Del Mar College Update
(June 2 at 4:50 p.m.)

This morning, Del Mar College received information that a guest who was on campus for a meeting with college employees was notified of a confirmed exposure to COVID-19. As a result, the six college employees who were attending the meeting have been asked to self-isolate.

While there is currently no positive COVID-19 test result for the guest, the College is following internal health and safety protocols. The six employees who have been asked to self-isolate will be re-evaluated once test results related to the exposure are verified. One other employee associated with the meeting, but did not have direct contact with the guest, was asked to self-monitor for symptoms.

The area on campus in which the potential exposure occurred is being disinfected.

As of today, test results involving another DMC employee who was asked to self-isolate due to a potential exposure reported last Friday, May 29, are not complete.

The health and safety of our students and employees remain our top priority at Del Mar College. All College facilities remained closed to the public. Only restricted access for approved employees and designated students is allowed at this time.
