Reporting a Positive COVID-19 Case

The "Report a Positive COVID-19 Case" form is available via the MyCompton portal and includes questions necessary to determine quarantine and isolation guidelines and assist with contact tracing.


Refer to the LACDPH "COVID-19 Guidance for Education" (updated 4/3/2024). These guidelines aim to support safe in-person learning in LA County by detailing preventive strategies and actions. They apply to Early Care and Education (ECE) sites, TK-12 schools, youth programs, and Institutes of Higher Education (IHE).


In most circumstances, masking may be recommended for individuals in the community based on the level of COVID-19 in the community, as reported by weekly CDC COVID-19 Hospital Admission Levels.

Wearing a mask is a great way to reduce the spread of respiratory infections, including COVID-19. Click here to view the LACDPH Mask guidance.

Maintenance and Operations has established pandemic-era service and enhanced cleaning and disinfection service. 

Following the CDC Cleaning & Disinfecting Information prioritize cleaning high-touch surfaces and areas that are used most frequently and those that entail intensive hands-on engagement with equipment, such as in CTE or STEM labs.

Compton College provides individuals responsible for the cleaning and disinfection of facilities with the appropriate PPE.

Responsibility of Individuals (Employees and Students):

  • Students and employees are encouraged to keep their personal items (e.g., cell phones, other electronics) and personal workspaces clean.
  • Students and employees are encouraged to use disinfectant wipes to wipe down shared desks, lab equipment, and other shared objects and surfaces before and after use.
  •  Use of shared objects (e.g., lab equipment, computer equipment, desks) should be limited when possible or cleaned between use with safe cleaning methods.
  • Avoid sharing electronic devices, books, pens, and other learning aids.
  • Individual offices/programs may develop a schedule for increased, routine cleaning and disinfection within their area. Employees are provided time during their shifts to implement cleaning practices. Cleaning assignments should be assigned during working hours as part of the employee's job duties.
