Privacy Reminder

The University of San Francisco strives at all times to respect the privacy and medical confidentiality of our community members who have tested positive for COVID-19. While it is understandable to be concerned and seek details about possible exposure from peers or colleagues who are infected, it is important to remember:

  • Except for a small number of resident students and essential personnel, our campus has been dispersed since early March 2020, greatly reducing the risk of transmission.
  • Confirmed cases do not always indicate active infections. Many individuals who have tested positive have already recovered or are in the process of recovering.
  • The public health department in a person’s county of residence determines who, if anyone, must be contacted regarding potential exposure to COVID-19, based on current guidelines. For San Francisco, guidelines can be found on the San Francisco Department of Public Health website.
