UCSC Covid-19 Testing Plans 09-22-20A 06:22 S.S.
With the fall quarter at U.C. – Santa Cruz scheduled to start in just over a week…..some students are moving back to campus. Only about 1,000 are slated to be on-campus, and pool testing (for Coivd-19) is slated to take place twice each week. Groups of people will be test, and if there’s a positive result then the school will work as quickly as possible to identify who has the virus and isolate that person on-campus. Students are being tested as they arrive and they are told to self-isolate for 14 days after that. Classes are scheduled to resume on October 1, but all but about 10 will be virtual.
