Dear Campus Community,
A second student at UC Merced today reported symptoms consistent with COVID-19 and is awaiting test results. The student resides off campus and is practicing self-quarantine.
A student who reported symptoms earlier this week remains in self-quarantine and awaiting test results. We are not aware of any positive cases of COVID-19 in Merced County or at UC Merced at this time.
We remain committed to the health and safety of every member of our campus and will continue to provide updates as we have them.
Remember to maintain personal hygiene, and keep up to date with guidance from UC Merced, the University of California, the CDC and other credible sources of information at our COVID-19 Emergency Management site. And please take care of yourselves and those around you; our community remains our great source of strength.
