We hope to safely open and provide priority access to students starting on November 1. Faculty and staff members may return on December 1. This staggered timing will allow us to appropriately assess the COVID-19 trends in our community before expanding services and access to each additional group. Prior to entry, patrons will need to complete the UC Davis Daily Symptom Survey. The survey asks yes/no questions regarding your possible COVID-19 exposure. 

Please note that this phasing plan is pending final approval from Yolo County Public Health. Should Yolo County shift back to purple tier status after reopening, the Craft Center will be required to close in-person operations at that time.  

The Craft Center will focus on online content for the Fall. We encourage you to visit our Facebook page where we will make announcements about Craft Center Zoom classes, tool lending information, and video tutorials. We are happy to have taken the first step for reopening for in person participation and are excited to begin welcoming all of you back.
