Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Updated COVID-19 Guidance

Dear USF faculty, staff and students,

The University of South Florida is grateful for the enormous efforts of state leadership to provide ample opportunities for all Florida residents to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccines are now widely available through many sites on and off campus. With this in mind, USF expects that faculty, staff and students will take advantage of these opportunities to protect themselves and the rest of our community as we look forward to more normalcy on our campuses in the weeks to come.

In light of this effort, USF will continue to follow direction from the Board of Governors and guidance from the CDC in relation to face coverings. On Thursday, May 13, the CDC announced they no longer recommend face coverings indoors or outdoors for fully vaccinated individuals. Face coverings are recommended for those not fully vaccinated.

Thank you for your ongoing compassion, resilience and patience as we navigate our safe return together.
