Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As of June 1, 2023, the student requirement to report positive COVID-19 testing HAS ENDED. Staff and Faculty still need to report to HR.

Stay home if you are sick, inform your instructors if you are absent from class, and contact your healthcare provider for a medical evaluation. It is your responsibility to contact your professors and ask for accommodation if needed.

If you test positive for COVID-19, take the following safety measures to help keep yourself and others safe:

  1. Seek Treatment. If you have symptoms, particularly if you are at higher risk for severe COVID-19, speak with a healthcare provider as soon as you test positive. You may be eligible for antiviral medicines or other treatments for COVID-19. COVID-19 antiviral medicines work best if taken as soon as possible, and within 5-7 days from when symptoms start. 
  2. Stay home if you have COVID-19 symptoms, until you have not had a fever for 24 hours without using fever reducing medication AND other COVID-19 symptoms​ are mild and improving.​
    • ​​​​​​​​​If you do not have symptoms, you should follow the recommendations below to reduce exposure to others.
  3. Mask when you are around other people indoors for the 10 days* after you become sick or test positive (if no symptoms). You may remove your mask sooner than 10 days if you have two sequential negative tests at least one day apart. Day 0 is symptom onset date or positive test date.
  4. Avoid contact with people at higher-risk for severe COVID-19 for 10 days*. Higher-risk individuals include the elderly, those who live in congregate care facilities, those who have immunocompromising conditions, and that put them at higher risk for serious illness. 

The Student Health Center does perform COVID-19 antigen testing by appointment only as needed for eligible, symptomatic students that have been evaluated by the medical provider. Same-day appointments are limited.  We do NOT do COVID-19 Testing for travel or non-symptomatic purposes.

Take Home COVID-19 Tests are available for free at the Student Health Center while supplies last.

This is general information provided as a resource for symptomatic people looking for testing. We are not affiliated with any of the following resources.

POSITIVE TEST-

Reach out to your medical provider, urgent care center, pharmacy, or the CDPH Call Center at 833-422-4255 and ask about prescription COVID-19 medications. Don’t wait until symptoms get worse, the medications must be started within the first 5 days of symptoms to be effective.

COVID-19 medications are widely available and effective for treating COVID-19 to prevent serious illness. They are recommended for most adults, including those older than 50 years, and some teens. While government-purchased supplies last, the medications remain available for free, whether or not you have insurance or citizenship status. Ask your pharmacy if they have free supply available.  

If you have difficulties accessing COVID-19 medication, you can make a free phone or video appointment with a health care provider through California’s COVID-19 telehealth service by visiting sesamecare.com/covid19 or calling 1-855-780-3855.  This program will run to the end of February 2024. Visit YouCanBeatIt.Org for information on additional telehealth options that are available beyond February 2024.

If you test positive for COVID-19, treat it. Call 1-833-422-4255
