Campus Updates: COVID and Mask Policy

To ensure the safety of our students, staff and instructors, OLLI in-person classes will adhere to the following University requirements:

  • As of March 19, masks will be strongly recommended but not required for vaccinated or unvaccinated people. UC Davis' current mask requirements are available on the Campus Ready website.
  • Complete the Daily Symptom Survey on the same day of each class before entering class to gain approved access to an OLLI in-person class. (NOTE: Please use the "Visitor" version of the survey.)
  • Be prepared to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test at the first session, or COVID test results each session when courses take place over multiple weeks (if unvaccinated).
  • For in-depth details, please continue to visit the OLLI blog.

What Keeps You up at Night?

Professor Joanna Chiu’s research at UC Davis focuses on the circadian clock and its control over physiology. Besides activities such as the sleep-wake cycle, locomotor activity, hormone circulation and food intake, defects in circadian rhythms and clock genes are also implicated in several disorders, including chronic sleep disorders, depression, metabolic syndromes, as well as susceptibility to cancer and drug/alcohol addiction.
