Heightened Alert


Staff at the UCLA Mail, Document & Distribution Services have been identified as testing positive for COVID-19. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) has informed UCLA this constitutes an outbreak. Campus officials are taking the necessary steps to respond and working in coordination with LACDPH will continue to take additional actions as appropriate. (1/14/21)


All COVID-19 related hospitalizations and fatalities of employees must be reported to the EH&S Serious Injury Hotline at 310-825-9797 (Option 2), even in instances where work-relatedness is uncertain.

Pursuant to public health orders, the campus is currently closed to the general public. Only people who are engaged in essential campus operations, are attending approved in-person courses, or are receiving care at UCLA hospitals and clinics are permitted. Staff working remotely are expected to do so in coordination with their supervisors through at least June 30, 2021.

UCLA officials are closely monitoring the situation and associated communications from county, state, and federal authorities. We will continue to provide information on any new developments that would impact the campus, and take action to ensure the health and safety of the Bruin community.
