Torero BluePrint: USD's COVID-19 Campus Response and Action Plan

(Updated: November, 2020)

On Nov. 10, San Diego County announced a move to the most-restrictive level of California’s COVID-19 risk-ranking system, meaning that restaurants, houses of worship, movie theaters and other organizations must cease or significantly reduce their indoor operations by 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14.

The change in tier level is experienced by many as challenging, and it is our hope that all community members will prioritize their health, self-care and wellbeing. Please be sure to reach out to our Student Health Center or our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services if you have questions or concerns about your health or well-being.  This news comes near the end of the undergraduate semester and the start of final exams, and we recognize that these additional restrictions can cause stress and anxiety. Nevertheless, we are prepared and have plans in place to support our community through this transition while also doing our part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

In order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the university requires each person affiliated with the campus to inform us if they plan to be on campus or not, every day. If they plan to be on campus, they will then complete a brief daily health screening survey.

Students, faculty, staff and administrators who are not receiving the daily screening email should contact the COVID Support Team at and request to be added to the list. Please include your name, email address and 9-digit ID number from your Torero ID Card. Until you begin to receive the daily screening email, you may do the symptom screen in person at one of our campus temperature screening locations.

Please note that all information is subject to change based on county directives. We will continue to update the Torero BluePrint website with the latest information.
