COVID-19 Updates

Positive Test with symptoms
(regardless of vaccination status)

Updated based on guidance issued by CDPH on January 9, 2024.

ISOLATION REQUIRED.  Do not come to campus or an off-campus work/in-person learning activity location  until you have not had a fever for at least one day without using fever reducing medication AND symptoms are mild and improving. The day you started feeling symptoms or tested positive (whichever comes first) is considered day zero. 

Fresno State Student Housing resident:  Immediately notify Student Housing at 559.278.2677.

Employees:  Notify your supervisor.

Submit a COVID report. This is essential if you plan to request leave from in-person activities, or need more time to complete course assignments. The email response you receive is proof that you have submitted the report, and it provides next step guidance.  

A test result from an alternate testing provider [Student Health & Counseling Center (for students only), personal healthcare provider or a community testing center (see My Turn Find a testing site)], or a Rapid Antigen Test kit are all acceptable.*

* If you've previously recovered from COVID in the last 90 days, the only acceptable positive test result would be from a Rapid Antigen Test. 

You may return to in-person activities: 

  • When you have not had a fever for 24 hours without the aid of taking fever-reducing medication AND your other symptoms are mild and improving.
  • You are required to wear a face covering when participating in in-person activities through the 10th day following the date you tested positive.
    • If you test negative on two non-consecutive days, you may stop wearing a mask on campus. 
  • Avoid contact with people at higher-risk for severe COVID-19 for 10 days. 

Testing documentation required upon request: test result from alternate testing provider, or photo of the positive Rapid Antigen Test kit (or save the actual test kit strip) with your name/date of the test clearly written on the test kit strip.
