Return to Campus and Daily Screening Guidelines

UCSF has begun a phased return to onsite work for some UCSF community members.

This will allow a limited number of faculty, staff, and learners who cannot work remotely to gradually resume onsite activities. Only those who have been told that they can return to campus should be doing so at this point. Everyone else who can work remotely should continue to do so.

Those who are returning to onsite activities for any reason (including SHCS appointments) must meet the following requirements:

  1. Pass an online health screen
    · UCSF faculty, staff, learners, affiliates, visitors, and vendors must pass an online health screen to verify that they do not have COVID-19 symptoms or exposures that would put others at risk for infection. Delivery people are exempt.
    · Please review this online tutorial for the health screening tool.
  2. Wear mandatory face coverings
    · Anyone on UCSF property, including buildings, grounds, labs, conference rooms, elevators, parking structures and shuttles must wear a face covering or mask at all times except when alone in a private office or personal vehicle.
    · Face coverings must cover both nose and mouth, and they should be worn while also maintaining appropriate physical distance—at least six feet apart.
    · A surgical mask must be worn at all times in hospital and clinical settings in accordance with UCSF Health’s Universal Surgical Mask policy.
    · Complete face covering guidelines for campus and Health are available online.
Welcome Back!

After a few months of hard work and dedication (with a few nights and weekends), we are excited to officially announce the launch of the new UCSF Student Health and Counseling Services (SHCS) website! It's been four years since we last redesigned our site, so it was definitely time to give our site a face and function lift.

Our goal with this new website is to provide our visitors an easier way to learn about SHCS's services and resources and also to allow you, the visitors, to browse information more easily. The new website is of course responsive! We have ramped up our all of our pages and navigation. We will be constantly updating our content with helpful and important information such as deadlines, insurance coverage information, health and safety advisories, clinic closure information, etc.

Please contact us to let us know what you think of our new website - all comments and feedback are welcome. Please also let us know if you cannot find something or would like to make any suggestions for new information or topics. We hope you like our new and improved website.
