COVID 19 Plan
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year. In response to the changing nature of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the UHS Covid-19 Task Force continues its work to support the health and wellness of our students, faculty and staff, and families.
Adhering to the most up-to-date guidance and directives from the California and San Francisco Department of Health, 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, in our Covid-19 Plan, and by email as needed. Please note that as circumstances continue to change, we will respond quickly and may update our policies as needed.
The UHS Covid-19 task force will continue to meet as needed.
Task Force liaisons will attend information sessions with the CDPH as needed.
SFUHS is following all recommendations from the CDPH guidance, including air quality control, masking recommendations, hand hygiene, and more. Many mitigation measures and strategies have already been implemented and continue to play a central role in reducing the spread of COVID-19 on our campus. For a list of specific mitigation measures and guidelines for the 2023-2024 school year, please review this document. Please note that as circumstances continue to change, we may update our policies as needed.
VISITORS TO CAMPUS
Effective Monday, March 14, masks are recommended but not required for all students, staff, and visitors (with proof of vaccination or recent negative test) on our campus.
We also expect that UHS community members who are not feeling well, or who are exhibiting COVID-like symptoms – even when testing negative – will mask out of courtesy, respect for others, and as a common-sense health practice.
