Face Coverings are required while on campus. Staff/Faculty may request a face covering from EH&S. Students may request a face covering from The Well.


Face Covering Request


Combined with physical distancing, washing hands, and staying home when ill, face coverings help to limit the transmission of COVID-19 by minimizing droplet transmission when a person talks, coughs, or sneezes. Face coverings should have two or more layers of washable, breathable materials, completely cover the nose and mouth, and fit snugly against the sides of your face and don't have gaps. Face coverings should not have exhalation valves or vents, which allow virus particles to escape, and should not be intended for respiratory protection. For healthcare workers or employees requiring respiratory protection, visit EH&S Respiratory Protection Program.   

To adhere to state, local, and UC requirements, face coverings that cover the nose and mouth are required for all personnel while on the UCR campus.

  • Personnel are required to wear their face covering indoors at all times, even if they are alone within a space.
  • Personnel walking or working alone outdoors must have a face covering with them and put on the face covering if they come within 6 feet of other individuals not living in the same household.

In order to assist the UCR community to adhere to the face covering requirements, EH&S is providing face coverings for UCR personnel.  Individuals should review the options and availability for face coverings below and submit a request for the appropriate number.  Individuals can choose any combination of face coverings.  A maximum of one of each type per person will be provided.
