Psychological Services Center Operations in Response to COVID-19

As we all know, COVID-19 has caused disruption of services, both nationally and locally.  The University of South Florida Psychological Services Center continues to be closed for in-person services until further notice due to Campus COVID-19 Precautions. We may, however, accept a limited number of clients for telehealth services during these times. Please feel free to check on our current status by calling us at (813) 974-2496.

We hope to be back in full on-site operation as soon as possible but will provide updates on that possibility as we receive further word from USF Administration.

Please take all necessary precautions to protect your health and prevent the spread of illness, coronavirus or otherwise. 

The CDC recommends:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid hand shaking or other contact greetings and sharing objects such as pens.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the trash. Do not allow the tissue to touch other surfaces.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Monitor your symptoms. For COVID-19, these include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. CDC estimates that symptoms appear 2 - 14 days after exposure.
  • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
  • Lots more information is available on the CDC website.
  • Stay home when you are sick!
