El Camino College received a confirmed report on July 28 that a member of the campus community has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus. To protect patient privacy, the individual’s information is considered confidential and will not be disclosed.
This individual was last on campus July 23. It has been confirmed that proper social distancing guidelines were followed at all times and there was no close contact with other individuals.

As always, all El Camino College students and employees are asked to follow the directions given by public health officials and elected officials during this outbreak. This includes obeying the stay-at-home orders from Los Angeles County and the State of California, following correct social distancing practices, and continuing to maintain proper hygiene.
