UC Riverside has created five campus working groups to plan for the fall and the transition to returning to campus.

See below for the latest updates from the working groups:

Research Ramp-up

Starting May 26, campus laboratories that conduct human subjects research may resume operations as long as they abide by a matrix designed to assess the risk in conducting in-person research involving human subjects and their Work Site Specific Plans have been approved.

COVID Management

The COVID Management working group’s campus briefing takes place Thursday, May 27 at 11 a.m. on the UCR YouTube channel. The briefing will access topics such as testing protocols, vaccine tracking, health guidance, and at-home COVID testing.


Human Resources alerted employees this week on plans to create employee medical records in the highly secured EPIC system, which will house the information employees submit when they complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Tracking Form. So far more than 1,400 employees have already completed the form. 

Operational Continuity

The Operational Continuity working group's campus briefing took place May 21.  Watch here and read the PowerPoint presentation.
