Cal Poly provides COVID-19 testing through its Campus Health and Wellbeing only to currently enrolled students. These numbers reflect only positive cases identified directly through Campus Health and Wellbeing. Students can also access testing off campus.

The university does not offer testing to employees. Employees who test positive for COVID-19 are reflected in countywide and community-specific statistics (for their community of residence), available at the San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department webpage.

ISOLATION

Students who test positive for COVID-19 are placed in isolation in on-campus University Housing facilities and provided with direct dining, laundry and other support services. Per the CDC, an individual who has tested positive can leave isolation if it has been 10 days since their symptoms first appeared, they haven’t had a fever in at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications, and their symptoms have improved.

QUARANTINE
