UC Berkeley Chancellor Carol Christ and Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Paul Alivisatos have announced several updates to UC Berkeley’s response to the coronavirus (COVID-19): Remote instruction has been extended through the end of the semester. Students will be able to choose where it is best for them to reside. Students will receive relief from their campus housing and dining fees if they decide to move out. If in-person instruction resumes, in-person course attendance will continue to not be mandatory for the rest of the semester. Supervisors are encouraged to explore work assignments for students to perform remotely. Critical campus functions, including our research enterprise and student support services, remain operational, some with adjusted service hours.
