Health Protocols

UC Davis students who live on campus must follow all campus health protocols, which are developed from guidance from county and State health officials. Health protocols may be subject to change as the county and state guidance is revised. Indoor shared spaces, such as living rooms and rec rooms, may be open or closed at various times during the quarter, and meals prepared in the dining commons and campus dining venues may be available in a to-go service model and/or available for dine-in, based upon current county and state health requirements.

COVID-19 Testing

Campus residents must be tested for COVID-19 regularly. Currently, testing is performed on a weekly basis. Students who test positive for COVID-19, as well as students who have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, will be required to quarantine or isolate for a prescribed amount of time to minimize the spread of COVID-19 (currently 10 days).
