      FILL OUT A HEALTH CHECK: To report symptoms or exposure to COVID-19, fill out an Employee Health Check Form. This form is critical to trigger a campus response from Contract Tracers, Public Safety, Custodial Services and more. Employees should also notify their managers.

      ISOLATION AND QUARANTINE: Mt. SAC follows guidelines from LA County Public Health. 
      Isolation keeps someone who is sick or tested positive for COVID-19 without symptoms away from others. In Los Angeles County, if you have COVID-19, you must: (1) isolate yourself, (2) wear a mask indoors and outdoors) and (3) tell your close contacts they have been exposed and need to follow instructions for close contacts. Learn more about Isolation guidelines Los Angeles County public healthQuarantine is used to keep someone who has been exposed to a person with COVID-19 away from others. They are sometimes called close contacts. Quarantine helps prevent the spread of disease before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms.

      CONTACT TRACERS: Work with  our Contact Tracing Department to learn more about how to respond to symptoms and COVID-19 exposures, as well as identify people who are close contacts and would need to take additional precautions. Phone: (909) 274-6900,  Email:
