October 27, 2020

Dear UCI Students:

The Silverado Fire continues to burn throughout parts of South Orange County. Our thoughts go out to those who are impacted by these devastating fires.

Due to the unhealthy air conditions, all COVID-19 testing for on-campus residents will be cancelled today. More information on rescheduling appointments is forthcoming.

The following units are closed for on-site service: 

Student residents are advised to stay indoors. Dining Facilities will remain open for food service.

For our students and their families who are facing significant impacts due to the loss of their home or are in need of support due to evacuations, please contact the Campus Social Worker at campussocialworker@uci.edu or phone 949-824-0101 for support and assistance.

Environmental Health & Safety will continue to monitor the air quality on campus and will coordinate with UCI’s Emergency Management to notify groups who may be affected by the air quality. Information will be updated at www.uci.edu
