The UCSB COVID-19 Call Center at (805) 893-3113 is now operational weekdays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., working with the UCSB COVID-19 Response Team to assist our students, faculty, and staff to obtain answers for their questions related to COVID-19 health issues and other campus changes that have resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The email address ucsb-covid19@ucsb.edu can also be used for these same purposes.

The COVID-19 Call Center will assist callers to find the correct resource for questions related to the campus COVID Response including medical needs, COVID-19 testing, campus housing, class registration, etc. and refer them to the proper offices and websites, along with receiving reports of positive COVID-19 cases and referring them to the campus COVID-19 case investigators. 

The COVID-19 Call Center is managed by Betsy Malear, MS, RDN and staffed by non-medical staff, who are working together with the UCSB COVID-19 Response Team which includes Drs. Laura Polito, Holly Smith, RN, Dr. Elizabeth Toro, and licensed nurses and other staff to conduct campus COVID-19 testing, and to quickly identify positive cases and exposed close contacts in the UCSB community in order to control spread of the disease.
