What if you get paid by staying at home? A university in California gives away $75 staycation grant to students.

Despite the circumstances, it is imperative that students stay at home this time of pandemic. It’s true that some people still do not take COVID-19 seriously and go on about their lives as if it’s last year’s news but with the recent happenings, staying at home it still the best course of prevention.

Keeping the safety of the students in mind, the University of California Davis announced their “staycation grant” so that the students would stay at home this spring break. UC Davis Chancellor Gary S. May said in part of his announcement that staying at home would be a part of the efforts the students could do to prevent the spread of the virus.

There are four type of grants the students can avail at local Davis businesses: “Get Artsy, Home Improvement, Get Active and Let’s Stay In.” These are for spring break March 22 to March 24.

According to Washington Post, there are requirements to be able to get the grant, (1) they have to be fully-enrolled, (2) they are living within the Campus dorms, (3) stay at Campus for the duration of spring break and (4) to have a COVID test during the period.

2,000 students have enrolled for the grant getting positive responses from the students. According to Melissa Lutz Bloutin, UC Davis’ director of media relations, there are about 40,032 students enrolled and 5,900 students living on campus.

Sheri Atkinson, the university’s associate vice chancellor see this as an opportunity to encourage students to reconsider their travel plans this spring break. It would greatly help reduce the surge of Covid-19 patients.

Nevertheless, various schools and establishments are making an effort to promote safe Covid-19 practices and encourage their students or employees to stay at home. No matter how small or how simple the act is, the university is helping in a great way to contribute in the safety of the citizens in California.
