CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 112 COVID-19 Response and Recovery Task Force

Following Up on May 21 Faculty and Staff Town Hall

To: Faculty and Staff

Dear Colleagues:

Thank you to those who tuned into our May 21 town hall for faculty and staff and to those who contributed questions to our Q&A session. In addition, we would like to thank the presenters and panelists who shared information and answered questions about our plans and anticipated expectations for a return to in-person teaching at UCLA this fall, as well as other related issues. We hope this discussion was helpful for you. As we continue to prepare for a safer return to campus and a successful return to in-person teaching, it is important that we keep the campus community informed of the steps UCLA is taking and what to expect in the months ahead.

If you missed all or part of this discussion, a recording of this town hall and the presentation slides are available to view online. We will also be posting answers there in the coming days to some of the submitted questions that we were not able to answer live. As always, we encourage you to visit UCLA’s COVID-19 website and Bruins Safe Online for updates about our campus response to the pandemic.

If you have additional questions, concerns or thoughts about UCLA’s COVID-19 response or fall plans, please write to [email protected].
