OC colleges respond to omicron variant

As Omicron replaces Delta as the dominant COVID variant, Cal State Fullerton, University of California, Irvine and Chapman University have reported returning to remote instruction for indefinite amounts of time and cancelling on-campus events. … UC Irvine announced Thursday a revision to its face covering policy to align with Cal/OSHA’s latest standards. The new policy requires anyone who is indoors on university-controlled property to wear a face covering that doesn’t let light pass through when held up to a light source.
