The West Valley Mission Community College District has updated its masking policy to make masking recommended in public and indoor spaces. The Planetarium will suggest to school groups, students and visitors that masking is highly recommended while visiting. While the District will maintain recommended air filtration standards, including the use of Merv-13 air filters, the Planetarium is an enclosed theater space and leaving doors or windows open is not an option.
The West Valley-Mission CCD is committed to protecting the health and well-being of students, faculty, staff, administrators, and the communities we serve.
