Be safe and enjoy your Thanksgiving! Mask reminder; early release tomorrow
Mask requirements reminder
COVID cases are on the rise again. While we continue to resume in-person activities, please be sure to follow mask requirements while at work or engaged in UC ANR activities. Persons who are not fully vaccinated for COVID-19 must wear a mask when working indoors or when sharing a vehicle for work. At locations in counties that are experiencing substantial or high transmission of COVID-19 (based on the CDC COVID data tracker), all persons must wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. At locations in counties which are subject to a state or local Public Health Order that requires all persons to wear a mask indoors, all persons must comply with health orders while engaged in UC ANR work or other activities. Review the full requirements here. Please also ensure that photos or videos depicting UC ANR work, activities or gatherings demonstrate adherence to mask guidance.
Early release tomorrow
Wishing everyone a happy, safe, and restful Thanksgiving! I am grateful for your hard work.
At each department head's discretion, I encourage those whose work commitments permit an early release to begin their long holiday weekend at 3 p.m. tomorrow. As always, supervisors should determine the best approach to meet business needs during business hours and ensure that timecards reflect time worked.
Thank you for everything you do to make UC ANR effective at delivering our mission. Thanks to your efforts, our research, extension, and programs are better able to serve California's needs. Have a wonderful long weekend filled with good things. Happy Thanksgiving!
