The CSUSM COVID-19 Case Daily Dashboard lists campus worksites at which a positive COVID-19 individual was present during their infectious period.
Learn about the campus worksite COVID-19 exposure notification process as well as resources and benefits available to you by expanding the topics below.
Campus notifications about COVID-19 exposures are required pursuant to AB 685 - California Labor Code § 6409.6, and Title 8 California Code of Regulations § 3205(c)(3)(B)(3). Managers will send email notifications to their affected employees and provide information that lists the buildings where a COVID-19 positive individual spent time.
When CSUSM is notified that a positive COVID-19 individual was present on campus during their infectious period, the University will investigate the case; directly contact employees and students who have been identified as close contacts as soon as possible; and post the affected campus worksite(s) and date(s) on the CSUSM COVID-19 Case Daily Dashboard within one business day.
Employees who work on campus and students who live on campus or attend classes on campus are advised to check the dashboard daily to determine if they were present at the same worksite(s) on the same day(s) as the positive individual.
Being present in the same location on the same day does not mean you have had close contact with the positive person, and public health officials have determined there is a low risk of exposure for those who have not been in close contact with an infected individual. The current 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 starting from 2 days before illness onset (or 2 days prior to test results for asymptomatic patients) until the time the patient is isolated.
All cleaning and disinfection protocols will return to pre-pandemic status. The exception to this is if there is a confirmed COVID-19 case on campus, in which case enhanced cleaning procedures will still be utilized depending on the location and timing of the case. (Enhanced cleaning will be performed if the space in which a COVID-19-positive person was present will be occupied within 24 hours following the positive case being in the space.)
Any person wishing to perform additional cleaning or disinfecting of their personal workspace or equipment can obtain cleaning/sanitizing supplies by contacting the CCDC.

For emergencies and/or criminal matters, contact University Police: 9-1-1 or 760.750.4567.
If you suspect you are infected or have been exposed to COVID-19, follow the steps from the CDC guidelines to help prevent the disease from spreading to people in your home and community.
