UC Berkeley released an update to its fall 2022 COVID-19 mitigation measures Wednesday, a notable addition being vending machines providing free COVID-19 PCR tests on campus.

The update encouraged anyone who traveled in the past seven days or engaged in “high risk” activities to test themselves with the vending machine PCR tests or with at-home antigen tests.

Furthermore, students living in residence halls will be required to test themselves soon after arriving and report any positive results to University Health Services. Campus is providing over-the-counter rapid COVID-19 tests on students’ move-in days.

Campus has not implemented a mask mandate; however, it still recommends that students wear masks in indoor settings.
