Please use the COVID-19 Reporting Form to report your positive case.
After a positive test is reported on campus, a COVID-19 Specialist will:
- Review information submitted via the COVID-19 Reporting Form.
- Send a general campus community e-mail to notify close contacts of their potential exposure, and provide testing and isolation guidance.
- Connect individuals with resources to support care recommendations.
A "close contact" is:
- In indoor spaces 400,000 or fewer cubic feet per floor, a close contact is defined as sharing the same indoor airspace as a COVID-19 case for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period during the COVID-19 case's infectious period.
- In large indoor spaces greater than 400,000 cubic feet per floor, a close contact is defined as being within 6 feet of the COVID-19 case for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period during the COVID-19 case's infectious period.
Stanislaus State COVID-19 Specialists will assist on-campus individuals who have been infected with COVID-19 or are close contacts with questions when requested to provide guidance on isolation, quarantine, testing, masking, and care per public health guidance.
Those identified as close contacts should follow the guidance below, regardless of your vaccination status:
- Get tested immediately and 3-5 days after last exposure*
- Wear a face covering when around others for 10 days after exposure, even at home if other people are present.
- If you test positive, isolate and you must follow the Isolation & Return Protocol.
*If you had COVID-19 within the last 30 days:
- You don’t need to test after exposure unless symptoms start.
- If symptoms start, isolate and get tested.
