Each time CSArts-SGV is notified through the COVID-19 Reporting Form of a positive case on campus related to a student, faculty/staff member, or community member, our Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs), who are certified in contact tracing, will determine which individuals have been exposed and initiate the following notifications.
Vaccinated individuals who have had a close-contact or low-risk exposure to a COVID-19 positive individual will be notified via email.
Unvaccinated individuals who have had a close-contact or low-risk exposure to a COVID-19 positive individual will be called by the CSArts-SGV Health Office and also receive a follow-up email with written instructions based on their level of contact and other factors to determine whether they need to stay home from school.
As a reminder, close-contact exposure is defined as being exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual at a distance of less than 6 feet for more than 15 minutes within a 24-hour period, while low-risk exposure is defined as being indirectly exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual through a shared classroom or office space.
If you do not receive a notification, it has been determined through contact tracing that you have not been exposed, and no action is required.
Please note that the community notification, which was previously sent out to the entire CSArts-SGV community on days in which COVID-19 cases were reported on campus, will no longer be a part of our notification process. Instead, this COVID-19 Dashboard will serve as the primary resource for keeping our larger CSArts-SGV community informed on active case totals (see above).
Lastly, with each confirmed positive case, the CSArts-SGV Facilities Team will be notified as well. These professionals are trained to complete a deep cleaning of any exposure area(s) and are committed to keeping the CSArts-SGV campus safe.
