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 someone who was within 6 feet of a person infected with COVID-19 for at least 15 minutes, over a 24-hour period. An infected person can spread COVID-19 starting from 48 hours (or 2 days) before the person has any symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19.

Incidental exposure such as walking by someone in the hallway, using the same equipment or the same area/room is not close contact.

Stanislaus State Covid Response Specialist 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.
