Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some changes have been made to course delivery. Lectures for courses which were scheduled to be on-site may be delivered online for courses starting after January 1, 2022 in accordance with UCLA and public health guidance. Skills laboratories are conducted on-site following specific COVID precautions consistent with Los Angeles County Guidelines. Indoor masking will be highly recommended but no longer required for students who are up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations. It is strongly recommended that individuals wear a well-fitting mask, regardless of vaccination status, when indoors and/or in crowded settings. Those who are not up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations will continue to be required to wear a well-fitted mask indoors until further notice. Students are asked to only attend class if they are healthy and students will complete a UCLA Health Symptom Survey for each day they are on-site. Students who are enrolled in a course will receive updates via email from the Center or and their course instructor. Required precautions may change as the situation evolves.
COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement: The University of California requires all students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, including a booster dose, to access University facilities and programs. Students who cannot provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination may experience delays in clinical or field placement, extended completion times and the inability to meet course requirements for certification. Limited allowance for medical and religious exemption is reviewed with supporting documentation. Regardless of vaccination status, students may also be required to participate in periodic COVID-19 surveillance testing in accordance with UCLA and local public health guidance.
