Safe-Distancing Resources

Staff Break Rooms/Staff Team Lounges

UCSF Health has not relaxed masking and safe-distancing guidance for staff-only break rooms and team lounges where masks are removed to consume food or drink.  Review the Safe and Physical Distance Guidelines for Staff Break Rooms/Team Lounges for the required signs and clings in break rooms and team lounges.  To order new or replacement signs and/or clings for these areas, go to MCSS Service Now and request a safety assessment under the Safety Office menu with the location(s) of the break room and/or team lounge.  Here are the designated overflow staff break rooms at Parnassus and at Mission Bay.  These room lists are dynamic as room usage is returned to pre-pandemic purpose.

Signs and Clings

As UCSF Health focuses on re-opening strategies, many of the previously deployed signs and clings are no longer applicable.  At entrance lobbies of the hospitals, visual cues including floor dots for queues and furniture clings in waiting areas, are being refreshed through April 2022.  Starting May 1, replacement signs at units may be requested through Signs and Wayfinding using MCSS Service Now.
