COVID 19 Plan
In response to the changing nature of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, UHS continues its work to support the health and wellness of our students, faculty and staff, and families.
Our comprehensive campus safety plan is informed by our core values of inquiry, care, integrity, agency, and interconnection. We remain committed to the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual well-being of our students, faculty, and staff. All our decision making, policies, and procedures adhere to state, county, and city regulations and are designed to support our entire community.
UHS Covid-19 policies are in alignment with all current guidance from California Department of Public Health and the San Francisco Department of Public Health. As guidance continues to evolve, we will adapt as needed and updates will be shared on this webpage and by email as needed. Please note that as circumstances continue to change, we will respond quickly and may update our policies as needed.
SFUHS is following all recommendations from the CDPH guidance, including air quality control, isolation and masking recommendations, hand hygiene, and more. Accordingly, UHS is following new CDPH guidelines published on January 9, 2024 that move from a required five-day isolation period after testing positive to a more relaxed, symptom-based management of Covid-19.
- Community members now are advised to return to school once their symptoms are mild and improving, and are fever free without any fever-reducing medications for 24 hours.
- Importantly, masking recommendations remain unchanged.
- Students, faculty, and staff who have Covid-19 symptoms or test positive should wear a mask for 10 days from the onset of symptoms or the positive test date (unless you have two consecutive negative tests 1 day apart).
- As with all illnesses, students who have tested positive for Covid-19 should report their illness to Carol Coles.
Please note that as circumstances continue to change, we may update our policies as needed
