Chapman follows the CDC guidelines of quarantine until at least 10 days have passed since the onset of symptoms, and no fever for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication use and other symptoms have improved. Students can be provided campus housing to quarantine, and employees/contracted staff are asked to not return to campus until this criterion is met. Additionally, consistent with the protocols for infectious disease response, anyone identified within our campus community as being at risk of exposure from these individuals will be notified if they need to be isolated or tested. You can review the full protocol for positive cases here.


If you are a member of the Chapman community and are living in Chapman housing or in housing near Orange or Irvine and are experiencing symptoms or have received a confirmed diagnosis, please contact Karen Beam RN, Student Health Center, (657) 348-1340,


To help limit the spread of COVID-19, please maintain a safe distance from others, wear a face mask or covering over your mouth and nose and wash your hands regularly. If we all follow the CU Staying Healthy protocols we can limit the spread of COVID-19.

As we slowly increase the access to Chapman campuses, we will take any action we deem advisable to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community even if not required under state guidance. We may alter limitations to campus access if the situation on or around the campuses were to change, such as:

    • Issuance of new federal, state, or local mandates that impact Chapman and the surrounding areas
    • Changes to our county’s status on  Gov. Newsom’s blueprint for opening California
    • Numbers of cases requiring action as prescribed in the COVID-19 Industry Guidance: Institutions of Higher Education
    • Significant increases in COVID-19 transmission on our campuses occur at a rate significantly different from that of our surrounding community
    • Significant increases in COVID-19 transmission within our surrounding community
    • Evidence that our university community is disregarding the CU Staying Healthy protocols
    • Significant changes in the availability of COVID-19 tests, essential PPE, or other required protective wear such as face coverings, due to logistics, supply chain or other factors
    • Changes in available healthcare capacity within our local healthcare facilities
