Potential Workplace Exposure

In compliance with the Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CalOSHA) Assembly Bill 685 requirements, SCU is providing notification to employees of campus workplaces where people were on campus during their infectious periods.

*Campus LocationPositive Test Date

Per the applicable notification requirements, faculty, staff or students who are identified as being exposed as a close contact will be contacted and provided appropriate instructions by SCU’s or the County Public Health Department’s contact tracing personnel.

If an SCU student, staff or faculty member tests positive outside of SCU's testing program, please report it through this link.

COVID-19 Related Benefits and Protections

SCU Human Resources will answer any employee questions about Personnel related leaves, programs, and needs. Additionally, there are employer and government-sponsored.  If you are unable to work, you may be entitled to receive supplemental paid sick leave to cover the time you are required to quarantine, isolate, or seek a COVID-19 diagnosis. Please contact Indu Ahluwalia for more information on these benefits.  Retaliation or discrimination against an employee who requests paid sick days or uses paid sick days is prohibited.  scu.edu/covid-19-hr-resource

Contact Tracing and Disinfecting Protocol

Following state and Santa Clara County public health directives, SCU works with the Santa Clara County Health Department to identify cases, notify appropriate parties, and quarantine close contacts.

SCU Facilities implemented enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols (using EPA approved products for COVID-19) when the pandemic began and will continue to do so for its duration. Worksites in which a confirmed case has been identified are deep cleaned and disinfected.

 

Privacy Reminder

Santa Clara University strives at all times to respect the privacy and medical confidentiality of our community members who have tested positive for COVID-19. While it is understandable to be concerned and seek details about possible exposure from peers or colleagues who are infected, it is important to remember:

  • Confirmed cases do not always indicate active infections. Many individuals who have tested positive have already recovered or are in the process of recovering.
  • The public health department in a person’s county of residence determines who, if anyone, must be contacted regarding potential exposure to COVID-19, based on current guidelines. For Santa Clara County, guidelines can be found on the Santa Clara County Public Health website. 
  • The most important factors in preventing the spread of COVID-19 continue to be social distancing; strictly following good health practices such as frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitizer; wearing masks when engaging in essential activities outside the home; and following all guidance from U.S. and local health authorities. 
  • Those experiencing symptoms of COVID-19—such as a fever over 100.4 degrees, coughing or trouble breathing—should contact their local provider, or, if residing on campus, contact the Cowell Health Center.
