Alameda County reinstates mask mandate for indoor spaces, including Oakland
A version of this message was sent to UCOP employees on June 3, 2022.
Dear Oakland-based colleagues:
On June 3, Alameda County announced it was reinstating mandatory masking for indoor spaces. Accordingly, effective immediately, masks are required in our Franklin and Broadway offices. The requirement will remain in effect as long as the county requires it.
Colleagues with offices are not required to wear a mask when alone in their office with the door closed. Colleagues in open workstations are required to mask at their workstations and may use drop-in focus rooms or reserve an office or huddle room to close a door and take a break from masking.
As a reminder, approved masks include KN95, N95, or approved surgical masks (cloth face coverings do not qualify), and masks will continue to be available in both buildings.
Thank you for your continued flexibility and partnership, and please continue to take care of yourself. If you have questions, please email UCOP-COVID19-Response@ucop.edu.
Executive Director, UCOP Operations
