How contact investigation works at California State University, Stanislaus

After a positive test is reported on campus, a COVID-19 Specialist will:

  1. Collect information that will determine close contacts
  2. Notify close contacts and provide testing and quarantine guidance
  3. 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.

What is a Close Contact?

A "close contact" is:

  • In indoor spaces 400,000 or fewer cubic feet per floor (such as home, clinic waiting room, airplane, etc.), a close contact is defined as sharing the same indoor airspace for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period (for example, three separate 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes) during an infected person's (confirmed by COVID-19 test or clinical diagnosis) infectious period.
  • In large indoor spaces greater than 400,000 cubic feet per floor (such as open-floor-plan offices, warehouses, large retail stores, manufacturing, or food processing facilities), a close contact is defined as being within 6 feet of the infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period during the infected person's 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.

Classroom Seating

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.
