We are sensitive to continued concerns about COVID-19 and the impact this public health crisis is having on all of you.
The wellbeing and safety of our campus community is our first priority. We hope you are following Yolo County Public Health and CDC guidelines, including practicing social distancing, avoiding private and public gatherings of any size outside of your family or living unit, washing your hands frequently and staying home if you’re sick. Governor Newsom ordered all of the citizens of California to shelter in place and that means limiting your outside activities to essential needs, such as for food and groceries and health care. The key is to limit your exposure to and with other people so that we can flatten the curve and control the spread of COVID-19.
We want to remind our community to do your part!
We urge you to take seriously the instructions for social distancing and other safe health practices in this critical time.
At this date, we do not have a confirmed COVID-19 case on the UC Davis main campus.
On March 17, the campus issued a reporting protocol on how to report a positive COVID-19 test result for you, an immediate family member or colleague. We are following Yolo County public health guidelines for testing and reporting. Having said that, it’s quite probable that there are people who are positive for COVID-19 in our community and they have not been tested or are asymptomatic.
