Do full-time remote employees need to comply with the UC vaccine mandate?
Employees who work remotely full time must be in compliance with the UC vaccine mandate in order to come to the UCR campus or a UCR owned or operated facility. Employees will be in compliance if they provide proof of COVID-19 vaccine or are approved for an exemption. Full-time remote employees not in compliance are not permitted on campus. Once in compliance, all employees must complete the Daily Wellness Check prior to coming to campus.
