COVID-19 Department Updates
Dear Faculty and Students:
Due to COVID-19 precautions, UCLA has transitioned to remote learning through Summer 2021. Guidance on Fall 2021 can be found on the UCLA’s COVID-19 website.
The UCLA Department of Spanish & Portuguese staff is working remotely. During this period, we encourage you to email staff during regular business hours. We are also available for calls or virtual meetings but kindly ask for you to email us to set up a time in advance. You may also leave us a message on our office line that forwards to our email and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience.
The facts related to COVID-19 are changing rapidly, so please routinely check with UCLA information sources for updates. The most up-to-date information can be found online at UCLA’s COVID-19 website, and emergency updates and resources are always available at Bruins Safe Online.
Visiting campus or your office is for essential services only. If you need to visit your office or go to campus, please send an email request with the date and time of your proposed visit at least 2-3 business days prior to the requested visit to Chief Administrative Officer Kristina Magpayo Nyden at firstname.lastname@example.org, who will provide further information in this regard.
