Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Capsid Consulting has partnered with USF to help navigate the ever changing and often state and city specific guidelines/mandates with the common goals of keeping students, faculty and staff safe. As the CDC recently pointed out we are entering a new phase of the pandemic but with the wide availability of vaccines, treatments and underlying immunity what does this mean as we move forward? With other public health outbreaks like monkey pox, - 30,000 cases worldwide and counting - and the first reported case of paralytic polio in the United States in over a decade it can seem overwhelming so what do we know? Join Capsid Consulting for a Q&A session to have your Infectious Disease questions answered.

USF will continue to require masks indoors in campus buildings, with the exception of the Koret Health and Recreation Center (where masks are highly encouraged). Being up to date with vaccinations is still the best protection.

USF is required to establish and implement an effective written COVID-19 Prevention Program (CPP) pursuant to an Emergency Temporary Standard in place for COVID-19 (California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 8, section 3205(c)).

COVID-19 Prevention Plan

SB 114 went into effect on Feb. 19, 2022, and is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2022. For further details please visit the 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave FAQ.

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. University employees are no longer required to be vaccinated in order to travel on university business. Read the policy.
