Onward USD COVID-19 Campus Action Plan

(Updated: January, 2021)

The University of San Diego continues to update its COVID-19 Campus Action Plan based off of the guidelines provided by the State of California and County of San Diego. With a comprehensive and flexible plan in place, USD is well-positioned to address and respond to the urgent challenges of the pandemic, while continuing to provide the world-class education our students expect and deserve.

Our hope is that all of our 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.

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 and plan to visit campus should contact the COVID Support Team at covidsupport@sandiego.edu 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 Onward USD COVID-19 Campus Action Plan website with the latest information.
