Whittier College follows recommendations from the Los Angeles County Department of Health and has established the following protocol for testing, isolation, and close contacts.
Students can obtain COVID-19 tests from the Student Health & Wellness Center and from the Wellness Kiosk. There will be an out-of-pocket charge which varies depending on the type of test (PCR or rapid antigen).
The Wellness Kiosk is located on the ground floor of the Wardman Library building at the North Lawn entrance.
The entrance has 24-hour badge access to dispense COVID-19 tests and other wellness products.
Whittier College is required to provide free COVID-19 tests to employees who have been exposed to a positive case in the workplace.
Employees, contracted workers, and volunteers who are close contacts may obtain COVID-19 rapid antigen tests from Human Resources.
