Daily Don's Health Check
All faculty and staff are required to complete the Don's Health Check each and every day that they are visiting the USF campus. Review the USF COVID Response Protocol for complete details on reporting exposure to or symptoms of COVID-19. UPDATE: All members of the community must wear masks indoors regardless of their vaccination status.
Anthem Blue Cross and Dignity Health Alert
Dignity Health’s agreement with Anthem Blue Cross has terminated effective July 15, 2021. As a result, Dignity Health will no longer be part of the Anthem Blue Cross Commercial Network. Review the notification for more information and the list of Dignity Health hospitals affected.
For a complete listing of alternate contracted facilities, please reference our website at www.anthem.com/ca. Please verify with both your provider and the Anthem Blue Cross’ website above that the alternate facility is participating in your benefit plan’s network.
NOTE: Anthem and Dignity Health will continue to negotiate for an agreement.
REMINDER! All members of the USF community, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear face coverings while indoors on campus. Information on where to get a face covering for those who may need one while working on campus is posted on USF Together. Questions or concerns can be directed to Human Resources.
Vaccination Requirements for Fall 2021
The University of San Francisco will require all undergraduate and graduate students to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for fall 2021. The requirement will go into effect at the start of the fall semester on Aug. 24. Learn more about the announcement here.
Staff and faculty are not required to be fully vaccinated but they are required to complete a vaccination attestation form by Aug. 24. Consistent with California guidelines, fully vaccinated employees are not required to wear face coverings on campus. Unvaccinated employees must wear face coverings indoors (or in vehicles) on campus unless working alone in a room or vehicle.
IMPORTANT: As vaccine distribution gains momentum, so does the topic of vaccines. Asking someone whether they’ve had their COVID vaccine or initiating a conversation related to COVID and their health would be in violation of the University’s confidentiality policy. We strongly recommend that everyone refrain from engaging in these personal health-related conversations.
