Until we know enhanced health and safety measures are no longer needed, we will continue to err on the side of caution in protecting our campus community. Safeguards include facial coverings, proper handwashing, physical distancing, frequent cleaning, reduced density in certain spaces and required reporting of symptoms, among others. Our testing and tracing protocols will be shared in the coming weeks. Additional information on our health and safety policies as well as mental health resources can be found here.
Bringing our students back to campus will necessitate several adjustments to academic life and the student experience. For instance, we will adjust the academic calendar to finish in-person activities by Thanksgiving Break. To provide enhanced flexibility and properly manage the density of campus, we will offer a blend of in-person, online and hybrid courses. Our housing and dining options will be adjusted to incorporate enhanced health and safety measures. And we will provide additional direction on campus events and activities.

We want to underscore our admiration and appreciation for your understanding and support as we navigate these uncharted waters. If this pandemic has taught us anything, it is the need for us to have contingency plans for our contingency plans. Given the tremendous amount of work that still must be done, we realize plenty of unanswered questions remain. We ask for your continued patience as we allow our various representative working groups across campus to finalize their planning efforts. We will share the full version of our Return to Campus plan by early July.
Thank you for everything you do to make UC an amazing place to live, learn and grow.
