CSE Return to Campus Requests

CSE Return to Campus Requests must be approved by CSE CEO, Mary Sidney, prior to the campus Emergency Operations Center (EOC) review.  If return is authorized by CSE, the request will be submitted to campus EOC for assessment.  Submit CSE requests to CSE representatives, Gina McCammon ( and Coleen Stewart (  

Departments should read the Return to Campus Guidelines and Expectations(opens in new window) before completing the Return to Campus Request. Campus repopulations will be tightly controlled and coordinated to mitigate potential risks and ensure the safety of students, faculty, and staff, as well as the communities we serve. No unit or department shall return faculty, staff or student employees to campus without appropriate authorization. Requests to return to campus will be evaluated through a process of risk and resource assessment to establish approval, prioritization, and sequence.  CSE and the EOC will be reviewing each department’s applicable risk assessment and prevention protocols before employees or students are permitted to return to campus.

Workers' Compensation - Mandatory Reporting of Confirmed COVID Cases

California legislature passed Senate Bill (SB) 1159 on September 17, 2020 creating new reporting requirements for employers with any employee that tests positive for COVID-19.   When an employer “knows or reasonably should know that an employee has tested positive for COVID-19”, the employer must report to its claims administrator specific information within three business days.  To meet this state requirement, all CSE Supervisors and Managers, upon notification by a CSE employee that he/she has tested positive for COVID-19, must complete the “California SB 1159 Reporting” form below and submit via email to This reporting requirement does not apply to employees who are working from home 100% of the time.
