For the latest campus information, see UC Berkeley's prevention and response efforts related to novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
On the Berkeley campus, we are proactively engaged in pandemic planning in collaboration with our public health partners: this includes everything from intentional use and preservation of essential medical supplies and staffing resources, to enhancing protocols and coordinating efforts to isolate sick and quarantine at-risk individuals. This is in addition to ongoing efforts which include campus leaders meeting at least weekly to develop and review plans regarding such matters as where and how to house individuals if a case occurs; how to ensure we will meet teaching obligations if there are a number of cases on campus; and how to assist and support international students from impacted countries as well as other members of our campus community.
Campus officials are also working in coordination with the University of California, Office of the President, which activated its Emergency Operations Center many weeks ago and continues to hold regular conference calls including medical, environmental health & safety, administrative, and emergency management leadership from across the UC system.
