Announcing three new positive COVID-19 cases among our staff members this week. Review our testing data
To the Oxy Community:
In keeping with our protocols, I write to inform you that there were three new positive COVID-19 cases among our staff members this week.
All positive individuals are isolated at home for 10 days. Those who had close contact (less than 6 feet for 10 minutes or more) with the individuals who tested positive have been notified and are quarantining at home. If you have not been contacted about this case, you have not been identified as being at risk of exposure.
In keeping with our policy, the staff members will not return to campus until after a 10 day period of isolation/quarantine. As mentioned in my previous Thanksgiving/winter break emails, I highly recommend that all individuals work remotely if their position allows them to do so and not travel or attend gatherings with individuals outside your home during this highly infectious surge period in Los Angeles and around the world.
