The UC Davis campus remains empty after a shelter-in-place protocol was called by Gov. Gavin Newsom due to the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The campus is covered in signs that encourage citizens to practice social distancing and wash their hands. As you walk around campus, you will see multiple hand-washing stations encouraging sanitation.
