Safer Return at Cal Poly Pomona

Notification of Potential Workplace Exposure to COVID-19

Effective January 1, 2024, California State Assembly Bill 685 (AB 685) has ended, removing Cal Poly Pomona's obligation to inform employees, vendors, and contractors of potential COVID-19 exposure on this webpage. Nevertheless, the university remains dedicated to implementing safety measures for the campus community's well-being. Going forward, close contacts will receive direct email notifications with instructions to follow, instead of relying on the website. For any inquiries, please reach out to

*Close contact as defined by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) is someone sharing the same indoor space, e.g., home, clinic waiting room, airplane, etc., for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period (for example, there are individual 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes) during an infected person’s (laboratory-confirmed or clinical diagnosis) infectious period.
