SF State highly encourages its employees to continue to follow the guidance of health experts and to enroll in California’s statewide exposure notification system.

Any student, faculty, staff member or visitor to campus must report to SF State’s CTST suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 and close contacts with individuals who have COVID-19. SF State’s CTST will notify SFDPH of such reports and follow their direction in support of contact tracing. The identity of individuals with COVID-19 and their close contacts will not be disclosed publicly.  Access an online form to report potential or confirmed exposure to COVID-19. 

Although the risk of COVID-19 transmission by touching a contaminated surface is low, SF State has enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols in accordance with the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA), CDC and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) best practices to further reduce the risk of infection.
