The California State University shall notify the parent or guardian of each pupil for whom the assessment has detected health problems and shall recommend further consultation with a physician. If there is no physician available, the coordinating center shall direct the parent or guardian to an appropriate medical referral. Under no circumstances shall a school, the California State University, or the University of California be held liable for the parent or guardian's action, or failure to take action on seeking medical care for the identified health problem. This section is not applicable to alcohol, drug, and tobacco use.
