COVID-19 Policies

As the public health situation continues to evolve, UCBMUN will remain flexible in our policies to combat the spread of COVID-19. Based on current guidelines, we plan to hold our conference fully in-person this spring. Our COVID-19 policy will be finalized two weeks before the conference and sent out to all registered schools. We plan to follow CDC, the state of California, the City of San Francisco, University of California, Berkeley, and Hilton Financial Districts guidelines in order to best preserve the health and safety of staffers and delegates alike. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to secretarygeneral@ucbmun.org.
