COVID-19 Vaccine & Testing Information
COVID-19 Vaccination Information:
Providing proof of vaccination is not currently required prior to entering Palo Alto University campuses. PAU strongly encourages all students, faculty and staff to get vaccinated for COVID-19 (and flu). Vaccination helps keep our campus community safe, helps protect those among us who are most vulnerable to COVID-19 (and flu), and is our path back to more normal operations and the full college experience that our students deserve. Please visit these resources to learn more: COVID-19 Vaccine, Testing & Treatment Information- Santa Clara County.
PCR testing and rapid antigen test kits (home test kits) remain widely available through health care providers and pharmacies. If you suspect you may have COVID-19, please test before arriving at any PAU facility.

PAU follows current Santa Clara County Guidelines which advises those who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 to get tested right away. Test kits can be purchased at most local drugstores and pharmacies or online. Some health insurance carriers provide free test kits to their customers upon request. PAU will maintain a limited supply of test kits, at no charge, for students in need. These will be available at the check-in desks at the library on the AC Campus, and the Gronowski Center on the MV campus.
