Campus Community,

We write to share with you that Sonoma State University was notified today of a presumed positive case of COVID-19 on campus. The date of exposure associated with this case is March 11 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. occurring at the Children’s School. 
Individuals who are determined to have had direct contact with the COVID presumed positive person have been contacted by the COVID Monitoring Team based on university records and exposure investigations. Additionally, families with children attending the Children’s School have received direct communication from the school. 
Due to this presumptive case, no buildings or areas will be closed, as the areas in which the COVID infected individual was present have already been cleaned. 

Our primary focus is the health and safety of our campus community, and our mission remains empowering every student for success. The situation regarding COVID-19 continues to evolve in our region, and we must remain collectively vigilant. In compliance with HIPAA privacy rules, SSU will not release any identifying information involving the private healthcare of one of our campus community members.
