COVID Response

Our focus is on reducing risk to our campus community.

UC Davis evaluates COVID-positive reports and exposures using public health and CDC guidance.

Return to Work Response and Symptom Monitoring Process

Varies depending on whether employee:

  • Has COVID symptoms or tests positive
  • Has personal contact with someone COVID-positive
  • Spends time in a facility entered by someone COVID-positive
  • May require return-to-work slip before returning to UC Davis

Facilities Response 

If a COVID-positive person enters a facility, access may need to be closed to certain areas if that exposure was within the past seven days.


COVID-19 Positive Report Response

COVID-19 Positive Reports are reviewed within 24 hours by team in Student Health, Occupational Health and Risk Management. The UC Davis COVID-19 report response team promptly initiates medical and public information actions.
