If you have a chronic health condition or you’re taking meds that weaken your immune system, wear a mask in indoor public places even if you’re fully vaccinated. In general, you don’t need to wear a mask outside, where it’s harder for the coronavirus to spread. But if COVID-19 cases are high in your area, consider wearing one in crowded outdoor places and for outdoor get-togethers that involve close contact with people who aren’t fully vaccinated. In February 2020, the CDC confirmed a COVID-19 infection in California in a person who had not traveled to an affected area or been exposed to someone with the disease.
Since the beginning of the semester ASU has tested 55 percent of students living on campus and has tested 17 percent of students living off campus. The incidence of testing has increased as we launched periodic testing of a statistically significant percentage of our student and employee population. ASU maintains a low positive incidence with students and an even lower positive incidence with faculty and staff. Total positive tests reported for September 7, 2021 is 1,982. Total positive tests reported for September 13, 2021 is 2,278.

With other coronaviruses that only causecolds, you have a period that you’re immune, but that goes away over time. Immunity is estimated to last at least three to four months. There have been cases of reinfection reported, but the CDC says they’re rare. You may have mild flu-like symptoms for a few days after exposure, then get better.
Monitoring & Diagnostic Testing
A total of 1,765 students live in university housing on the ASU Downtown Phoenix campus; 619 students live on the ASU West campus; and 867 students live on the ASU Polytechnic campus. The majority of courses are delivered to students digitally through ASU Sync and iCourses. A limited number of courses that do not translate to a digital environment such as labs and performing arts, are offered in-person, on-campus at a reduced capacity. All faculty, staff and students are required to comply with public health requirements. Instruction is delivered to students by faculty in a hybrid fashion.
