Masking in Healthcare Settings

Beginning April 3, 2023, masks will no longer be required for asymptomatic patients, guests, visitors, vendors or staff at all UCR Health locations. Symptomatic patients must wear a mask as will healthcare professionals who provide care for these individuals. Masking will continue to be encouraged for all individuals.

For individuals who are COVID-19 positive and returning from isolation, or who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, face coverings may be required for a limited duration.

Face coverings will continue to be available on campus for students and employees.
