Amid a worsening Omicron surge, four University of California campuses announced Thursday that they are extending remote instruction to the end of January. UC campuses at Irvine, Davis, Santa Cruz and San Diego, whose winter quarters began Jan. 3, said that rising positivity rates for coronavirus infections had compelled them to exercise extra caution and push back the start of in-person instruction to Jan. 31.
