COVID-19 Isolation and Quarantine FAQ’s:

We know there are questions about COVID-19 protocols and when to report, self-isolate and/or self-quarantine.  Please see the following FAQs to help you understand the current protocol so we can have a healthy and successful fall together.

If I have tested positive for COVID-19, am experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 and suspect that I have COVID-19, or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, how do I report?

To report the positive result, symptoms or exposure, please use the CSUF COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form. CSUF’s COVID-19 Response Team reviews the incident report and provides official guidance concerning self-isolation, self-quarantine, testing, or return to work requirements.

I have tested positive for COVID-19. How long do I have to self-isolate?

You must self-isolate for 10 days. This is true regardless of your vaccination/booster status, prior infection history and/or whether you are symptomatic. However, you may test out of self-isolation after day 5.  A member of the university’s COVID-19 Response Team will review with you the circumstances necessary to end your self-isolation

I am symptomatic and suspect I have COVID-19. Do I have to self-isolate?

You must self-isolate. This is true regardless of your vaccination/booster status, prior infection history and/or whether you are symptomatic. Whether you need to continue to self-isolate depends on your initial test results and other factors. A member of the university’s COVID-19 Response Team will review with you the circumstances necessary to determine when you may return to work.

I have been identified as a close contact. Do I need to self-quarantine?

You do not have to self-quarantine initially. This is true regardless of your vaccination/booster status, prior infection history and/or whether you are symptomatic. To continue working on campus depends in part on taking a COVID-19 test. A member of the university’s COVID-19 Response Team will review with you the circumstances necessary to determine whether you can remain on campus.

Please note, if you work in the police station, the student health center or the counseling center, and have been identified as a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case, your vaccination/booster status will determine whether you need to self-quarantine and for how long. A member of the university’s COVID-19 Response Team will review with you the circumstances necessary to determine whether you can remain at work.

I may have been exposed to a COVID-19 positive case but not as a close contact. Do I need to self-quarantine?

No. Monitor daily for symptoms related to COVID-19. Information about COVID-19 positive cases on campus is updated daily on the university’s COVID-19 dashboard.

How were the employee COVID-19 isolation and quarantine protocols established?

Our isolation and quarantine protocols were established by California Department Public Health (CDPH). CDPH guidance changes as conditions change. These FAQs are designed to give our community an overview of the current protocol. These should not be used to guide decisions. Instead, employees who have tested positive, a recent exposure, or suspect they have COVID-19 should use the CSUF COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form so contact tracers can provide specific guidance to them directly.
