FAQs

Assembly Bill 685 requires employers to notify all employees who were at a worksite of all potential exposures to COVID-19 and notify the local public health agency of outbreaks.  

Under California State Assembly Bill 685 (AB 685), Cal Poly Pomona is required to provide notification of potential workplace exposure to COVID-19 within one business day after a laboratory confirmed positive case is reported to the university. In some cases, the university receives a delayed report and is not made aware of a positive case until days later. Other situations that may delay notification include the timing of the test (when the test was taken) and how long it takes for test results to be available. Once notified, the university will provide notification within one business day on this webpage.

 

Data on this webpage is updated daily on business days (Monday to Friday) around 4 p.m. and includes reports from the previous business day. For example, the website update on Monday afternoon will include reports from the previous Friday and Saturday.
