COVID-19 Community Update – June 22

Posted on Updated on

Pepperdine continues to make plans to fully reopen its campuses in anticipation of the fall semester and welcome the Waves community home. In an effort to update the community with the most accurate information, Pepperdine continues to closely follow developments with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH), which is scheduled to provide a briefing for institutes of higher education later this week. Once University officials evaluate the information received from LACDPH, updated information will be provided to the community likely sometime next week.  

On June 17 the University announced COVID-19 protocols for social distancing and face coverings on campus have changed, relaxing many social distancing and face covering guidelines. At this time, however, updated social distancing and face covering guidance may not be reflected in all current COVID-19 signage on Pepperdine campuses. University officials will review and update campus COVID-19 signage as needed over the coming week.

As a reminder, all students, faculty, and staff must notify the University of their current vaccination status by completing the COVID-19 Vaccination Notification Form no later than June 30. This form is different from the vaccination survey distributed earlier this year and is accessible only by signing into Google using your Pepperdine NetworkID and password. The University is committed to making COVID-19 prevention a top priority and encourages everyone who is able to get vaccinated.

As always, the University stands ready to help. If you have questions regarding any COVID-related issue or concern, please contact the COVID-19 Information Line at 310.506.8111 or via email at
