mild symptoms, symptoms can develop into Covid, or you can still be contagious toward others, even if it may not be Covid.

Yes, you are not required to quarantine if you were exposed and have no symptoms, but you should mask for 10 days from the last day of your exposure, indoor and outdoor, while around others. Please refer to this Exposure Flowchart to see if you're cleared to be on campus.

Indoor masking is required, but all other protocols are strong recommendations. The Health Survey above can also be available to you, if you'd like to screen guests prior to your event.
