What do I do if I learn that a student is ill? 

It is important that students who are ill not report to campus until medically cleared. Please tell the student to call their primary health care provider or seek outside evaluation. Students may also call the Student Health Center for non-COVID 19 illnesses/concerns. Resources regarding COVID-19 testing can be found here if needed. If you find out that a student is positive for COVID-19, please email your dean and Student Health at shcs@csueastbay.eduPlease note, students may have to submit a generic note of clearance, but they are not obligated to disclose a diagnosis or any health information to faculty/staff.
