The table below contains the list of buildings where an individual visited within the last two weeks who either had:
- Tested positive for or had been diagnosed with COVID-19, or
- Been ordered to isolate by a public health official due to COVID-19
This table is automatically updated nightly, so updates are not real-time or immediately refreshed. The table is being provided as a transparency measure, it reflects the email notifications that are already being provided to individual building occupants on a building-by-building basis.
We encourage you to keep in mind several things about this table:
- Being in a building where a COVID-positive person has been present does not mean you have been exposed. Individuals identified as high-risk close contacts are separately notified and given guidance (see below “High-risk close contacts”). All others should follow instructions for all other building occupants.
- One person can visit many buildings in the course of a day. If 10 buildings are listed for a given date, this does not mean that 10 different COVID-positive individuals were on campus on that date. For the latest case numbers in our university community, please see the COVID-19 Dashboards here.
- Stanford University has a high rate of vaccination in our community. Vaccination against COVID-19 is one of the most effective ways to prevent severe illness and hospitalization, as well as keep community spread low. For more information on the university’s vaccination policy, click here.
High-risk close contacts:
With each COVID-19 positive case, our Medical Team initiates our contact tracing process, and any high-risk close contacts to this individual are directly notified of their exposure and advised accordingly. If you do not receive such a notification, you are not known to be a high-risk close contact.
Instructions for all other building occupants:
If you were in a building where a positive case entered, it doesn’t necessarily mean you were exposed; regardless, you should follow the instructions below.
- No need to quarantine: You are NOT REQUIRED to stay at home and quarantine.
- Health Check:
- DO NOT indicate in Health Check that you are a high-risk close contact (unless you were directly contacted and informed of such status).
- Before coming onto campus each day, verify whether or not you feel well.
- At any point, if you notice COVID-like symptoms, such as fever, cough, running/stuffy nose, or shortness of breath:
- Stay home
- Report your symptoms through Health Check.
- Contact your primary health care provider.
- Wear your face covering on campus as directed.
Follow other prevention measures regardless of vaccination status, as these measures significantly reduce the risk of acquiring and spreading COVID-19.
