Updated testing protocols for fully vaccinated individuals

The UC Riverside Public Health Advisory Group has recommended that the campus adopt more robust testing protocols for fully vaccinated, asymptomatic members of our community. Those living on campus should get tested every two weeks while others working or learning on campus should get tested once a month.

New Testing Sites
Two new COVID-19 testing sites on the UC Riverside campus open on February 1. The new satellite locations are in Bannockburn G-105 and outside the Student Success Center. Hours this week for both sites, which are open to students and employees, are Tuesday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The primary student/employee testing site in the Pentland Hills Bear Cave meeting room remains open. 

Reporting COVID-19 Test Results
After getting tested for COVID-19, employees should report the results to the Daily Wellness Check

Parking at Primary Testing Site
A short-term parking permit for lot 15 is available for individuals getting tested for COVID-19 at the testing site at Pentland Hills. Details on how to access the permit available here

How to Request Face Coverings 
Employees can get free surgical and N95 masks on campus. Environmental Health & Safety is providing up to five N95 masks and 10 surgical masks to UCR personnel. The Well is providing free masks and COVID-19 wellness kits to UCR students.

Booster Deadline
Eligible employees should submit their proof of having obtained the COVID-19 booster by Feb. 25 through the MyChart system to remain in compliance with the UC vaccination policy. Information on who is eligible for a booster can be found here
