* 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.

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
