UCH Coordinating Committee Guidance

As the awareness of the SARS-CoV-2 virus began in early 2020, University of California Health convened a coordinating committee comprising subject matter experts from around the system to address potential health and safety risks to the University’s students, faculty and staff. In the subsequent two years, UC-HCC provided guidance that has enabled development of prevention and mitigation infrastructures on each UC campus and systemwide sharing of best practices.

In Spring 2022 the pandemic transitioned into a new phase and guidance from public health and workplace safety authorities has evolved. Individual UC locations have built the capacity to manage health and safety risks posed by COVID-19. As a result, UC-HCC’s systemwide guidance is being retired. UC locations are aligned with state and federal public health guidance while working closely with their local public health departments to adjust to local conditions.

University of California Health thanks the many individuals across the UC system who contributed to the University’s COVID-19 health response.

UC-HCC will evaluate conditions again in July 2022 or sooner if circumstances warrant to determine if UC locations are in need of further guidance beyond that available from public health and workplace safety authorities.

For the most current guidance on COVID-19 prevention and mitigation strategies, please view the information available on the websites for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, California Department of Public Health, Cal/OSHA, as well as your local health department office.
