Bobcats Back Together Again!
Vaccination rates continue to climb, up to 85% for all students, faculty and staff. We have posted our current statistics and will be updating this webpage with more historical trends and other information over the next few weeks. The Do Your Part site is also updated frequently with guidance for students, faculty and staff. If there are any general questions regarding COVID, start here.

As we have officially started our semester and we welcome students into our dorms, here is a general reminder of the key resources that exist on the DYP website:

Daily symptom monitoring is required for all, and is our first line of defense in preventing the transmission to others. Either respond to the email notification or download the application for your device.

Anyone exhibiting COVID symptoms is prohibited from participating in campus activities (except students who are coordinating health visits with Student Health or moving to an Isolation room).

Individuals who are not vaccinated are required to comply with the Non-pharmaceutical intervention measures. Please schedule your appointment accordingly.

Vaccinated individuals will be contacted by the COVID Response Center for their randomly selected asymptomatic test.

And finally, remember that we now require everyone, vaccinated or not, to wear a face covering inside any UC Merced property.

Lastly, we are prioritizing student experience through student events, all other events will be paused until Friday, October 1. Events will be evaluated after this date based on current conditions. Meetings are still permitted. See the university’s guidance document for details.

UC Merced’s Success Anywhere website supports student success by providing support, guidance, and resources that equip students to pursue their educational journey. This site serves as a hub for opportunities, programs and services that promote success for currently enrolled UC Merced students.

UC MERCED COVID-19 COMPLIANCE POLICIES

Your safety is our priority. Students are encouraged to Do Your Part by wearing face coverings, practice physical distancing, cleaning and additional measures that keep our community safe. We recognize that changes may occur rapidly in the pandemic environment, thus we may adjust our plans, policies, and protocols to meet those needs.

Current Policies, Directives, and Advisories:

Students allegedly violating the policies and/or directives will be adjudicated by hearing officers from the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities(OSRR) and/or Residence Education in accordance with their conduct process. Student conduct that occurs off university property and adversely affects the health, safety, or security of any member of the university community, or the mission of the university is subject to UC Merced Standards of Conduct and will be adjudicated by OSRR.

While individuals who witness violations may make a report, we all play a part in ensuring the health and safety of our community and as such we encourage you to remind members in a respectful and kind manner, to follow our safety practices. If you need additional resources, have questions, or witness a student violation, the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities is ready to help!
