    Health and Safety

Health and Safety

As we near the start of the fall semester, we are working to gradually bring back our students, faculty, and staff to campus — and, most important, keep you as healthy and safe as possible. To that end, all campus repopulation decisions are based on the most current local and national public health recommendations and guidelines.

The road back to campus is paved with hope and optimism — especially if we all do our part to protect ourselves and our community. Keep checking here for the latest health and safety updates as we prepare to welcome Fall 2021 — and you.

 

Students

Coming to Campus? Your Daily Health Screening and Required Training Video

We anticipate that all CSUN students, employees, or visitors coming onto campus in the fall will be required to complete the appropriate health screening survey each day before arriving at the CSUN campus. If you are not cleared, do not come to campus; the survey page will provide you with next steps.

All students and employees will be required to review videos and other training materials before returning to campus.

COVID Vaccinations and Testing: Students

Vaccination Information

As directed by the Chancellor of the CSU, students coming to campus this fall must be fully vaccinated or be granted a medical or religious exemption by September 30.

Vaccination plays one of the most vital roles in keeping our campus and community healthy, and we encourage all who can be vaccinated to do so as soon as possible. If you haven’t already received your vaccine, now is the time to get your COVID-19 vaccination!

  • If you are receiving the Johnson and Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, you can receive your single dose by September 16 and still meet the September 30 deadline.
  • If you have already had your first dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine but not yet completed your second dose, the last day to receive the second dose of both is also September 16 in order to be fully vaccinated by September 30.
  • Appointments are free and available through myturn.ca.gov
  • All students must complete the certification process as soon as possible. Students still in the process of becoming fully vaccinated should complete the certification once full vaccination is achieved but not later than September 30, 2021. Students who are not planning to access campus or participate in CSUN programs off campus this fall are also able to make that declaration. However, your plans may change, so it’s much better to become fully vaccinated as soon as possible and to certify your fully vaccinated status, allowing you to access the CSUN campus or participate in off-campus CSUN programs or activities.
  • Delaying the start of your vaccination puts your academic progress in jeopardy. Students who are enrolled in courses with on-campus, face-to-face components and who have not completed the certification process by September 30 will be disenrolled from these courses.

Using a simple online “point and click” tool at the Student Health Center MyHealth portal, CSUN will collect from every student a certification declaring one of the following:

  • Declaration of full vaccination against COVID-19 (Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine, the last required dose of which having been administered at least 14 calendar days prior to the date of declaration), or
  • Declaration of (request for) medical exemption, including documentation from a certified or licensed healthcare professional, or
  • Declaration of (request for) religious exemption, or
  • Declaration that the student does not intend to access the CSUN campus or CSUN programs off campus; and that if the student’s plans change, they will submit a revised Certification in advance of any such access.

Each student submitting a declaration of COVID-19 vaccination must attest that the information provided is accurate and truthful and verify that at CSUN’s request, proof of vaccination will be promptly provided. Each week, CSUN will request proof of vaccination from at least 50 randomly selected students. All students are encouraged to voluntarily upload proof of vaccination when submitting the declaration of full vaccination.

Students who are still in the process of being fully vaccinated will have until September 30, 2021 to complete the certification process. Students who must come to campus for academic or non-academic activities or employment before being fully vaccinated or who have an exemption from vaccination, must follow the testing process described below.

All information submitted through the MyHealth portal is confidential and accessible to Student Health Center and university personnel with a required need to know.

To begin the certification process, please log into the MyHealth Patient Portal and follow the directions to complete the attestation and certification. To review the student COVID-19 process, described with helpful step-by-step screen shots, please visit COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements. If you have questions, please email shcinfo@csun.edu.

Acceptable Vaccines, Including Those for International students

Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson/Janssen are the three COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States under FDA Emergency Use Authorization.

Students living outside of the United States may only have access to other COVID-19 vaccinations. CSUN international students who have been fully vaccinated with the required doses by any of the World Health Organization-approved vaccinations below meet the requirements of CSUN’s COVID-19 immunization policy. International students not fully vaccinated will be asked to complete their series with vaccines authorized in the United States.

  • Pfizer-BioNTech (e.g., COMIRNATY, Tozinameran)
  • Moderna
  • Johnson & Johnson (Janssen)
  • AstraZeneca-Oxford (e.g., Covishield, Vaxzevria)
  • Sinopharm
  • Sinovac

Testing Information

Enrolled students for fall 2021 who are exempted from vaccination and plan to come on campus at any time, including for a class, appointment, service, or who will participate in an on- or off-campus CSUN coordinated program or activity, will be required to participate in free, weekly COVID-19 PCR testing. All exempted or not yet fully vaccinated students should obtain a negative COVID-19 PCR test within the seven days prior to attending their first class, activity, lab or service.

Entry Testing

  • Students must take an entry PCR test during the seven (7) days before coming onto campus for a class, appointment, service, or to participate in an on- or off-campus program or activity. However, students can come to campus to take the entry PCR test.
  • For unvaccinated students with exemptions, COVID-19 PCR testing will be required on a weekly basis upon first return to campus and for every week the student will be coming to campus. Testing will be performed on campus by appointment in partnership with the laboratory vendor Fulgent at one of three kiosks, beginning August 18. The Fulgent kiosks will provide free testing for enrolled students from 11 am to 7 pm, Monday through Friday. Students will be able to make an appointment for weekly COVID-19 PCR testing via the Student Health Center MyHealth portal.
  • Students who need entry testing and are unable to come to campus for testing should call the Student Health Center at 818-677-3666, Option 1, for alternatives, such as approved off-campus testing at a local pharmacy or via special arrangements with Fulgent, the CSUN testing vendor.

On-going testing

  • A negative PCR test will be required each week that the student will be coming to campus beyond the first entry test.
  • Students receiving a negative PCR test result will be authorized to access campus but will be required to continue weekly testing with a negative PCR result until the student is fully vaccinated. Students who are exempted from vaccination must continue weekly testing while coming to campus.
  • Students receiving a positive test result will be contacted by the Student Health Center and provided with appropriate health care guidance, which may include a referral to a student’s own physician or care at the Student Health Center.

A student solely engaged in virtual learning who will not come to campus at all and who will not participate in an off-campus program or activity will be exempt from testing. If the student decides to come to campus or needs to do so or decides to participate in an off-campus program or activity, the student will need to re-certify indicating full vaccination and/or participate in an entry PCR test as noted above.

Daily Health Screening

Students who come to campus are required to complete the online daily health screening for students through the CSUN app or student portal before coming to campus for any purpose including entry and on-going testing, to attend a class, appointment, service, or to participate in an on- or off-campus program or activity. This applies to all students whether vaccinated or unvaccinated.

CSUN Student Employees

Students working at CSUN, including students employed by the Associated Students, University Student Union or the University Corporation need to comply with the vaccination and testing policies for employees.

Student employees who have not been contacted directly by their employer should check with their supervisor to confirm the proper procedures to be followed.

Safety Protocols: Masks, Hygiene, Distancing

All students and employees will be required to review videos and other training materials before returning to campus.

Mask Up

Anyone on campus during the fall semester will be required to wear a face covering when indoors at CSUN, such as in the classroom, or other settings on campus. Face covering can be removed outdoors, in a private office with the door closed, or when eating/drinking.

Hygiene

Hygiene will continue to be an effective tool to combat the spread of COVID. Here are some tips:

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitizer (w/minimum 60% alcohol content) when hand washing is not possible
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or face
  • Cover coughs/sneezes with disposable tissues, if disposable tissues are not available use the inside of your elbow to cover coughs/sneezes

Health Services and Support

Health Center

The Klotz Student Health Center has remained open during the pandemic to provide primary and acute care services to students through a combination of on-site and Telehealth visits. Services include acute primary care, nursing, immunizations, required physicals, clinician-ordered laboratory tests, dental services, optometry services and more. In fall 2021, we anticipate supplementing these offerings with additional face-to-face offerings such as Chiropractic and Optometry as public health guidance allows.

Health and Safety Protocols

The requirements in this section were updated on July 1, 2021.

Employee Requirements and Responsibilities

All employees returning to campus have a collective responsibility to conduct their work in a manner which promotes their personal health and safety, as well as that of their co-workers and students. You will be responsible for:
  • completing CSUN’s on-line Return to Campus training module before performing any work on campus
  • completing the daily health screening survey each day working on campus
  • staying home if sick
  • wearing a face covering indoors (including in vehicles and in carts on campus)
  • washing hands regularly (for 20 seconds or more)
  • participating in weekly COVID-19 testing or selecting opt out option by self- certifying you are fully vaccinated in the MyNorthridge portal

Training

Per California OSHA requirements, all employees and students will be required to complete the Return to Campus training prior to working on campus. All employees are expected to complete this training no later than August 10, 2021. The training covers campus safety protocols, what the campus is doing to keep our population safe and administrator expectations.

The training is available on CSU Learn or via this shortcut. From this link, you will select “Northridge” from the drop down and then sign-in with your CSUN credentials. Then select the “Start” button to view the training.

Daily Health Screening

  • You will need to conduct a self-screening survey before coming to campus each day. The self-screening survey is available on the MyNorthridge portal, the CSUN app, and https://www.csun.edu/fall-2021-planning-gateway.
  • The self-screening survey will ask you a series of health-related questions. You will also be required to take your temperature as part of the screening.
  • If your temperature is below 100.4 and the answers to all questions are “no,” you will be sent an e-mail clearing you to come to campus for the day. Forward your clearance e-mail to your designated appropriate administrator or Department COVID Coordinator (as determined by your department).
  • If your temperature is at 100.4 or above and/or the answer to any question is yes, do not come to work. You will receive an e-mail advising you are not cleared to come to campus, to call your doctor for medical advice, and connect with your appropriate administrator to discuss and inquire about leave options.
  • Some campus units will be implementing or continuing daily non-contact temperature screening at an entry control site on entry. These include the Klotz Student Health Center, and the Department of Athletics.
  • If you need a thermometer to be able to complete the self-screening survey, you may request one through your Department COVID Coordinator.

Stay home if you are sick

  • Stay at home (except to get medical care). Call your doctor if you have a fever of 100.4 degrees F or more, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing; or, if you have a new onset of fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, loss of sense of taste or smell, diarrhea, unusual rash, or other flu-like symptoms. Please contact your appropriate administrator and advise of your absence.

Face Coverings

  • Employees shall have and wear an acceptable face covering indoors while on campus. Face covering can be removed outdoors, in a private office with the door closed, or when eating/drinking (provided 6-foot distancing can be maintained).
  • All employees will be provided five face coverings by their respective offices and unvaccinated employees will be provided a N95 respirator upon request, including the required training for the voluntary use of N95 respirators. To request the N95 respirator, please complete N95 Respirator Voluntary Use Request Form.
  • If you forget your face covering, please get a disposable face covering from the location designated by your Department COVID Coordinator.
  • Acceptable face coverings must:
    • Cover the nose and mouth openings
    • Fit snuggly against the face with secured ties/ear loops
    • Include at least two layers of fabric

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitizer (w/minimum 60% alcohol content) when hand washing is not possible
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or face.
  • Cover coughs/sneezes with disposable tissues, if disposable tissues are not available use the inside of your elbow to cover coughs/sneezes.

Breaks/Lunch

  • Employees are encouraged to eat their lunch outside to the greatest extent possible. Eating indoors is discouraged; however, if employees do so, it is acceptable in well-ventilated private offices and/or at cubicle desks. While indoor communal eating is strongly discouraged, Cal OSHA requires 6’ distancing should employees choose to eat together (subject to change upon CSU vaccination attestation policy).
  • Guidelines for Limited Breakroom Use:
    • You will need access to hand washing locations and/or hand sanitizer.
    • Frequent cleaning and sanitation of high contact surfaces is essential to help reduce the possibility of virus transmission in a high contact touch environment. You will need to sanitize (e.g. appliance handles, control panels) before and after every use .
    • All food and drink items must be removed at the end of your day.
      • No communal food items may be stored in the breakroom or refrigerators, such as, salt/pepper, ketchup/mustard/mayonnaise
    • All shared flatware/silverware, plates, glasses/cups, utensils, and cookware will be removed.
    • Ask your COVID-19 Coordinator on process for the cleaning personal items, such as dishes and other utensils

Sanitization

  • Sanitize authorized break/lunch spaces daily with approved/provided sanitizer and paper towels before and after use.
  • Sanitize shared equipment (e.g. computer keyboards, mice, appliances, etc.) with approved/provided sanitizer and paper towels each morning and after each use.
  • Use hand sanitizer before using computers/shared equipment.
  • Sanitize shared carts/equipment/computers/copiers/printers with approved/provided sanitizer and paper towels before and after each use.
  • Sanitize other shared areas such as reception counters, reception phones, and door knobs with approved/provided sanitizer frequently.
  • Note: You must not spray cleaner directly on computer keyboards or KeyWatcher interface panels. Spray sanitizer on a paper towel first, then wipe.

COVID-19 Vaccinations and Testing: Faculty and Staff

Vaccination Information

Per the CSU COVID-19 Vaccination Interim Policy, faculty, staff and student employees, working on campus, are expected to provide certification of full vaccination status or request a medical or religious exemption or certify they are not physically coming to campus as follows:

  • MPPs, Confidentials, UAPD (Unit 1) employees, UAW (Unit 11), and Student Assistants – no later than September 30, 2021
  • CFA (Unit 3) and CSUEU (Units 2, 5, 7, 9) – no later than October 27, 2021
  • APC (Unit 4), Teamsters (Unit 6), and SUPA (Unit 8) - While the meet and confer process with our union partners is still in progress, we encourage employees to voluntarily complete the certification as soon as possible to allow you to opt out of the required CSUN weekly COVID-19 testing.

You may now provide this self-certification or request an exemption through the myNorthridge Portal. Once logged into the portal, under the Policies and Procedures pagelet of the Faculty or Staff tab, select the EE Vaccine Self-Certification link and complete the form accordingly.

This process is only for state-side CSUN employees. Auxiliary employees should check with their respective HR departments for details.

**For CSUEU and SUPA only: To opt out of weekly COVID-19 mandated testing, per testing agreements with your respective unions, CSUEU and SUPA employees will need to submit proof of vaccination by uploading their vaccination card through the same EE Vaccine Self-Certification portal link as noted above. If you are unable to locate your vaccination card, please visit LA County Department of Public Health.

COVID-19 Testing:

Faculty, staff and student employees who do not self-certify that they have been fully vaccinated by the fall semester or who have been provided a medical or religious exemption will be required to participate in free weekly COVID-19 testing before coming to campus.

A negative COVID-19 test will need to be received within seven days of the start of classes (August 30, 2021) and then weekly thereafter. Weekly testing will be at no cost to employees and conducted during work hours. The COVID-19 test is a PCR nasal swab, which will be administered through a third-party vendor, Fulgent. Faculty, staff and student employees will be able to select if they prefer to test on campus or conduct their own test at home.

  • On campus testing – on campus testing will be available Monday through Friday, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at kiosks located near the Extended University Commons and University Student Union (USU) Freudian Sip. Please see map for details. Test results will be provided 24 - 48 hours after test date.
  • Testing from home – Fulgent will provide at home employee test kits. The test kit will be mailed to the homes of employees for self-administration and then employees will drop off the test sample at any FedEx location. Test results will be provided 24 - 48 hours after the lab receives the mailed test kit.

Employees who have certified their vaccination status may voluntarily choose to participate in testing, noting that testing on campus will not be an option for someone who is experiencing symptoms.

Please visit COVID-19 Employee Testing | California State University, Northridge (csun.edu) for information on how to schedule testing or have a test kit mailed to you.

Health and Safety Resources

Department COVID Coordinator

Each department has designated a manager (MPP) to serve as the Department COVID Coordinator. Department COVID Coordinators will be responsible for ensuring work spaces meet safety standards and expectations. COVID Coordinators will also ensure appropriate safety supplies are within each work space which include but are not limited to plexiglass workspace dividers, queue control stanchions, standard signage and floor decals, hand sanitizer and extra disposable face coverings.

Employee Support

Employees may refer to the signage placed around campus and in office spaces/classrooms to remind all visitors/colleagues of the safety protocols. Additionally, tools will be developed to assist employees in engaging in discussions with all visitors/customers, including students on safety expectations. Employees are also encouraged to reach out to their appropriate administrator for support.

Additionally, our Human Resources team will continue to be available to managers and employees to assist with resources available to employees specific to COVID-19. These include but are not limited to leave options, accommodations, telecommute options, working effectively and safely at home, pay check information, and the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). More information on these resources can continue to be found on the COVID-19 Information for Faculty and Staff webpage.

Mental Health Resources

As a CSUN employee you and anyone living in your household are eligible to receive support from our Employee Assistance Program (LifeMatters). Life Matters provides short-term counseling services, webinars, as well as a multitude of resources. Please visit https://www.csun.edu/benefits/lifematters-eap.

Additionally, LifeMatters will be hosting virtual support sessions for our campus community to address anxiety with change and transition to on campus work over the summer.

Reporting Concerns

Concerns of non-compliance of safety protocols may be reported to Environmental Health and Safety at ehs@csun.edu or 818-677-2401.

Cleaning, Disinfecting and More

Information Sessions

Environmental Health and Safety is hosting a number of informational sessions on campus efforts around cleaning, disinfecting and air quality. Please see Fall 2021 Question and Answer sessions for times you may be interested in attending.

Cleaning and Disinfection

For the Fall 2021 Semester the University will provide additional/dedicated cleaning custodial services during both the day shift (7 AM–4 PM) and swing shift (4 PM-12 AM) to disinfect high touch surfaces* (throughout the day, provide mid-day use disinfection for classrooms (during un-occupied periods, as they exist), and ensure stocking on Do It Yourself (DIY) disinfection supplies to public spaces, classrooms, and laboratories.

The University cleaning and disinfection procedures for SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) are directly aligned with the current cleaning and disinfection recommendations from the following sources:

Current guidelines indicate that when no people with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 are known to have been in a space, cleaning once a day is usually enough to sufficiently remove virus that may be on surfaces and help maintain a healthy facility. If there has been a sick person or someone who tested positive for COVID-19 in your facility within the last 24 hours, each space will be cleaned and disinfected using enhanced cleaning protocols, focusing on the disinfection of high touch surfaces*; once a thorough cleaning and disinfection have been completed, the space can be reoccupied.

All employees involved with cleaning operations have been trained in proper cleaning techniques and tasks, including when to use personal protective equipment (PPE), what PPE is necessary, how to properly don (put on), use, and doff (take off) PPE, and how to properly dispose of PPE. Additionally, employees are trained on the hazards of the cleaning chemicals used in the workplace in accordance with OSHA’s Hazard Communication standard.

* Examples of high-touch surfaces include: doorknobs, light switches, handles, stair rails, elevator buttons, toilets, faucets, sink counters, paper towel/soap dispensers, and tab-arm chairs, etc.

Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Operations to Mitigate SARS-CoV-2

In response to SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) the University employed a third-party CSU approved Mechanical Engineering firm, P2S Engineering, to individually visually inspect every building air handler and provide recommendations to ensure the highest feasible mitigations that could be enacted consistent with agency guidance for the mitigations of SARS-CoV-2:

Mitigation measures enacted include:

  • Upgraded all campus HVAC system filters and media to minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) 13 filters for the capture of airborne viruses. These are the same filters used in medical facilities.
  • Increased the introduction of outdoor air to the highest degree possible.
  • HVAC systems were adjusted to increase total airflow to occupied spaces to the maximum extent possible.
  • Turned off any demand-controlled ventilation (DCV) controls that reduce air supply based on occupancy or temperature during occupied hours.
  • Flushing of building HVAC systems with maximum outside airflow for two hours before and after the building is occupied.

As of Fall 2020 all of the above mitigation measures have been enacted for Campus buildings to the greatest extent feasible.

Classroom and Laboratory Guidelines

The campus has conducted assessments of laboratories and lecture spaces that may be used to support necessary teaching and research activities which cannot be conducted virtually. Some selected rooms will be provided enhanced synchronous video broadcast technology.

Other Things We Are Doing

  • Increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces by Custodial Services.
  • Increased frequency of cleaning and sanitizing of restrooms by Custodial Services.
  • Signs to educate and promote health and safety have been placed across campus.
  • Implemented an online screening survey for daily clearance.
  • Providing needed sanitization supplies for hands, surfaces, work areas, restrooms.

Reporting Suspected/Confirmed COVID Cases and/or Exposure to COVID-19

CSUN cares about your health and safety and continues to track reported COVID cases among members of our campus community, including students, faculty, and staff. If you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, even if you have not been on campus, please complete the relevant form below:

Thereafter, students will be contacted by the Klotz Student Health Center and employees will be contacted by Human Resources to conduct an intake and advise you of relevant quarantine protocols as outlined below. This will also initiate our contact tracing and sanitization protocols.

CSUN’s return to work/dorm/campus criteria, based on LA County Department of Public Health, for individuals who’ve tested positive to COVID-19, been exposed to COVID-19, or are experiencing symptoms

Please note: Any students or employees WITH COVID-19-like symptoms, regardless of vaccination status, should stay home and call their healthcare provider. If they are diagnosed with COVID, they must isolate for a minimum of 10 days from symptom onset or positive PCR COVID test. If during the last 24 hours or more of isolation they have no fever, without taking any fever-reducing medicine, AND symptoms have improved, they can be released from isolation.

Housing students should contact their RA and discuss quarantine options. They may be able to use their dorm room for quarantine, or be assigned a temporary room in another housing area.

COVID-19 Guidance Reference, per California Department of Public Health

If you’ve tested positive for COVID-19 (positive test for active test; not antibody)

The following guidance applies to all students and employees regardless of their vaccination status:

If you are diagnosed with COVID or have tested positive on a PCR COVID-19 test, please submit a self-reporting form via the link below. To prevent COVID-19 spread, contact tracing is necessary to identify your contacts who have been closer to you than 6 feet for 15 minutes or more in the 48 hours before your first symptoms and beyond.

Students will be contacted by the Klotz Student Health Center and employees will be contacted by Human Resources to conduct an intake and advise you of relevant isolation and quarantine protocols as outlined below. This will also initiate our contact tracing and sanitization protocols.

Isolate for 10 days after symptom onset or test date. You can be released from isolation if 10 days have passed, you have not had fever for the last 24 hours (without having taken any fever-reducing medicine), AND your symptoms have improved.

If your symptoms are not improved or you still have fever on the 10th day of isolation, seek medical evaluation BEFORE returning to campus.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms (and no positive COVID test)

If you are experiencing new or worsening symptoms below, you may have COVID and should call your health provider and consider COVID-19 PCR testing. Students may contact their private healthcare provider or the Klotz Student Health Center at 818-677-3666, option 1.

    -OR-
  • A note from your healthcare provider clearing you to return to campus and stating that you do not have COVID.

Employees – applies to all: fully vaccinated or unvaccinated/unknown vaccination status:

  • Consult with personal physician. COVID-19 testing is recommended. May not return to campus until symptom free for 24 hours without any fever-reducing medicine. Consistent with CBA guidelines, absences of five or more days will require a physician’s note prior to return.

If you have been a close contact to someone with confirmed COVID-19:

If you have been in contact in the last two weeks with someone with confirmed COVID-19 and have been closer to them than 6 feet for 15 minutes or more within 24 hours, with or without masks, you are considered a close contact and at risk of being infected with COVID-19, even if you have been fully vaccinated.

Please submit a self-reporting form. Students will be contacted by the Klotz Student Health Center and employees will be contacted by Human Resources to conduct an intake and advise you of relevant quarantine protocols as outlined below. This will also initiate our contact tracing and sanitization protocols.

If you have no symptoms, continue to self-monitor for symptoms for 4 more days. Self-monitoring should include taking one’s temperature twice a day.

CSUN cares about your health and safety and continues to track reported COVID-19 cases among members of our campus community, including students, faculty, and staff. To prevent COVID-19 transmission, most campus classes and activities remain virtual, and, to date, no one at CSUN has been infected on campus. If someone on campus is reported to have COVID-19, CSUN will work with Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to identify if they have had any close contacts while here. Close contacts are persons who have been closer than 6 feet to a COVID-infected individual for 15 minutes or more.) If so, CSUN will confidentially notify these close contacts, and ask them to call their doctor and self-quarantine for 10 days if unvaccinated. Vaccinated individuals with symptoms will also be asked to quarantine for 10 days. Fortunately, CDC-recommended preventive measures such as frequent handwashing, physical distancing, and face coverings can help to protect you from COVID transmission.

  Reported Cases (updated weekly, data current through 9/21/21) Number of cases on campus during CDC-defined infectious period Contact identification for on-campus exposure
Students 240 40 Completed
Employees 147 52 Completed
Contract/Affiliate (non-employees) 14 2 Completed

CSUN shares information about COVID-19 cases reported to CSUN by an individual or by a public health official. However, to preserve patient confidentiality, CSUN does not report identifiable names, affiliations or health conditions of students, faculty or staff who test positive for COVID-19. The university will also not disclose the specific location of the individual who was infected for privacy reasons. If needed, all campus locations possibly exposed will be appropriately cleaned and disinfected before reopening. Your best protection from COVID-19 is to maintain healthy practices such as physical distancing, wearing a face covering and washing your hands frequently as the best methods to lower your risk when you are outside your home.
