Campus leaders provided an update on UC Berkeley’s plans for the spring semester, including new booster and testing requirements.

  • Faculty, staff and students are required to get a booster shot as soon as they are eligible.
  • We expect everyone to get tested before returning to work, study or live on campus.
  • The expert consensus is that face coverings effectively reduce transmission and will continue to be required.
  • We’re continuing to plan for fully in-person instruction in the spring.
  • We also presently plan to continue to permit in-person events to the extent consistent with CDC guidance and state and city health department requirements.
