Student Health Services will be conducting the health screening in Holly J between 9 AM and 5 PM on June 25, 2021.The health screening will consist of questions related to symptoms of COVID-19 and a student’s risk for becoming infected with the COVID-19 virus. Some students may be required to schedule a COVID-19 test for a future date.

When students arrive to check-in, we advise they bring the following items with them to facilitate the health screening:

  • A photo identification. USF ID, driver’s license or passport can be used.
  • Hand sanitizer
  • A paper copy of any positive COVID-19 test results since April 9, 2021.
  • If the student has received a COVID-19 vaccination, they may bring their COVID-19 vaccination card for reference

What happens if I am asked to schedule a COVID-19 PCR test?

Residents who are screened by Student Health Services (SHS) and are informed that they need to schedule a COVID-19 PCR test will be directed to a SHS representative on site who will schedule the resident for a test at the Student Health Services annex in 5 days.

When and how will residents receive the results of their nasal self-swab COVID-19 PCR test?

Residents will receive their test results through the MY Chart patient portal that can be set up at the time a resident schedules the COVID-19 testing appointment.

What happens if the results of a resident’s COVID-19 PCR test are positive?

If a resident’s test results come back positive, they will be notified by Student Health Services and placed in isolation on campus. Learn more about the isolation process here.

Do I need to be retested if I have already tested positive for COVID-19?

Residents who have tested positive from April 9, 2021 and later (12 weeks or less) will not be required to be retested. However, these residents will be required to show proof of their positive test results. Proof of their positive test results will require a paper print out stating the date of the test and the test results. The paper print out will be collected at the Health Screening and will not be returned to the residents. Antibody test results will NOT be accepted.

What if I have been fully vaccinated, do I still need to be tested for COVID-19?

As part of the health screening process, a Student Health Services representative will evaluate your COVID-19 risk exposure and advise if testing is necessary.

What do I do if I am isolating on my move in date because I tested positive for COVID-19?

Residents who are isolating because they have tested positive for COVID-19 during the move in time period should not come to campus until their 10 day isolation is completed. Residents should contact Student Health Services (SHS) at (813) 974-2331 or (813) 445-4976 on the Tampa Campus to inform of their positive test result and schedule a telehealth appointment to be cleared to return to campus. The medical providers will inform USF Housing that the student will be returning at a later date.

What do I do if I am quarantining because I have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19?

Residents who are quarantining because they have been in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 during the move in time period should not come to campus until their 10 days of quarantine is completed. Residents should contact Student Health Services (SHS) at (813) 974-2331 or (813) 445-4976 on the Tampa Campus to inform of their quarantine and schedule a telehealth appointment to be cleared to return to campus. The medical providers will inform USF Housing that the student will be returning at a later date.

What do I do if I feel ill at the time of check-in?

Will I be able to schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination?

YES. At the time of check-in, residents may schedule an appointment to be vaccinated with either the Pfizer 2 dose vaccine or the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) 1 dose vaccine. Vaccines will be administered at Student Health Services free of charge.  We strongly encourage all students to be vaccinated to protect themselves and the community.
