The university recommends that faculty and school staff organize remote meetings and events during the first two weeks of the term. However, other campus activities will continue on schedule and students are encouraged to return to campus on time.

But before their return, the UCSC asks them:

  • Get a COVID-19 reminder
  • Get tested before returning to campus and do not return to campus if the test is positive.

“We anticipate that all classes scheduled to be in-person will resume teaching fully in-person on Jan. 18,” UCSC said. “We will closely monitor the public health environment and the advice and information provided by local public health authorities and adjust our plans as necessary.”
