Health and Safety
The health of our campus is very important. As with any communicable illness, we encourage students, faculty and staff to always take precautions to avoid becoming sick. Please review CDC
guidelines on preventative measures.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing
measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
COVID-19 symptoms may include fever, muscle or body aches, sore throat and cough, fatigue and headaches. If you or anyone you know has traveled to countries designated by CDC as Level 2 or higher — where
widespread transmission has occurred (see
here for latest list) — or has been in close contact with a traveler to one of these countries and are exhibiting any of these symptoms, we advise that you follow guidelines recommended by the CDC.
