Vaccination policy: The University of California requires that UCLA students, faculty and staff who are living, working or learning on campus or at other UCLA properties be vaccinated against COVID-19 — with limited exceptions and accommodations for medical reasons or religious beliefs, as well as deferrals for those who are pregnant.

Confirmed cases: Since March 16, 2020, UCLA has provided regular updates on the number of students, faculty and staff — both on and off campus — who have been confirmed by medical professionals to have COVID-19. Consistent with the protocols for infectious disease response, anyone identified within our campus community as being at risk of COVID-19 as a result of exposure to an infected person will be notified if they need to quarantine and be tested.

Information on vaccination rates and confirmed cases is typically updated daily (Monday through Friday) at 5 p.m. Due to the surge caused by new COVID variants, updates to confirmed cases have been delayed slightly as we process a high volume of test results. New data will be added as tests are confirmed and UCLA contact tracers complete their work.
