Per UC Davis Chancellor Gary S. May’s announcement on 2/17/23 (below), UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education is ending Interim Public Health Policy 290-01 and use of the Daily Symptom Survey.
Like the state, which intends to end its COVID-19 state of emergency February 28, we are also turning to a new chapter in the pandemic.
While we still have infections in our community, the impact on our lives is much different from when the pandemic started three years ago. Disease prevention has shifted in that time from public health requirements to individual responsibility. Through vaccination and improved treatments, people can manage exposure based on personal risk, as we do for the flu and other respiratory-borne illnesses.
Therefore, the Davis campus will end both its Interim Public Health Policy 290-01, which aligns with current county, state and federal guidance to reduce the spread of COVID on property owned or leased by UC Davis, and the Daily Symptom Survey, effective February 28. Still, we strongly encourage you to report positive cases of COVID-19, and we ask you to please continue to test.
