In case a student, staff, or a faculty member is diagnosed with COVID19 (reports positive lab test) SDSU-G community will be notified, guidance will be provided by the respective national authorities.

In case a student, staff, or a faculty member has COVID 19 symptoms (but there is no test confirmation yet) SDSU-G community can be recommended to self-isolate until the test results are available. The institution is authorized to issue such a recommendation for health and safety purposes of its community, but the recommendation is not legally binding.
