In-Person Activity Guidance at UC Davis - Effective June 18, 2021
On June 15, 2021, the State of California transitioned to the Beyond the Blueprint plan. All employees and students may proceed with events, meetings and activities while maintaining the following public health mitigations. For additional detail on the campus public health guidance, visit the Public Health Policies & Requirements page.
- There are no restrictions on capacity. All indoor locations should abide by Fire Marshal posted occupancy limits.
- Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear a face covering indoors or outdoors, except in special settings where face coverings are required for everyone.
- Unvaccinated individuals are required to wear a face covering indoors and also outdoors in crowded spaces.
- Find out which buildings and special situations on campus require face coverings for everyone, regardless of vaccination status.
- Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to maintain physical distance from others.
- Unvaccinated employees must maintain physical distance from others while eating indoors in workplace settings.
Food is permitted in any setting in accordance with County Health Code requirements. Please review the detailed guidance for potluck service.
Non-affiliates must abide by California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidance which requires unvaccinated individuals to wear a face covering in indoor public settings and businesses.
Compliance Guidance for Hosts
Campus is currently working on installing new signage to include the revised face covering and physical distancing guidance. Hosts should also implement the following practices:
- Include the new face covering and physical distancing guidance in event promotions to attendees.
- Post temporary signage now available on the Campus Ready website and announce at the beginning of the event or meeting the new face covering and physical distancing guidance to attendees.
- Require all employees and students to complete the Daily Symptom Survey through the summer and show their “approved” status. Non-affiliates will complete the visitor version of the symptom survey. (We expect that the Daily Symptom Survey will not be required for entrance into campus facilities beginning in the fall.)
- Check the color of the Daily Symptom Survey pass to identify if a face covering is required. Green Daily Symptom Survey passes indicate face covering is not required. Face coverings are required for persons presenting purple Daily Symptom Survey passes. If the attendee does not have a mask, you can ask the attendee to return when they have one to wear. If someone with a purple pass refuses to wear a mask, they are not permitted to enter.
Event, Meeting and Activity Reservations
On and off-campus events, meetings and activities are now permissible. As of June 16, 2021, on-campus reservations have been expanded from UC Davis departments only to now allow student organizations and external groups to reserve space via the Conference and Events Services website. Classroom spaces are available to reserve for events/activities that are held after Monday, September 13, 2021.
During this ramp-up period over the summer, campus is in the process of securing staff and resources to be able to fully open our facilities and limited indoor and outdoor spaces will be available. Availability of facilities will also fluctuate and be dependent on the request, so please note that even if a facility says it’s “available,” you may not be able to reserve this space once your request has been evaluated by the CES team. To help with your planning, CES has also provided a list of facilities on the “Space Availability” page that are not available or have limited availability at this time.
Please note that it is the responsibility of the unit sponsoring and/or hosting the event to comply with the requirements listed above and provided on the Public Health Policies & Requirements page.
