Daily Symptom Survey

Keeping our community safe and healthy will require patience, consideration and empathy. We know Graduate School of Management community members are up for the challenge. Welcome to a new academic year.

FAll 2020 Instruction – September 8, 2020

Fall instruction is scheduled to be in-person and remote. If allowed by campus, county and state guidelines, we will have in-person classes. Currently, all guidelines prohibit in-person instruction due to the county being in a Widespread tier according to the state restrictions on reopening non-essential indoor business operations. The GSM is operating at a Red Status: Suspended Operations due to this restrictions. We will provide updates weekly.

Sacramento Campus COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

Welcome to UC Davis Graduate School of Management. In collaboration with central campus and adhering to Sacramento County and state guidelines, we have established the following protocol for your safety and safety of the community. 

Entering the Building

Before you arrive at the Sacramento campus, please candidly assess how you are feeling. DO NOT COME TO CAMPUS IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING WELL. Err on the side of caution. Your instructors and GSM leaders will not penalize you for staying home.

While on campus, we expect you to follow these guidelines:

  • Wear a face covering at all times.
  • Maintain social distancing of six feet from other individuals.
  • A Daily Symptom survey, which you will complete via a smartphone app.
  • Wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer. The GSM is providing the use of hand sanitizer upon entry to the building as well as providing hand sanitizing stations throughout the building for your convenience.
  • Stay home if you are sick.

Building Hours for Faculty, Staff and Students

Faculty, staff and students have access to the Education Building via your access badge. Entrance will only be allowed at the Rotunda entrance doors across from the library, all other doors will be locked. The building will be closed to the public. If you are not following the posted guidelines while in the building, you may be asked to leave.


As of September 1, 2020, Graduate School of Management classes are being delivered remotely until further notice. In order to prioritize student study spaces for our cleaning and disinfecting efforts, at this time, classrooms are closed and unavailable for use.


Please be considerate. Wash your hands thoroughly. Try to avoid using handles in the restroom spaces. The restrooms will be disinfected and cleaned frequently. Please maintain 6 ft. social distancing.

Shared Spaces

Please do not congregate in the interior corridors. You will see that casual seating throughout the building has been removed. All of these barriers are there to keep our community safe and healthy. Please do not ignore or tamper with them.

We encourage you to take conversations outside the building. Fresh air and additional space for social distancing create a safer environment for discussion.
