Flu shots: Davis campus
- Per executive order from the Office of the President (as revised Sept. 29) — “Effective Nov. 1, 2020, all students, faculty and staff living, learning or working on premises at any UC location must receive a flu vaccine, unless they receive an approved medical exemption or disability or religious accommodation.” UC strongly encourages all other members of the campus community — and their families — to get the flu vaccination.
- Updated FAQs — For employees and students.
- Exemptions and accommodations — Start the process by talking with your supervisor.
- Reporting your vaccination — A single flu vaccination question will return to the Daily Symptom Survey on Nov. 16. Faculty, staff and students who have not been vaccinated, or who do not have an approved exemption, may not enter UC Davis facilities beginning Nov. 16. Students can continue to report their flu vaccination as explained on the Campus Ready flu vaccination page.
- UC Davis Health has its own flu vaccination requirement and reporting system.
- “Return to Campus” eLearning course — Any employees who are now working on campus, or plan to work on campus before January 2021 — including academic, staff and student employees — should have completed this course by Sept. 25. All other employees, regardless of their remote work status, are required to complete the training by Dec. 15. [UC Davis Health employees at the Sacramento campus are exempt, as they have their own training materials.]

Outdoors, you must keep your face coverings on when 6 feet of distancing from others is not feasible.
- Gatherings — The campus does not permit any gatherings on campus and strongly discourages gatherings off campus.
- Campus Ready
UC Davis WarnMe and Aggie Alert messages provide timely information and instructions to faculty, staff, students and others when their well-being may be directly affected by emergencies or other urgent situations. WarnMe messages and Aggie Alerts are distributed by email and text message and also posted to UC Davis’ Facebook and Twitter accounts. Tests are scheduled three times during each academic year.
- Next WarnMe test — Noon Wednesday, April 28, Davis and Sacramento campuses.
- Please review your contact information and update as needed.
- Employee and student contact information — Your UC Davis email addresses are included in the WarnMe system automatically; you can add mobile numbers and other email addresses.
- Parents, vendors, contractors and others — You can sign up for text notifications only for the Davis campus and three other university locations (Bodega Marine Laboratory, Tahoe Environmental Research Center, and Continuing and Professional Education). See sign-up information here.
- Mobile app (limited to people with UC Davis email addresses) — The app includes a number of safety features and is an important option for UC Davis affiliates with international phone numbers, as WarnMe does not send text messages to international numbers. Learn more about the Everbridge Mobile App and how to download it.

Blood and marrow drives
- Blood and-or marrow drives will be posted here when announced.
- Read Chancellor Gary S. May’s statement welcoming blood drives on campus, while also asserting: UC Davis strongly supports the development of evidence-based policies that would allow blood donations from all who are safely able to give, and stands strongly against all forms of discrimination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation.
The Big Shift is the campuswide heating system conversion project, whereby steam lines are being replaced with hot water lines. Heat exchangers in buildings will draw heat off the hot water, to heat the buildings, just like we do now with steam. The hot water system will use electricity (a renewable resource) to heat the water, instead of natural gas, a fossil fuel, that is used in the steam system. The hot water system will use less energy, because the water need not be heated to boiling (for steam), and will be safer to maintain. Current road and path closures are listed here, along with other project links:
- Road closures, through May 14 — California Avenue between Hutchison Drive and Shields Avenue, Hutchison between Kleiber Hall Drive and California, and Bioletti Way between Hutchison and Tercero Hall Circle. See map for vehicle and bike detours.

- Prohibition on political campaign intervention — The University of California strongly supports public and civic engagement by members of the university community, in both their professional and personal capacities. At the same time, we must adhere to the restrictions outlined in this advisory from the Office of General Counsel.
