Positive Cases

The following are positive COVID-19 cases members of the campus community have reported to the district. We understand some people want more details, but we must balance this concern with the need, by law, to respect the privacy of those diagnosed. We cannot provide information that would serve to identify any of them.
 Per our protocols, we are keeping the campus community informed and notifying the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. In all cases, the district took the following actions:

  • Extensive contact tracing
  • Determination of exposures to others
  • Verified that no cases are linked
  • Provided information to directly affected employees and students
  • Cleaning/disinfecting in excess of CDC guidelines

In cases where contact tracing showed that members of the campus community were exposed to the virus, the district notified those individuals who were exposed and, as a precaution, sent an email notification to the campus community. Links to the content of those notifications can be found below.

Please remember to respect people’s privacy. If you have additional information about these cases, please do not share it with anyone as it may be considered a HIPAA violation. Additionally, as a reminder, exposure can happen when a COVID-positive person has close contact with others. Close contact is defined as prolonged contact (15 or more minutes within six feet, or unprotected direct contact to body fluids).
