Important Housing Updates – May 27, 2022

Section 1

May 27, 2022

Greetings Housing Residents,

We hope you are doing well as we approach the end of the quarter. COVID-19 has continued to present challenges this quarter, and we want to share some important reminders:

Face masks strongly recommended in indoor public places, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Wearing a face mask is strongly recommend for indoor events. Free face coverings are available for pick up at these locations.
  • Free COVID-19 at-home antigen tests are available in your community. Check with your RA or community housing office for test pick-up times and locations.
  • If you test positive for COVID-19, report your case on the Student Health Patient Portal and respond yes to the daily symptom check the next morning. 
  • Call UCI Contact Tracing and Vaccine Navigation Services at 949-824-2300 and leave a message reporting your case and the best phone number to reach you and staff will reach out to you the next morning. Once you have spoken to Contact Tracing, arrangements will be made for you to move to isolation housing. 
  • If you believe you are having a medical emergency, call 911.
  • Keep in mind that if you catch COVID-19 during the end of the quarter, it could impact your finals, and may hinder your travel plans once the quarter ends. Check in with your instructors on whether there will be any alternative to an ‘in-person’ final exam if students are required to isolate. If you have a flight reservation that you are unable to keep, contact the airline to rebook your travel.

Visit the UCI Forward Website for more information and resources.

We know this year has had many challenges, and your ability to persevere has been impressive. Wishing you good health and the best of luck with finals!
