Staying Safe and Supporting Your Well-being

We encourage USC students, faculty and staff to practice good hygiene when coming to campus and interacting with each other. Test if you may have had an exposure, and test before and after attending a gathering or returning from travel (days 3-5 after potential exposure are recommended.) Wear a high-quality mask when indoors or in crowded settings to keep yourself and others safe from transmission. Vaccines are available at no cost, and are the best tools for protecting yourself and others from severe illness and hospitalization.

Know that resources supporting the mental health and well-being of students are available through Student Health’s Counseling and Mental Health Services unit (part of the Department of Psychiatry and the Behavioral Sciences in the Keck School of Medicine of USC). Additional campus offices offer assistance for USC students. Mental health programs for faculty and staff are available through the Workwell Center, and the Care for the Caregiver program is available to the health care workforce of Keck Medicine of USC.
