Potential Worksite Exposure Reporting (AB 685)

New Reporting Requirement in 2021

Starting Jan. 1, UC Davis will report all potential worksite exposures to COVID-19, as required by new Cal/OSHA standards (AB 685). If a qualifying individual enters a worksite and is later diagnosed with COVID-19, the table below reports the building name and dates during their infectious period.

The new standard requires the university to provide notification when a potential exposure has occurred. A general email will be sent to anyone who has completed a Daily Symptom Survey within the last 14 days.

If you were in a worksite where a potential exposure occurred, it doesn’t necessarily mean you were exposed. If you require quarantine as a close contact, then a member of the UC Davis contact tracing team will contact you directly. A close contact is defined as someone within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes cumulative over 24 hours.

* AB 685 requires notification when a qualifying individual has been in a worksite (e.g., buildings, stores, facilities, agricultural fields and other locations) during their infectious period. The California Department of Public Health defines the infectious period as 2 days before an infected person first develops symptoms (or 2 days before an asymptomatic test) until 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared, and at least 24 hours have passed with no fever (without the use of fever-reducing medications), and other symptoms have improved. 

Support for Employees

UC Davis is committed to supporting employees and their families during the COVID-19 emergency. Know what leave resources and job protections are available to help. Academic personnel may find helpful resources on the Academic Affairs website

If you believe you contracted a COVID-19-related illness as a result of your university employment, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits through the university. This may include hospital, surgical, and medical treatment, disability indemnity, and death benefits. For more information, please see the Workers’ Compensation web page.  

If you require quarantine as a close contact, designated by the UC Davis contact tracing team or a member of a County Public Health Department, then you are entitled to continue to receive your full pay and all other employee rights and benefits, provided that (1) you are able and available to work during the period; and (2) your exposure to or illness from COVID-19 was work-related.

More information about employee resources related to COVID-19 can be found on the Information for Academics and Staff webpage. 

Cleaning Protocols for Facilities

Custodial Services has developed protocols for responding to different sanitization scenarios – from high traffic areas to spaces where an infected person has been. Learn more about cleaning protocols during COVID-19.

The Facilities Response Matrix provides more details and a flow chart for understanding how decisions are made for on-campus response to facility exposure risk.

If it is determined that there is a facility exposure risk, then Safety Services will work with the facility manager to potentially close the building area and install signs. Preview the building area closed sign
