San Francisco Public Health Emergency Leave Ordinance (PHELO)

Effective October 1, 2022, San Francisco will have a permanent Public Health Emergency Leave Ordinance for employers in San Francisco.  Please see information here regarding this voter-approved requirement.

Our office is currently monitoring whether the proposed legislation extending CA COVID hours beyond September 30, 2022 will be signed by Governor Newsom and if so, how that will affect the new SF PHELO requirement. 

Information regarding SF PHELO and CA COVID hours status will be communicated as information is made available.

Healthcare Network Update, September 2, 2022

Anthem Blue Cross of California and Stanford Health have been engaged in negotiations to renew the terms of their contract. The parties have not reached a new agreement, which means that the contract expired on September 1, 2022, at 12:00 a.m. Both Anthem and Stanford Health will continue to negotiate in good faith in an effort to reach an agreement. Please visit the Benefits home page for complete details.

Monkeypox Advisory

In response to the rise in cases, San Francisco's mayor and public health officials declared a local emergency. All suspected monkeypox cases must be reported within one working day to the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) Communicable Disease Control. Your health care provider will ensure that happens. For our satellite campuses, additional information is available from the California Department of Public Health or through your county health services department.

Staff and faculty who feel ill should remain home and contact their health provider with any questions or concerns.

Please review the details of USF's response to the current global outbreak.
