Dear Campus Community: 

On Friday, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors asked the Public Health officer to rescind the order mandating the closure of universities in the county.

This action will not result in any immediate changes to UC Riverside’s campus operations or our plans for remote instruction this spring and summer. These actions essentially move us under the State of California requirements.

Governor Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order remains in place until further notice. We will continue to ask employees who are currently working on campus to wear face coverings and to practice physical distancing to the maximum extent possible.

UCR leaders are meeting with Riverside County health officials to help inform our planning for future adjustments to campus operations, and we will update the campus as more details become available.
