Contact Tracing

When the USC Student Health contact tracing team member contacts you, they are only focused on one thing: keeping you healthy, and keeping your friends and co-workers safe from COVID-19. Team members who are health professionals will ask about your symptoms, and about others you may have had close contact with during the time you may have been infectious. Your patient privacy matters to USC Student Health. Your name will not be shared with those who are notified.
