Screening and Care for Respiratory Symptoms

We are readying our teams to route an influx of patient diagnoses of respiratory symptoms (cough, sore throat, fever, runny nose, sneezing); both through TeleHealth (currently available as phone-based, and transitioning to Zoom-based), as well as on-site screening where medically indicated.

Patients should follow the procedures below:

  • FIRST—Make a Telehealth or Phone visit appointment* to discuss your respiratory symptoms with a clinician (through the patient portal, My Student Health Record, MySHR (; or call the 24/7 to speak with an Advice Nurse 213-740-9355 (WELL)
  • No in-person respiratory visits will be permitted without first completing a phone/TeleHealth consultation.
  • Patients who are recommended for testing for COVID-19 should be prepared to self-isolate until the results of the tests are confirmed(estimated at 48-72 hours)

Urgent medical care (“sick/injury” visits) will continue to be provided for USC students. Telehealth will be the appropriate route and best option for many visits; in-person visits will be arranged when medically indicated for students currently on and near campus. Routine appointments (“well” visits) may be rescheduled for a later time. Immunization clinics for travel are temporarily cancelled.
