Coronavirus Updates and Resources
Human Resources is here to help staff and faculty navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. This resource page provides links to general pandemic-related guidance, relevant benefits information, and updates related to the return to campus for fall 2021.
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: USF now requires that everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear face coverings indoors for the foreseeable future.
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 policy here. UPDATE: All members of the USF community must wear a face covering indoors regardless of their vaccination status.
IMPORTANT: As vaccine distribution gains momentum, so does the topic of vaccines. It can be difficult to not be overwhelmed with data and information specifically related to the COVID vaccine. In fact, it’s become so mainstream that it has become part of our everyday conversations. This often results in someone asking, did you get your vaccine? These types of conversations shouldn’t take place with your colleagues. 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.
Reopening the University of San Francisco (USF), in a safe manner, for the Fall 2021semester is one of USF’s top priorities. In order to support USF’s overall reopening
efforts, USF Facilities Management is publishing this Reopening Guide to inform the University’s community about what Facilities Management is doing to assure a safe and smooth reopening.
In accordance with the latest guidance of local and state authorities regarding travel, USF is amending travel restrictions on university-sponsored travel to allow for a limited resumption of essential travel. Please visit the USF Together Travel page for complete details and additional updates.
