Updated 8/3/22

Oxy Employees and Students

All Oxy community members must follow all health and safety protocols while on campus, including wearing masks indoors.

Campus Visitors

The campus grounds are currently open to everyone. Visitors will be asked to follow the current guidance that applies to students, staff and faculty and to mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Community members who host visitors are responsible for informing visitors of the applicable rules.

Independent contractors and volunteers who are hired by or invited to Oxy must show proof of vaccination unless they are working exclusively outdoors. Volunteers and contractors should follow all other relevant health and safety policies, including wearing masks indoors.

For prospective students and families: we have resumed our in-person campus tours.
