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):
If you must be on campus as an essential on-site worker, you should return to work without quarantine after you attest to the daily Symptom Screener survey, however, you are advised to otherwise self-quarantine for 7 days followed by a negative COVID-19 test. We strongly advise ALL essential workers to get testing weekly regardless of travel.
PERIODICALLY ON-SITE EMPLOYEES (FACULTY/STAFF/STUDENT EMPLOYEES):
If you can work remotely, consider remote work and self-quarantine for 7 days followed by a negative COVID-19 test, or a 14 day self-quarantine. When you return, you must attest to the daily Symptom Screener survey.
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.
