Report the following using the COVID-19 Reporting Form:
- If you are awaiting test results
- Tested positive for COVID-19
- If you were a close contact with someone that tested positive for COVID-19
- Experiencing symptoms
- Need to care for a K-12 child that needs to quarantine
All reported cases will undergo contact investigation.
After a positive test is reported on campus, a COVID-19 Specialist will:
- Collect information that will determine close contacts
- Notify close contacts and provide testing and quarantine guidance
- Connect individuals with resources to support quarantine and care recommendations
Positive test results will be reported to Stanislaus or San Joaquin County Public Health per regulations outlined by Human Health Services.
A “close contact” is someone sharing the same indoor space (e.g., home, classroom, clinic waiting room, airplane etc.), for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period. For example, three individual 5-minute exposures totaling 15 minutes during an infected person's laboratory-confirmed or a clinically diagnosed infectious period. Stanislaus State Covid Response Specialists will ONLY reach out to on-campus individuals identified as "close contacts" and will provide guidance on quarantine, testing and care per public health guidance.
To minimize disruption to in-person classes, faculty are encouraged to establish a seating chart for in-person classes. Students are often unaware of the names of those seated near them resulting in the whole class deemed a close contact when one student tests positive. The ability to identify those who meet the definition of a close contact, will significantly minimize the number of students required to quarantine for ten days.
