Students will be required to fill out a survey to monitor for COVID-19 symptoms daily before entering campus, according to UCLA guidelines for COVID-19 monitoring.

Students will receive a daily email reminder to complete a one- to two-minute survey to monitor for symptoms before entering campus. Upon completion of the survey, students will either receive a certificate to enter campus, which expires at 4 a.m. the next day, or will be directed to call the Arthur Ashe Student Health and Wellness Center COVID-19 hotline to receive instruction for testing or isolation.

Students living in university-owned housing must complete the survey daily.

The Ashe Center will notify students if they come into close contact with a person who tests positive for COVID-19.

UCLA staff must also fill out a survey before coming to work. 

The Facilities Management custodial services will use an Environmental Protection Agency-approved disinfectant for COVID-19 to clean high-touch areas at least twice a day.

Local and state regulations do not require UCLA to administer temperature checks; however, UCLA may administer temperature checks for activities with a high exposure risk, including for research labs handling COVID-19 samples, health care workers and support staff in health care facilities.

UCLA announced Monday that the majority of fall quarter classes will be taught virtually – less than 20% of classes will be taught in person. Some extracurricular activities will still be offered in person. 

UCLA housing will also be offered at a reduced density, and will set aside some rooms specifically for quarantining.

According to a UCLA guide for self-monitoring, COVID-19 symptoms include:

  • Body temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher
  • Cough
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sore throat
  • Muscle aches
  • Diarrhea 
  • Severe fatigue
  • Nasal congestion 
  • Loss of sense or taste or smell
