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 protocol updates.

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.

This law expired on Sept. 30, 2021. For further details please visit the 2021 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave FAQ.

The University of San Francisco requires all undergraduate and graduate students to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for fall 2021. Faculty and staff are not required to be vaccinated at this time although it is highly recommended. Staff and faculty are required to complete a vaccine attestation form.  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. 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.

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

USF currently requires that all students, staff, faculty, and visitors wear masks when entering campus buildings. Review the city of San Francisco's current requirements.

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.
