3/19: Keck Employee Screening Protocol

Dear Colleagues,

Your health, and that of our patients, are always our top priority. In light of the ongoing concerns surrounding COVID-19, we are taking necessary steps to ensure your safety, as well as the safety of our patients and their families.

Beginning tomorrow, March 20, we will begin rolling out a process for screening all staff and faculty who are entering our facilities, focusing on our clinical sites initially. Anyone with symptoms of illness, such as cough, fever, runny nose or trouble breathing, will be asked to return to their vehicle and contact Employee Health for further instructions.

As a reminder, faculty and staff are encouraged to stay home if they are experiencing symptoms of acute respiratory illness, coughing, shortness of breath, or fever. Please contact Employee Health Services at (323) 442-5219 for additional guidance and support.

If you have any questions about our measures to prepare and protect our staff, faculty, patients and visitors, please visit KeckNet for additional resources.

Best Regards,

Rod Hanners
COO, Keck Medicine of USC
CEO, Keck Medical Center of USC
