The University of California may not return to normal operations until September 2021 or later, a UC Health official said at the UC Board of Regents meeting Wednesday.

Carrie Byington, the UC Health executive vice president, said she believes COVID-19 mitigation strategies will still be in place across the UC for at least another year. She added she hopes these measures phase out between September 2021 and July 2022.

“This is not something that will go away quickly,” Byington said.

Byington added she told the UC campus chancellors that things will not be back to normal in January and that they need to start planning for their winter terms now.

None of the nine undergraduate UC campuses have announced plans for their winter quarter or semester as of this story’s publication.

Meanwhile, the California State University system announced Sept. 10 that all 23 CSU campuses will operate online over their winter term.

UCLA will operate about 92% remotely for fall quarter. After Thanksgiving break, the few classes being taught in person will switch over to remote instruction. University housing is also operating at a reduced capacity, with about 700 students set to live on campus this fall.

As of Thursday, 211 members in the UCLA community have tested positive for COVID-19, according to UCLA’s COVID-19 tracker. UCLA will begin fall quarter instruction Oct. 1. Move in for university housing will begin Sept. 25.
