COVID-19 Research Continuity Guidelines and Resources
Current Phase: 2 at up to 50% capacity (learn more). However, given unprecedented levels of COVID-19 infections in LA County, researchers are urged to only go to campus if absolutely necessary.
All researchers should follow these guidelines in addition to the rest of the information given on this site:
- Minimize all in-person activity and transition to remote methods wherever possible.
- All faculty, staff, and students going to campus must get weekly COVID-19 tests through the process described at Pop 3.0 Testing Hours and Locations; scheduling is done through this secure portal: usc.edu/myshr
- Any faculty, staff, or student with any symptoms of COVID-19 or who has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 should refrain from coming to campus and should promptly contact USC Student Health for testing.
- Any faculty, staff, or student who has traveled outside of Southern California cannot come to campus until after completing the required quarantine for 10 days upon return according to LA County’s “Safer at Home” mandatory directive on travel.
- PIs and research administrators should review all COVID-19 safety measures with their groups to ensure compliance with all the measures on this site.
