Fullerton College has learned of three cases of COVID-19 on-campus in the last weekly reporting cycle.
On June 22, two asymptomatic student-athletes learned of their positive results during routine testing provided to students who participate in sports conditioning classes. The students, who are fully vaccinated, received their results on June 23 and were immediately advised to start a period of isolation per CDC guidelines. Both students were on-campus on June 23. Sixteen students/employees are considered “close-contact exposures,” four being coach employees. All 16 individuals have been notified and those who are unvaccinated have been advised to quarantine per CDC guidelines and will retest approximately five days post-exposure. Vaccinated individuals do not need to quarantine per CDC guidelines.
Additionally, on June 19, a Fullerton College employee tested positive for COVID-19. The employee was last on-campus June 14 and worked independently. The college conducted contact tracing in accordance with published CDC guidelines and determined that no one else needs to quarantine.
Fullerton College releases information about on-campus COVID exposures on Fridays if an exposure occurred in the week prior. In the event anyone is directly impacted by an exposure or a potential exposure on campus, they will receive guidance from the college before and apart from the public announcements.
