Mask Mandate

The campus has reinstated the mask mandate and all persons regardless of vaccination status must wear a mask while indoors. The exception is alone in your office with the door closed or while eating. 

Cloth masks worn alone no longer satisfy the mask requirement for employees. If you want to wear a cloth mask it must be worn with another mask (examples are cloth mask and a surgical mask, cloth mask and an n95). Please visit the face covering webpage for more information.

Masks (surgical and N95) are available for pick-up at the Haz Mat Center on Frank Schlessinger Way. Supplies may go quickly but they will restock each month.

More information about picking up masks. 

Vaccination Mandate


As of 1/3/22: The UC system announced that the current UC COVID-19 vaccination policy requires faculty, staff and students to obtain a booster shot as soon as they are eligible. Our campus expects all faculty, staff, and students who are eligible to get their booster no later than Jan 31.  More information can be found on the vaccination/booster website.

If you received your vaccination and/or booster at an off-campus vaccination site, here are directions how to upload your vaccination record to eTang.
