While it is essential for our community to uphold policies and practices to keep our community safe and healthy, we also know that being able to socialize safely is a basic need. You may look at the guidelines we’ve shared recently and think, “Great, but can we socialize at all during the pandemic while staying safe?”
The answer is absolutely yes. But we have to make allowances for current circumstances, using creativity and respect for health precautions.
We’ve posted a listing of many available activities that you can do while following health guidelines. Here are some key points:
Many of you have taken advantage of the good weather to be outside with friends. While it’s better to do activities outdoors than in confined indoor spaces, we all must continue to uphold the guidelines that apply to outdoor activities:
As always, please use the UCAIR reporting system if you have a COVID-19-related public health concern at any time. So far, one of the most common reports we’ve received through UCAIR is from people concerned about inadequate social distancing by students socializing outside. When you’re outdoors, please follow the guidelines and encourage others to do so.
Thank you for upholding our community’s public health requirements both on and off campus, and for showing care for each other during this challenging time.
