UC San Diego forges ahead with plan to bounce back from damaging days of COVID-19

UCSD’s anti-COVID campaign has given it the confidence to slowly start opening the campus more broadly, and to quickly build what it needs to handle upwards of 41,000 students.  The university also believes that the COVID-19 vaccination program that will start nationwide next week will vanquish the virus, making this the ideal moment to reinvigorate a school that — like others — has mostly been operating online since March.
