Coronavirus (COVID-19)

USF Cases (4/4)

Student, employee and patient confidentiality laws prevent USF from disclosing the names of individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19. Per state and federal guidelines, any individual who has tested positive will be isolated. Any individuals who have concerns about their health are encouraged to work with the appropriate medical professionals and follow guidance from the Florida Department of Health and U.S. Centers for Disease Control. USF will provide updates to the community when the university is informed of a positive case. However, please be aware that if a student, employee or the health department fails to disclose a positive test to the university, USF may have no way of knowing and communicating that information.
