Late update: Incorrect Report of Coronavirus Case at USC

It is very important for us to share accurate and up-to-date information so you can fully understand the issue and help to dispel many of the rumors that are circulating. During times like this, inaccurate information — even when well-intended — can spread widely. For example, Monday night there was a false report about a student being diagnosed with Novel Coronavirus.

(Note: Starting on Feb. 28, USC has implemented a standalone website to make it easier to get updates about current university policy and activity regarding COVID-19. Visit the website,, for the latest information.)

No cases have affected the USC community. All classes and university businesses are continuing as normally scheduled. If anything changes, the campus community would be notified immediately.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health reported there is no immediate threat to the general public. No special precautions are required, and people should not be excluded from activities based on their race, country of origin or recent travel history.
