Face Coverings

Employees are required to wear face coverings inside the School of Law EXCEPT when they are eating or working alone inside their office.

A cloth face covering and a face shield have been provided by the School of Law for every employee. If you have not already received yours, please contact your supervisor.


Building Access

While the School of Law will be open 24/7 for employees with their Carolina Card, new building hours  have been established for the fall semester for students and visitors. 

A daily health screening MUST be submitted before entering the building.

Daily Health Screenings

The University of South Carolina is requiring all on-campus employees (and visitors) to participate in daily health screenings in order to mitigate the risk of any outbreak or disease transmission on-campus.

Electronic Form

The School of Law will be utilizing the survey tool Qualtrics to administer the required electronic daily screening form to reduce the potential risk of exposure associated with the physical interchange of paper documents. The survey responses will be made available to supervisors by accessing a secured file.

Paper Form

Those uncomfortable submitting the electronic form may print out and complete the required daily wellness form [pdf] and send it directly to their supervisor (staff) or to Sonya Paulk (faculty).   


COVID-19 Testing

The university offers COVID-19 testing for university employees. Visit the university's faculty and staff information page to learn more about available dates and times for testing.

Employees who are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19 should call the university's Coronavirus Hotline at 803-576-8511.

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) recommends that employees who have been ill not come to work until 7 days have passed since their symptoms began AND they are free of fever (100.4°F [37.8°C] or less using an oral thermometer) or signs of fever for 3 days without the use of fever-reducing medicines and their other symptoms have improved. 

Any law school employee who has tested positive must report their results to Liz Niehaus or Elizabeth Oswald-Sease.
