Occupancy App For COVID19

It would even indicate which level of the garage had parking. Creating a similar tool for personnel occupancy would reveal whether the building with an on-campus employee’s private/nonshared office was at 25% occupancy or not & therefore safe to enter.

In addition, UCSD’s Canyonview swimming pool has a pool lane reservation system in which people can reserve a pool lane up to 72 hours prior to when they want to swim. It’s very similar to the system I used to reserve my racquetball courts & the system I used to reserve McGill 1350 for data collection (https://psychology.ucsd.edu/about/resources/instruction/room-calendars.html).

By the numbers → if each floor of a three-story building can fit 60, then limiting each floor to 15 = 45 total = 25%

An app/website of that nature would facilitate greater safety regarding adherence to occupancy.



Jarryd: “a doorknob may be a carrier [fomites] but he’s not infected because he’s just a doorknob, just as someone vaccinated may be a carrier but show no indications of illness related to the infection thanks to the vaccine”

Recommended CDC Travel Guidelines

The CDC released an updated travel guidance for fully vaccinated individuals on April 2nd.

UCSD Travel Policy Update

Domestic Travel. Fully vaccinated people can travel within the United States and do not need COVID-19 testing or post-travel self-quarantine as long as they continue to take COVID-19 precautions while traveling — wearing a mask, avoiding crowds, socially distancing, and washing hands frequently.

UC San Diego Employee Travel

The interim UC San Diego Travel Policy Related to the Coronavirus Outbreak has been rescinded and all UC San Diego employees are directed to follow the CDC Guidance before, during and upon return from travel. Restrictions on travel for UC San Diego employees have been removed. It is strongly recommended to continue to book official university travel through the UC San Diego travel system, Concur, in order for travelers to receive critical information about their destinations, automatically register for UC’s Traveler Insurance, protect travel funds and facilitate efficient trip reconciliation upon return. Guidance on booking in Concur is available on Blink.

  • People who are fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine can travel safely within the United States:
    - Fully vaccinated travelers do not need to get tested before or after travel unless their destination requires it
    - Fully vaccinated travelers do not need to self-quarantine

Immunity Via Vaccination is Better (and Safer) Than Immunity Via Recovery From Infection

Vaccines train our immune system to recognize the targeted virus and create antibodies to fight off the disease without getting the disease itself. After vaccination, the body is ready to fight the virus if it is later exposed to it, thereby preventing illness.
