Campus Status: Open to All LMU Students, Staff, and Faculty
- For the latest Los Angeles County figures, please visit the county's COVID-19 Surveillance Dashboard.
- LMU records lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases for individuals who have been on campus or participated in approved university activity during their infectious period. Isolation and/or quarantine is counted and tracked for LMU students, employees, contract employees and visitors who have ongoing access to campus.
- Per L.A. County Public Health code, fully vaccinated individuals who may have been exposed are not counted on the dashboard unless they receive a confirmed positive test.
Isolation is required for individuals who are lab confirmed COVID-positive, or are presumed to have COVID-19 by a medical provider. If they test negative, they will not be considered a COVID-19 lab confirmed case but must continue to isolate until they are fever-free for the prescribed hours and have experienced an improvement in symptoms. Home isolation guidelines.
Individuals who have had close contact with a lab-confirmed COVID-19 case and who are not fully vaccinated should follow the quarantine instructions for their respective vaccination status. An individual may move from quarantine to isolation if they develop symptoms and are suspected to have COVID-19 or receive a lab-confirmed positive COVID test. Please view LACDPH home quarantine guidelines. Note that per L.A. County Public Health, employees who are fully vaccinated and exposed to a lab-confirmed positive case are not required to modify their activity; students who are fully vaccinated and exposed to a lab-confirmed positive case are not required to fully quarantine as they are permitted to follow a modified quarantine.
- Multiple cases, even if simultaneous, do not always constitute a cluster or an outbreak. A cluster or an outbreak is defined by the L.A. County Department of Public Health as three (3) or more epidemiologically-linked cases within a 14-day period. Epidemiologically linked cases include persons with identifiable connections to each other such as sharing a physical space (e.g. in a classroom, office, or gathering), indicating a higher likelihood of linked spread of disease in that setting rather than sporadic transmission from the broader community.
- Los Angeles County data is provided by and updated by Los Angeles County Office of Emergency Management from the SDE data source through automated scripting. L.A. County runs the script daily at 4 pm and finishes around 4:15 pm.
