A person who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 attended your UCSB class ENGL 25 LECTURE in GIRV 1004 on 4/4/2022 at 1:00-1:50pm. You may have had an exposure to this COVID-19 case if you attended on this date(s). If you have any current symptoms suggestive of COVID-19, please obtain a COVID-19 test and isolate until the results are known.

In the classroom setting, it is difficult to assess if you might be a “close contact” (within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more), which could require quarantine precautions after exposure to COVID-19, so we are notifying everyone in the class for your information. If you are up-to-date on your COVID-19 vaccinations, including a booster shot if eligible, you do not need to stay home after an exposure, as long as you have no symptoms of COVID-19. Only those who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated would need to quarantine if they believe they were in close contact with a COVID-19 case.

After an exposure, the California Department of Public Health recommends that you obtain a COVID-19 test now and 5 days after the exposure.

COVID-19 tests are available at UCSB without charge through weekday appointments from the Student Health Patient Portal. You can pick up a self-collection kit for this PCR test at various locations on campus or at the Loma Pelona COVID-19 testing center, and then make an appointment for a quick drop-off at Loma Pelona. (If you obtain a positive test result off-campus, including through a home rapid antigen test, please upload your positive result through the Student Health Patient Portal under “Messages,” then “New Message.”)

Please be alert to any symptoms of COVID-19, which are listed in your UCSB Daily COVID-19 Screening Survey, since COVID-19 can develop up to 14 days after an exposure to a confirmed case.

We encourage everyone to activate CA NOTIFY on their smartphones, which allows anonymous COVID-19 exposure notifications to close contacts.

General questions can be directed to our UCSB COVID-19 Call Center at , or (805) 893-3113 Monday through Friday 8am – 4pm, and students may consult with Student Health clinician through the QLess line during weekday business hours.
