As of April 4, 2022 (Monday), USC campuses will no longer require Trojan Check for access to campuses. Perimeter check at the UPC campus will be discontinued on that date. All faculty, staff, and students should continue to check their symptoms whenever coming to campus. The Trojan Check wellness assessment will remain available as a helpful tool to complete this.
MASKING—Masks are not required but remain highly recommended, and they are required in some indoor settings such as health care facilities and public transportation.
SECOND BOOSTERS—Earlier this week, the CDC released new booster recommendations:
- Anyone over the age of 50 is now eligible for a second booster, as long as four months have passed since their first booster. This is especially important for individuals over 65 and those over 50 with medical conditions that weaken their immune systems.
- Anyone who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as their primary series should receive a second booster with an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna), four months after their first booster.
SYMPTOMS & TESTING—All students, faculty, staff, and visitors should monitor themselves for symptoms daily when accessing campus. If you develop any of the symptoms listed by the CDC, please stay home and arrange to have a COVID-19 test as soon as possible.
