Alameda County has issued a new public health order requiring that masks be worn in most indoor locations beginning Friday, June 3. Because the city of Berkeley has its own public health jurisdiction, this order does not apply to the city of Berkeley and the UC Berkeley campus. In accordance with CDC and city recommendations, UC Berkeley continues to strongly recommend that masks be worn indoors.

About EHS 207 Guidelines on Protecting Workers from COVID-19
UC Berkeley has updated its COVID-19 safety training course with additional information required by the COVID-19 prevention emergency regulation (8 CCR 3205), which was readopted with changes on 4/22/2022. This training also reflects updated University of California policies to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 in the workplace.
The required online training is designed to reduce the risk of UC Berkeley employees getting COVID-19 while working on campus during the coronavirus pandemic.
Tuesday, May 10, 2022 - 9:30 a.m.As of Friday, May 6, completing the Daily Symptom Screener is no longer required. Instead, you are required to self-assess your symptoms each day before coming to campus.
You should not come to campus if you have had any new and unusual symptoms of COVID-19 (not attributed to a previously known medical condition) in the last 24 hours. Please also refer to the contact tracing and close exposures page for additional guidance.
Along with the Daily Symptom Screener, the Campus Access Badge is no longer required. Both tools will be preserved in case it is necessary to bring them back into use in the future.
