As information regarding coronavirus and its disease, COVID-19, continues to evolve we will keep you informed of the latest from University of California public health officials, governmental entities and others.
In the wake of Gov. Newsom’s "stay at home" order on March 16, UC Merced has strongly encouraged all students to return to their permanent residences who can safely do so. The university remains open and we are delivering courses remotely for the rest of the semester; research will be largely put on hiatus.
The University of California, Merced, is coordinating with Merced County Department of Public Health and Office of Emergency Services, as well as other health authorities, to share information, take preventative steps and focus on the well-being of our community. Updates will be made to this page as they become available.
