Faculty / Staff Travel Recommendations
If you have traveled outside of the 10 Bay Area Counties in the last 14 days:
**does not apply if you regularly commute to work in Berkeley from places outside of the Bay Area.
ON-SITE EMPLOYEES (FACULTY/STAFF/STUDENT EMPLOYEES):
Essential workers are advised to consult with supervisors to see if they can work remotely for the 1-2 weeks following return to the Bay Area, and are strongly advised to seek COVID surveillance testing (and a negative result) before returning to campus.
Essential workers who cannot work remotely may return to work without quarantine after you attest to the daily Symptom Screener survey, however, we strongly advise a test on return then re-test (with negative results) at one week before returning to regular activity.
TESTING: We encourage you to take advantage of UHS's asymptomatic COVID-19 testing program. Getting a test is easy. Simply go to eTang.berkeley.edu, select "Schedule an appointment" in the "Appointments" tab and answer a few questions to get started. Asymptomatic testing sites are currently located at the Recreational Sports Facility and Memorial Stadium.
**IF AT ANY POINT YOU DEVELOP SYMPTOMS, YOU SHOULD STAY HOME, SELF-ISOLATE, CALL OCC HEALTH TO DISCUSS SYMPTOMATIC TESTING, AND CONTACT YOUR PRIMARY CARE PROVIDER FOR EVALUATION. **
UCOP continues to operate under a systemwide directive that restricts non-essential travel on University business. Please see the Campus Travel website for more information.
