Dear Campus Community,
News about COVID-19, the new coronavirus, continues to evolve rapidly. Even if you are paying close attention, it can be difficult to keep up with the latest information, and to ensure that you are receiving news from credible sources.
In our ongoing effort to keep the campus community as informed as possible, I will be joined tomorrow by campus leaders in public safety, student affairs, academics and human resources for a live video conference to provide updates and answer your questions about COVID-19 and campus operations. The webinar, which will run from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 11, can be accessed here:
Or by telephone:

Webinar ID: 632 682 198
A recording of the webinar will be available following the event.
Members of the campus community are encouraged to submit questions in advance by emailing PR@ucmerced.edu. Questions may also be submitted anonymously using this form and will be monitored during the livestream.
We are looking forward to answering as many questions as we can about this very fluid situation. For the latest news and information, including previous campus announcements, please visit the COVID-19 page on our Emergency Management website . This page is routinely updated with news and campus communications, and it includes links to the Centers for Disease Control and other reliable sources of information.
In addition to Wednesday’s video conference, please rest assured that we are doing everything we can to proactively and transparently communicate the campus’s preparations and contingency plans, along with any significant updates from university leadership and county public health officials. Your safety is our utmost concern, and we will not hesitate to act if needed to ensure the health and well-being of our campus community.
