Face masks

Added May 21, 2021

Despite the recent announcement from the CDC and President Biden about flexibilities with masking outdoors, UCLA must continue to follow the stricter guidance of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the state of California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) on UCLA property. Requirements are listed below:

  • Face masks are required for everyone outdoors when physical distancing cannot be maintained, including when attending outdoor events on the UCLA campus.
  • Individuals are not required to wear a face mask when on campus in their own personal living space, when alone in a closed office, or when eating or drinking in a designated dining area. 
  • Cal/OSHA still requires employees, including student employees, to wear masks on UCLA property when in contact or likely to be in contact with others.
