Trojan Commitment

We must all join the fight against COVID-19

As Trojans, we fight on. And, as a community that supports and respects one another, we must all join the fight against COVID-19. United and committed, we will prevent the virus from spreading. Commit to protect yourself, your peers, your neighbors and the entire Trojan community. When we all thrive, we all succeed.

Make the commitment to protect yourself, your peers, your neighbors and the entire Trojan community:

Make sure to protect yourself by washing your hands

Protect Myself

Self-monitor for any symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Wash hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water; if soap is unavailable, use hand sanitizer (60%+ alcohol content).

Physical distancing is keeping 6 feet from others and should be practiced on campus

Protect My Peers

Practice physical distancing – keep a 6-foot/2-meter distance from others.

Stay home when sick and contact USC Student Health or a physician if necessary.

Wear a face covering around others.

If personal protective equipment (PPE) is assigned, wear as instructed. Take care when putting on and removing PPE, to minimize infection.

Wear a face mask to avoid spreading the virus

Protect My Community

Keep frequently touched common surfaces clean by using disinfectant wipes.

Participate in training sessions, and follow instructions for screening, testing, contact tracing or any other measures to contain spread.

Be mindful of others who may be at a higher risk for contracting the disease.

Respect neighbors by practicing physical distancing, wearing face coverings, and being aware of noise levels. Avoid hosting or attending in-person gatherings, and follow city guidelines on public congregating.

If you test positive for COVID-19, notify the USC COVID-19 hotline: 213-740-6291 or
