Under Title 17, Section 2500, California Code of Regulations - all suspected outbreaks are reportable.
At least 3 laboratory-confirmed cases with symptomatic or asymptomatic COVID-19 within a 14-day period who are epidemiologically linked, who do not share a household, and are not close contacts of each other outside of the outbreak site (except when housing or transportation is provided by the employer); OR at least 5% of the facility census are laboratory-confirmed cases (symptomatic or asymptomatic), with a minimum of 5 laboratory-confirmed, within a 14-day period, and in the absence of identifiable epidemiological links.
NOTE: Epidemiologically linked cases include persons with identifiable connections to each other, such as being present the same setting during the same time period (e.g., same shift/department, same physical work area) within likely timing of exposure and without other more likely sources of exposure. Epidemiologic links indicate a higher likelihood of transmission of disease between cases compared to sporadic incidence. Cases sharing housing or transportation provided by the employer are evaluated as individual cases as employer-provided facilities are considered an extension of the worksite.Symptomatic illness compatible with COVID-19:

HIGH PRIORITY OUTBREAKS
A close contact is a person with exposure to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 during the period of infectiousness of the case. This is from 2 days before symptom onset (or date of first positive lab test for asymptomatic persons) until the case meets criteria for discontinuing isolation/transmission-based precautions.
Exposures are generally defined as:
Quarantine Instructions for Contacts
Note: CDC does not recommend testing, symptom monitoring or special management for people exposed to asymptomatic people with potential exposures to SARS-CoV-2 (i.e., "contacts of contacts"), these people are not considered exposed to SARS-CoV-2.
