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 three days.


COVID-19 Positive Report Response

Reports are reviewed within 24 hours by team in Student Health and Counseling Services (for students) and Occupational Health and Risk Management (for employees). The UC Davis COVID-19 report response team promptly initiates medical actions.
