COVID-19 UPDATE: EMPLOYEE AND STUDENT TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19

Provided by DMC College Relations
Del Mar College Update

Del Mar College has received information that one employee and one student have tested positive for COVID-19. The employee and student were immediately instructed to self-isolate; the two cases are not related. After following College health and safety protocols, it was determined that no one had close contact with the student while on campus. The employee had close contact with two additional DMC employees. Those employees have been asked to quarantine.

The area on the East Campus where the exposures occurred has been disinfected. Those who were identified as being exposed to the virus (per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines) while on DMC property were personally notified by a DMC representative.

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