SDSU Potential Workplace & Classroom Exposures
SDSU has a robust monitoring and alert system in place for all reported COVID-19 cases which may have had campus contact. As part of this protocol, any close contacts are directly notified, and in alignment with SDSU's COVID-19 Case Communications Protocol a broader notice is also sent to all employees who may have had contact with the space or with the individual who tested positive.
The current U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines define close contacts as someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes, or more over a 24-hour period beginning two days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, two days prior to test results) until the time the patient is isolated. All close contacts are notified as soon as possible via HealtheConnect. Public health officials have determined that there is a low risk of exposure for those who have not been in close contact with an infected individual.
SDSU will generally not disclose more specific details about the location of individuals who have been infected for privacy reasons and also because avoiding the physical location does not inherently lower a person's risk of infection; getting vaccinated and maintaining healthy practices, to include washing your hands, are among the best methods to lower your risk.
While the risk of transmission associated with these cases is typically low, it is important that all students, faculty and staff who become sick, no matter their symptoms or severity, remain home. Be attentive to your symptoms and never come to campus for work, classes, meetings, events or other activities if you are sick.
Employees who need time off for COVID-19 related issues should utilize available leave credits and/or request an unpaid leave. If you believe you contracted a COVID‐19‐related illness as a result of your university employment, you may be entitled to Workers' Compensation benefits through the university. For more information, please contact Benefits Services at [email protected] (or your respective HR office if you are employed by Associated Students, Aztec Shops, or the SDSU Research Foundation).
Additional COVID-19 testing and vaccination information is available online.
