Effective Monday, September 12. The University is implementing these reentry changes to align with new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on testing, vaccinations and quarantine periods.

What Is the Campus Safety Protocol?

  • Vaccines/Testing are no longer required for students, employees or visitors to enter campus.
  • Daily Health Screening must be completed prior to coming to campus. Please have your QR code ready, along with your badge, upon entering campus and remember to scan out at the end of day. The screening form questions have been revised, so please read and answer them carefully.
  • Wrist Bands must be visible and worn around your wrist while on campus that day.
  • Clinical Placements: Most clinical partners require students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to meet their Clinical Experience requirement. Clinical placements and experiences may be at risk for those students who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • Face Masks remain optional in all campus facilities, except for post-positive COVID-19 diagnosis or exposure as instructed by the USAHS Reentry Team. We continue to encourage the use of face masks for our pro-bono clinics and with research study participants. Face masks will continue to be made available on all campuses.
  • Visitors will continue to be limited to those on official University business or who support USAHS’ academic purpose.
