Do I have to wear a mask in class?

Face coverings strongly recommended at the Silicon Valley Campus

July 22, 2021—UCSC Silicon Valley Campus joins numerous California counties in strongly recommending the wearing of face coverings indoors regardless of vaccination status.

This comes as we face an increasing number of COVID-19 cases in our county and the spread of the very infectious Delta variant. In light of this guidance, we recommend that everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear a face covering when visiting us in Santa Clara.

Thank you all for doing your part to support the health and well-being of our university community.
