Parent & Visitor FAQ's

  • How is UCR responding to COVID-19?

    The university is in Phase 2 of it's COVID-19 response. 

    University leadership is working with the UC Office of the President, Riverside County Public Health, our fellow UC campuses, clinical partners, and elected officials to monitor the situation, ensure all appropriate precautions are taken, and respond quickly and effectively as matters arise. 

  • May UCR quarantine or isolate students who were possibly exposed to, or who have contracted, COVID-19?

    Yes. UC enacted a Policy on Safeguards, Security and Emergency Management in January 2006 that contemplates the need for chancellors to take extraordinary measures in the event of “a natural or man-made disaster, a civil disorder which poses a threat of serious injury to persons or damage to property,” or other “seriously disruptive events.”8 Pursuant to this policy, UC may take appropriate steps to protect the health and safety of its students in the face of a known serious health crisis like a serious outbreak or pandemic.

  • How is UCR disinfecting surfaces?

    UCR is taking extensive measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Examples include:

    - Deployed hand sanitizers in university-owned housing and dining areas;

    - Began using a new CDC-approved chemical disinfectant, after review and approval by Environmental Health and Safety, across the campus;

    - Increased cleaning in university-owned housing of high-touch areas including lobbies, lounges, restrooms, and elevators; and 

    - Increased cleaning in campus General Assignment classrooms and adjacent restrooms.
