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.  

SDSU Student Health Services staff review cases of positive individuals and work in collaboration with county contact tracers, which includes calling all close contacts of the individual who tested positive for COVID-19. 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. 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.  

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.

Additional COVID-19 testing and vaccination information is available online.

SDSU’s Response

SDSU has developed and implements a disinfection and safety plan in accordance with CDC guidelines. The university's Environment, Health & Safety team works with Facilities Management to identify and perform additional cleaning of any spaces, which is performed in addition to already enhanced evening sanitation and cleaning practices.

Building Services is adhering to CDC guidelines with increased cleaning frequencies and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces in all common areas, public spaces, break rooms, kitchenettes and other areas throughout campus.

Each of the locations where COVID-19-positive individual(s) visited have been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected pursuant to COVID-19 cleaning protocols. For more information about SDSU’s cleaning protocols, the information is accessible online through SharePoint site (employee login required).

Also, 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.
