Heightened Alert


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 has resumed some limited in-person on-campus activities as specified in the UCLA LACDPH Protocol for Institutes of Higher Education. 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.


Members of the UCLA Football team have three or more individuals 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.
