The Strategic Advisory Group is mapping out the details related to our workforce, research, students (current and prospective), instruction (undergraduate and graduate), health (patient and public), technology, and business operations.
The phase-in decisions are being made with an abundance of thought and planning, with the health of our community at the forefront. Our guiding principles are as follows:
Our primary concern is our people.
We will follow public health directives.
Transitions will be measured, careful, and flexible.
We will learn as we proceed and incorporate new techniques and technologies as they become available.
The UCI campus has 10 reported positive COVID-19 cases – seven have been clinically cleared.
In accordance of health privacy laws, we cannot disclose the identity or personal information. We are in coordination with the Orange County Health Care Agency and connecting with those who may have been exposed through contact.
We recognize that not every concern or question may be addressed, especially those with uniquely individual circumstances.
We have established the UCI Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response Center. Students, staff, faculty, parents, and community partners may call 949-824-9918 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to connect directly for more information.
Reducing the spread of viruses starts with basic hygiene. Here are preventative measures that you can follow to keep our community healthy.
Always wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. *It's not the water temperature, but the time you take rubbing the hands (20 seconds).
Cover your mouth with your elbow when you cough.
If you are sick, stay home and do not travel. Call ahead before visiting your doctor or the Student Health Center to arrange a time to be seen.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
We are excited to welcome you to our community. Your admission to UCI opens the door to an extraordinary journey at one of the nation’s top ten public universities, where you can experience high-quality research and learning, build a lifetime of relationships and fond memories and, of course, cheer the fiercest mascot in the history of higher education.
