5:44 p.m., April 2: Summer session A will be remote learning
To help protect the health and safety of the entire Bruin community while remaining committed to fulfilling UCLA’s teaching mission, campus leaders have decided to offer remote instruction for Summer Session A, which starts June 22 and ends Aug. 28. Note though that start and end dates for Summer Session A can vary based on the program student is enrolled in.
A decision has not been made for Summer Session C, which starts Aug. 3, However, faculty are strongly advised to begin planning how remote teaching would impact Session C courses given the possibility that the public health situation may require converting Session C to remote instruction.
Based on the unique learning needs of some academic units, we are deferring a decision for Session A courses and programs, and other summer programs, offered by the schools of nursing, medicine and dentistry, and by UCLA Extension.

How do I prevent the spread of COVID-19?
Public health officials recommend the following steps to prevent the spread of all respiratory viruses, including influenza and COVID-19.
- Wash your hands frequently and for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Cough into your elbow or a tissue and not your hands. Dispose of the tissue.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Practice healthy habits: Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat nutritious food.
How does maintaining a “safe distance” from other people help prevent the disease from spreading? And what is a “safe distance”?
The best way to limit the spread of COVID-19 or any contagious disease, according to health experts, is to maintain a safe distance from other people. Remaining six feet away from others, wherever possible, can help prevent infections transmitted by an uncovered cough or sneeze and also by touching a contaminated surface. Avoiding large groups in crowded spaces is a scientifically proven way to lower the infection risk and the spread of a virus.
