As California begins to relax public health regulations following its June 15 reopening, UC Berkeley announced a lift on restrictions on student organization gatherings Tuesday.

Student organizations may now hold in-person gatherings both on and off campus, according to an email from Samuel Santos Jr., assistant vice chancellor for student engagement. In fall 2020, campus revised its Code of Student Conduct to prohibit in-person gatherings in line with public health regulations.

The revised Temporary Provisions still require students to wear face coverings in indoor and outdoor settings on campus, the email adds. Campus will continue to revise and announce further details on the guidance and the return to campus in the fall, the email notes.

“We anticipate that face coverings and physical distancing may not generally be required for vaccinated students, and that those students who are vaccinated may gather with other students,” the email reads.

Student employees previously working remotely may return to on-site work beginning June 16, according to the email. The email also reminded students that the UC-wide vaccine mandate will take effect Aug. 4 and detailed procedures regarding exemptions and vaccine verification.
