COVID-19 Information and Resources

Updated October 7, 2021

Student employees should contact the department Graduate Office for specific guidelines.

Symptom monitoring survey

One time only – enroll at the symptom monitoring site. Complete the survey each day you work on campus, prior to going to campus, so you can be sure you are cleared to work onsite.

Clearance portal

Check your and your direct reports’ symptom monitoring survey clearance status at this portal. Supervisors should confirm that your team members are completing the survey on the days they're on campus.


Unvaccinated individuals working, learning or living on campus or other UCLA property are required to participate in twice weekly testing. Vaccinated asymptomatic individuals who have verified their vaccination status are no longer required to test, although they are highly encouraged to test at least once per week.

Regardless of vaccination status, if you have a positive test result, please contact the Covid call center immediately for guidance on the next steps:

  • Students: 310-206-6217
  • Faculty/Staff: 310-267-3300

UCLA Mobile App

The UCLA Mobile App is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, and includes access to the following:

  • Symptom Monitoring survey (complete your survey on your device)
  • Covid clearance (see your clearance status for the day)
  • Supervisor Clearance Portal
  • Testing kit vending machine locations


Masking is required indoors in public spaces and in shared offices; the department has masks available for pickup at 1-129 Knudsen Hall.

Vaccination compliance

Proof of compliance with the vaccination policy will need to be uploaded via the symptom monitoring portal by September 9; failure to do this will result in non-clearance to come to campus.

Training Course

The online Covid-19 Prevention (2021) UCLA Update Training Course is a requirement. Please complete the training by 09/30/2021 or prior to working onsite, whichever comes first, via your UC Online Learning (LMS) portal and forward your certificate of completion to your manager.
