Latest covid PROTOCOLS

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CAL/OSHA) and other state and county government agencies eased requirements relating to COVID-19 protocols. These changes reinforce the focus of responsibility to manage COVID-19 on individuals rather than institutions. Chapman University’s protocol is that any faculty, staff and students with symptoms or who has been exposed to COVID-19 should get tested.

Please see the CU Staying Healthy Covid Resources page to learn more about low-exposure notices and how to report a positive COVID-19 test to the Chapman University Internal Contact Tracing Team email at 

Low Exposure Notice for Chapman Students

Low exposure notifications are used to notify students that a COVID-19 case has been identified in a communal setting (i.e. classrooms, gyms, and community areas). Please see the dashboard below for the list of locations and dates identified.

The risk of developing COVID-19 from this exposure is low, however, you should monitor yourself for symptoms of infection for 14 days from this exposure. Signs and symptoms may include: fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, fatigue, congestion, headaches, and body aches.

You do not need to be quarantined and you may access campus as normal. However, if you start to experience any of these symptoms you should stay home and follow up with the Student Health Center for follow-up testing.

For those who test positive either through on-campus or off-campus testing, we still require that you report the positive result. For questions and concerns about this notice or to report a positive result, email our Chapman University Internal Contact Tracing team at

AB Potential Exposure Notice for Chapman Employees

There was an individual in each building listed in the chart below who has tested positive for COVID-19.

This is a notice of a potential exposure. The purpose of this notification is to encourage you to monitor for any symptom development and to provide transparency throughout the Chapman community.

Staff required to be onsite will continue to be required to be onsite even after such a notification unless they experience COVID-like symptoms. Anyone with a documented and approved exemption can continue to work remotely.

If you have questions about this notice, please do not hesitate to contact Chapman University’s COVID-19 Internal Contact Tracing team at
