El Camino College received a confirmed report on 9/1/2021 that two individuals have tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus. To protect patient privacy, these individuals' information is considered confidential and will not be disclosed.
These individuals tested positive on 8/31/2021, and were last on campus on 8/31/2021. These individuals have identified close contacts while on campus, who have been notified, and those individuals who are required to observe the minimum 10-day isolation at home are doing so. The locations where the affected individuals have visited will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected as required. It is important to know that transmission more commonly occurs via sustained face-to-face contact and through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Surface transmission is less common.
The entire El Camino College community sends these individuals sincere wishes for a quick recovery. As always, all El Camino College students and employees are asked to follow the directions given by public health and elected officials during this outbreak. This includes obeying the Health Officer’s most recent orders from Los Angeles County and the State of California.
