The university is working to establish a rapid screening and testing program on campus. Currently, the testing program is eligible to UC Davis students living in on-campus housing, living at The Green, student firefighters and EMTs that live on campus, and students living in Sorority or Fraternity houses.

They expect to test students on at least a weekly basis through the quarter.

All lectures and discussion classes are being held virtually for undergraduate students, the university’s website states, though there will be a limited number of in-person classes with educational objectives that can only be met through in-person instruction.”
