Face Coverings

Re: Face Coverings
To: All campus
June 18, 2020
 
Gov. Gavin Newsom today ordered all Californians to wear face coverings when outside of their homes or personal spaces, like an office, or when physical distancing is not possible. To assist our community in maintaining safe practices, UC Merced’s Emergency Operations Center will expand hours for distributing face coverings.
 
Beginning June 19, 2020, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, the box office in COB1 will be open for students, staff and faculty with a Cat Card to receive up to two face coverings. Those who had initially picked up only one face covering will be able to pick up a second. Similar distribution locations will be opened up as demand and operations on campus expand.
 
Students, staff and faculty with damaged campus-issued face coverings may return them for a replacement. A temporary face covering can be obtained from the box office for those who forget their coverings. As supplies are limited, only one temporary face covering will be provided per person, per week.
 
Please take note of UC Merced’s interim guidelines for wearing face coverings and maintaining physical distance. It’s on all of us to do our part to keep our community safe.
