They are required to report their status to the PI, assigned supervisor of the lab, or contact for the class using the downloadable PDF form. They must fill it out and scan or take a picture of it, and then send it to both the PI, assigned supervisor, or class contact and to be-covid@eng.ucsd.edu. The form can be found here
