UC campuses mandate COVID boosters, some announce remote learning after winter break

COVID-19 booster shots will be required for all eligible students and staff at University of California campuses, and chancellors were told Tuesday to come up with plans for a safe return from winter break that could include remote instruction, as coronavirus cases increase throughout the state due to the highly infectious Omicron variant.

UC Irvine, UC Santa Cruz and UC San Diego have already announced a two-week delay to in-person classes after winter break.
