Dear Campus Community,
A campus consultant has tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus). The person was last on campus March 16.
Merced County Department of Public Health officials have now contacted those with whom the person has interacted, urging them to self-quarantine through March 30 and to report any symptoms.
We are working closely with Merced County health officials on this matter. If either university or county officials have not contacted you, there is no need for you to take any extraordinary action at this time.
Remember to maintain personal hygiene, and keep up to date with guidance from UC Merced, the University of California, the CDC and other credible sources of information at our COVID-19 Emergency Management site .
We remain committed to the health and safety of every member of our campus and will continue to provide updates as we have them.
The information about this incident is being reported to you in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.
