Yolo County Public Health notified university staff on Feb. 29 that the UC Davis student who was quarantined and tested for COVID-19 had a negative result. The two other UC Davis students have also been notified and released from isolation.

Student Housing and Dining Services will maintain its intensified cleaning program.

The campus continues to recommend individuals practice proper handwashing and other good hygiene.

More information is available on the campus’s coronavirus web site.

Yolo County still recommends residents practice precautionary actions to prevent the further spread of respiratory diseases, such as washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, covering coughs and staying home if sick. Yolo County continues to implement strategies to educate residents, protect public health and collaborate with partners and healthcare systems.

On Feb. 27, Chancellor Gary S. May shared in an email to the campus community that three members of the campus community were in isolation, and UC Davis held an event to update news media about the campus response to the coronavirus.  

A video of that event can be downloaded here, and a transcript of the video recording is available online.
