To ensure that, we have developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to mitigate the potential for transmission of COVID-19 through the the cooperative efforts of employees, students and visitors.

USF will require individuals inside all university facilities to wear a fabric or disposable surgical-style face covering which covers their nose and mouth. Face coverings must be worn inside all university-owned or university-provided transportation with more than one passenger.
Face coverings should also be worn outside while in high-density or highly populated areas where proper social distance cannot be maintained.
For further details, please refer to the full USF Face Covering Policy.
We have new opportunities to express our care, concern, and compassion for each other in a workplace influenced by COVID-19. Let us re-commit to our Franciscan Values in the following ways to express our “Franciscans Care.”
