COVID-19 Community Response Plan
Gatherings and Events
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) is the agency responsible
for determining whether large gatherings and events can be held, the maximum number
of people allowed to attend, and the applicable protocols.
Pepperdine has installed physical barriers, such as sneeze guards and partitions, particularly in areas where it is difficult for individuals to maintain physical distance seeking to meet the specific needs of various campus areas and stakeholders while ensuring a consistent and standard application across campuses, including in the following areas:
- Customer service, transaction, and reception areas where frequent, in-person interactions occur throughout the day
- Areas where faculty provide instruction in classrooms
While LACDPH no longer requires these plexiglass installations, the University will keep most of the existing plexiglass in place at this time. Disinfection of installed partitions will be a shared responsibility between the University and the end user of that space. Refer to the University's cleaning plan summary for more information.
Generally, the University will not approve additional requests for plexiglass installation.

Extra outdoor furniture has been placed in on-campus locations such as Alumni Park, Joslyn Plaza, and the residential community. For faculty interested in hosting certain class days outdoors, the University has also invested in outdoor chairs in certain locations.
