CalOSHA requires notification when a qualifying individual has been in a worksite during their infectious period. The California Department of Public Health defines the infectious period as 2 days before an infected person first develops symptoms (or 2 days before an asymptomatic test) until 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared, and at least 24 hours have passed with no fever (without the use of fever-reducing medications), and other symptoms have improved.
If a qualifying individual enters a worksite and is later diagnosed with COVID-19, this table reports the building name and dates during their infectious period. These will be posted for 15 days. This notification is in addition to the direct contact the District makes to employees infected or presumed to have COVID-19 and those employees who were identified through contact tracing as a close contact.

Workplace Exposure Notification
The District has confirmed that an individual or individuals infected with COVID-19 was/were present in the locations and on the dates listed on the table above and was/were potentially infectious. If you were in these locations on this date, there is a chance you may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. You do not need to self-quarantine. The risk of you developing a COVID-19 infection from this potential exposure is low; however, you should monitor yourself daily for COVID-19 symptoms. If you do develop COVID-19 related symptoms, please notify your supervisor.
The Dstrict is providing this information as a preventative measure only, to promote your health and safety, as well as comply with Cal/OSHA's COVID-19 Prevention Non-Emergency Regulations on COVID-19 prevention in the workplace.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this virus is most commonly spread between people who have been in “close contact” with one another. Cal/OSHA defines a "close contact” essentially as an employee 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. Offices, suites, rooms, waiting areas, break or eating areas, bathrooms or other spaces that are separated by floor-to-ceiling walls are considered distinct indoor airspaces.
COVID-19 testing is available at no cost only to those employees who were identified as being in close contact with a positive case on campus. These tests are available at the Student Health Centers.
If you are a student in the course(s) listed and attended the class on the specific date, time, and location, there is a likely chance that you have been exposed to COVID-19. If you wish to be tested, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends testing 3-5 days after the exposure. Free take home tests are available at the student health centers.
