In case you missed it, last week the Provost provided updates regarding remote work for the fall semester. Of particular interest to employees:

  • With the recent decline in COVID-19 cases in the Los Angeles area, the county has officially entered the red tier of California’s reopening framework. This change enables us to accelerate our efforts to return to in-person activities.
  • Under the red tier status, we are now able to take some steps for the remainder of spring and into summer.
  • We plan to resume a normal range of campus activities in the fall, though with some measures to reduce density where needed.
  • While Los Angeles County is likely to lift the work-from-home health recommendations by the fall, we have learned a great deal about our ability to work remotely over the past year. We will review what balance can be drawn between on-site and remote work and will share more about the university’s fall plans in the coming months.
