Sent: October 27, 2020
From: Traci Ferdolage, Senior Associate Vice President, Facilities Development and Operations

Dear campus community,

SJSU learned on Friday afternoon (October 23) of an individual who has COVID-19 and was in Duncan Hall on Tuesday, October 20. The campus has reported the case to the Santa Clara County Public Health Department. Our COVID-19 case management team has also identified and is reaching out to those who may have been in close contact (as defined by CDC guidelines). 

After learning of the report, the building was cleaned and sanitized with a deeper level of sanitation performed for affected spaces, including high touch point areas like door handles, stairway railings, elevator buttons and bathrooms.   

As always, please continue to self monitor for COVID-19-related symptoms by using the SJSU COVID-19 Symptom Check Tool before coming to campus. If you are feeling ill, do not come to campus for work or in-person classes.  

In order for us to notify students, staff, and faculty in a timely manner, we encourage everyone to notify us using the Report a Case protocol as soon as possible.

Remember to keep the Spartan Community Promise by practicing good hand hygiene, wearing a face cover in public settings, adhering to maximum room occupancies and maintaining physical distancing.
