For over a year UCR campus has kept its doors closed due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Nevertheless, optimism is in the air to reopen campus for fall 2021 instruction.
On January 11th, UC President Michael V. Drake and the 10 UC Chancellors announced their decision for a systemwide return to in-person instruction for fall 2021. The announcement was made with the hope that Covid-19 vaccines would be administered widely and most students will be vaccinated by fall.
For the past few months, UCR Health and Riverside County have been working hard to accommodate UCR employees working on campus with the vaccine. As of now, UCR is in phase 2 of a 4-phase plan to return to campus at normal capacity. At this rate, officials are still hopeful that we will achieve the goal to reopen campus by fall 2021.
