More UC campuses extend remote learning through Jan. 28

The University of California’s Irvine, Los Angeles and Riverside campuses announced they will extend remote learning by three more weeks amid a surge of Covid-19 cases in the state.

The three campuses previously planned to resume in-person classes on Jan. 18 but now won’t do so until Jan. 31. They were the latest campuses to extend online learning until that date after the San Diego, Santa Cruz and Davis campuses did the same Thursday.

“Since making the decision to start winter quarter with two weeks of remote instruction, we have watched COVID-19 case numbers climb rapidly in our region and state. Though the case positivity rate at UC Riverside remains well below the county and state rates, we remain committed to the health and safety of our community as our first priority,” UC Riverside Chancellor Kim Wilcox said in a statement.
