Campus Status

The UC San Diego campus is operating with new safety protocols, which have been established in alignment with county and state guidelines to help protect the wellbeing of our campus community. Information on this page is a summary of the details you will find throughout our website.

Employees working remotely: continue to do so unless informed otherwise by your supervisor. Reducing the density of our campus continues to be a critical safety aspect of our plans. Participating in the daily symptom and exposure screening is highly recommended.

Employees working on-site and students living on-campus or planning to visit campus: please note the following checklist before arriving on campus each day:

On-Campus Checklist

  • All UC San Diego faculty, staff and students who are on-campus must complete a daily COVID-19 symptom and exposure screening.
    • Employees working remotely and students studying remotely are also highly encouraged to do so.
    • Learn more about steps to take if you experience symptoms or exposure to COVID-19 and which specific testing options are available to you on the Testing and Screening page.
  • Everyone must wear a face covering at any UC San Diego location.
  • Physical distancing of six feet or more shall be maintained in all areas.
    • Where possible, seating will be repositioned to address the required six feet separations.
    • Campus community members must abide by signage indicating entrances and exits for classrooms, teaching labs and lecture halls to avoid pinch points.
    • Elevator use is restricted to one person per car at any given time.
  • Employees required to return to campus should:
    • Complete the COVID-19 Return to Work Training before arriving for their first day.
    • Sign the Training Roster, indicating that they have read and understand their department or group’s specific Social Distancing and Sanitation Protocol.
