IMPORTANT REMINDER: Mask Amidst COVID-19 Spike

Dear BSC Members,

The COVID-19 Action Team has received reports of 30+ COVID-19 positive cases within the BSC, which has been an unprecedented amount of cases within a relatively short period of time. In order for the ERT to properly assist in aiding the effort against COVID-19, we encourage members to fill out this survey, which will assist the ERT in revising COVID-19 policies in the future (based on the majority of members’ views on the pandemic, and the BSC’s current policies). With that in mind, we would like to remind students of the following resources:

Testing Information and Resources:

  • If possible, please get tested once you arrive back at UC Berkeley. Many of your BSC peers are going to be taking final exams soon, and it would suck if they got sick right before finals. Testing is free for all students, and only takes a couple of minutes of your time. Thank you for doing your part in keeping the BSC (and UC Berkeley students as a whole) safe, happy and healthy!

Covid Booster Shots:

  • Johnson and Johnson Booster Shot:
  • It is recommended that you get a booster shot 2 months after your initial dose of the vaccine
  • Moderna and Pfizer Booster Shots:

How to contact the COVID-19 Action Team if you tested positive for COVID-19

  • Email COVID-19 Action Team at covid@bsc.coop. We will respond within two hours.
  • If you don’t hear back within 24 hours and it is urgent, contact Central Office during business hours (M–F 10pm–5pm) at (510) 848-1936 and ask to speak with Chris Kelley

Once again, please continue to mask indoors out of respect for your peers, and to minimize the spread of COVID-19. If you have any questions about this email, please contact the ERT at ert@bsc.coop.

As always, stay safe, happy and healthy.

-Emergency Response Team
