UCLA is considered the number one public university and often boasts this fact. Yet despite the merits that would follow such a title, it has clearly shown, with recent defunding of part of services  for accessibility and now with the revoking of mandatory COVID testing for vaccinated students, that the university is holding back its efforts to protect students. New highly contagious variants of the coronavirus have been spreading throughout the country, and in an especially populated campus that plans to host regular in-person activity, regular testing for all students, including vaccinated students, will be crucial to preventing outbreaks. Other universities in the city are taking this precaution. The UC system must allocate the necessary resources to continuously keep students safe and mitigate the spread of the virus. Students traveling across campus will interact with many others, in buildings that may or may not follow ventilation standards, and travel to locations in the city that could be hotspots. Without regular testing the university is proving it is ill equipped to enforce helpful covid regulations, and will eventually be forced to manage a mass student quarantine.

To protect the physical, mental, and academic health of countless students who are relying on an in-person year of fully-priced instruction to help uplift their career, lifestyle, and community, mandatory weekly testing is the minimum requirement UCLA can provide all students to protect the Bruin community.
