Communicate with your professors immediately . . .
Communicate with your professors immediately and notify them that you have received a “red badge” telling you to stay home in order to arrange academic flexibility. Email your professor a screenshot of your red badge.

Steps to follow if you tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19 . . .

This will help the contact tracing team begin their due diligence to ensure that any exposed students, staff, and/or faculty are able to take appropriate measures to get tested and quarantined as advised by the county/state/federal guidelines.
Please note that findings from the contact tracing investigation will not be made public and your confidentiality including your name will be kept private.
If you’re not feeling well . . .
If you’re not feeling well, please contact Foothill Student Health Services or consult your physician. You may contact Student Health Services by scheduling a free telemedicine appointment.
