The first priority of the MVZ is to ensure the health and safety of its faculty, staff, students and supporters amidst the COVID-19 outbreak. We are currently under a “shelter-in-place” order from Alameda County, and as such we will not be holding any events (MVZ Lunch seminars, social hours, or CalDay) until further notice. This includes collection activities such as hosting visitors or responding to any loan requests. We are working remotely to the fullest extent possible and maintaining the collections with the minimal level of essential staff. We will follow the Alameda County Public Health Department updates and recommendations along with UC Berkeley’s coronavirus rules. Stay tuned for updates, and stay healthy!
