Interim Policy on Large Events and Gatherings.
Updated April 30, 2020 has been extended through June 30, 2021. We must support every action that helps to “flatten the curve” of new COVID-19 cases.
To limit the spread of COVID-19 in our workplace and Bay Area community – and to help hospitals and clinics manage the increase in demand for care – UCSF is taking the following actions:
- All non-essential events and gatherings – those involving 10 or more people – shall be cancelled or postponed, in accordance with the shelter in place order issued July 20, 2020 by the City and County of San Francisco.
- Event organizers must prioritize alternatives – such as teleconferencing – rather than hold in-person gatherings.
- Events and gatherings that are essential to the operation of UCSF, a healthcare institution, may be exempted. Please complete this form for guidance.
If you receive approval from the UCSF ROC (Recovery Operations Center,) please let us know and we can move forward with a reservation.
