On May 26, 2020 UCLA Vice Chancellor for Research, Dr. Roger Wakimoto announced plans for resuming UCLA research activities.

UCLA began Phase 2 of the ramp-up plan on June 8, 2020

Researchers who were required to pause in person research activities in response to March 2020 research ramp down requirements must comply with the requirements outlined in the May 26, 2020 Research Ramp-Up Plan before recommencing in person research activities.

See UCLA Research Ramp Up website for details including:

  1. an overview of the ramp-up process,
  2. health and safety guidelines, and
  3. appendices describing requirements for different types of research.
