COVID-19 Information and Resources


Updated 08/15/2022

UC Vaccination Compliance Policy
Vaccinations/boosters are required for those who are eligible. Reminder, if you are fully remote and plan to return to in-person onsite/hybrid work, please visit the UCLA COVID-19 Action Center to:

  • Change remote status
  • Upload proof of vaccination or request an exception
  • Upload COVID-19 test results from outside the USLA testing system
  • Quickly access latest protocols, updates, information and resources

Symptom Monitoring Survey
Effective August 15, 2022 the Daily Symptom Monitoring Survey is no longer required. Instead, complete a self-assessment of COVID-19 symptoms and not come to campus if symptoms are present.

Testing requirement (updated per email on 8/12/2022)

  • Testing is no longer required. Students, faculty and staff may continue to test up to 2x per week through the campus surveillance testing program if concerned of possible COVID-19 exposure.

Masking (updated per email on 8/12/2022)
Effective August 15, indoor masking will no longer be required but strongly encouraged for everyone (except where LACDPH may require indoor masks). The department has masks available for pickup at 1-129 Knudsen Hall, and students can pick up masks at various campus locations including Wooden Center, Student Activities Center, and ASUCLA locations (Ackerman Union Information Window and Ackerman indoor dining locations).

Isolation and Quarantine Guidelines (last updated 8/1/22)
See updated Isolation and Quarantine guidelines here and recap below:

  • Symptomatic: Those who have tested positive must isolate for 10 days unless:
    • You have a negative covid-19 viral (antigen) test result collected on Day 5 or later, and
    • You have not had a fever for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication, and
    • Your symptoms are improving
  • Asymptomatic: Those who tested positive for covid-19 but never had symptoms, you may end isolation on Day 5 or later if:
    • You have a negative covid-19 viral (antigen) test result collected on Day 5 or later, and
    • You never got symptoms of covid-19
    • If you later develop symptoms, you must follow the symptomatic isolation instructions
  • Quarantine: Close contacts who are not exempt from quarantine (see below) can end quarantine if they receive a negative test (through the campus vending machine PCR test kits) on day 5 or later AND are asymptomatic.
  • Those who are unable to test must isolate or quarantine for the full 10 days, as specified. They must wear a mask around others, indoors and outdoors, for 10 days.
  • Quarantine Exemption: Individuals are exempt from quarantine if they are up to date on their Covid-19 vaccines (i.e., have received their Covid-19 booster or are fully vaccinated but not yet booster-eligible per LACDPH definition (PDF)), or have recovered from Covid-19 within the previous 90 days. This exemption includes following testing and masking requirements.
  • Regardless of vaccination status, if you have a positive test result, please contact the Covid call center immediately for guidance on the next steps.
