Heightened Alert

COVID-19

Campus has suspended certain operations and activities in accordance with current federal, state, and local Orders. During this time, campus will continue to operate with reduced staffing to support services including health care, emergency responders, and other core functions. Beginning June 1, approved research efforts will begin to slowly ramp up.  Staff working remotely are expected to do so in coordination with their supervisors until at least January 4, 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.

Extending Remote Work

 

To: Faculty and Staff

Dear Colleagues:

Over the past several months, we have all had to make enormous adjustments in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
