UC Merced Potential COVID-19 Exposures (AB 685) for the last 14 days

Last Updated: January 25, 2023

The AB685 standard requires the university to provide notification when a potential exposure has occurred.  A general email will be sent to the campus community with a link to the table below.  If a qualifying individual enters a worksite and is later diagnosed with COVID-19, this table reports the building name and dates during their infectious period.

For information on COVID-19-related benefits to which you may be entitled, please see Human Resources - COVID-19 Related Resources.

For information on COVID-19 cleaning and disinfection guidelines, please see Environmental Health & Safety - COVID-19 Cleaning Guidance Resources.

AB685 requires UC Merced to provide notice to all unions of any employee (including those not represented by a union) who tested positive for COVID-19 and who worked at UC Merced facilities and to provide the name, job title, date of onset of illness, and location of the worksite. Any employee who does not want their identity to be disclosed in this notification must request anonymity by filling out this form. If you do not fill out this form, your name and job title will be disclosed to the unions if you test positive for the virus.
