CSUB reports more COVID-19 cases on campus


Chase Anderson, Reporter

CSUB Public Safety sent out an email regarding two individuals on campus that have been diagnosed with COVID-19 infection on Mon. Nov. 16. These individuals were potentially contagious and were on campus from Nov. 11 to Nov. 16.  

 The Public Safety department stated that any individuals these two may have had contact with on campus have been notified and the proper safety precautions are being taken by CSUB’s COVID Case Manager, Erika Delmar.     

CSUB cannot release any personal information on these infected individuals as it is the job of the Kern County Department of Public Health Services to identify, track, and contact any people who may have come into contact with these two.  

CSUB urges people to remain practicing preventative measures outlined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention that included maintaining a safe distance from one another being at least 6 feet apart, wear a face mask when in public, and to remain home if you are feeling sick.  

If you are experiencing any symptoms of raspatory illness, this includes fever, coughing, shortness of breath, contact your healthcare provider, and contact Delmar at 661-654-3453 or complete the COVID-19 reporting form at https://linktr.ee/csubshs.  Students can track CSUB’s COVID-19 cases at csub.edu/covid-19. 

 These safety precautions remain a major issue in Kern County as California Governor Gavin Newsom has announced that Kern County, along with all of Southern California, will recede back into the purple tier of the states re-opening plan.
