Preventative measures

Preventative Measures

Reducing the spread of viruses starts with basic hygiene. Here are preventative measures that you can follow to keep our community healthy. 

Stay 6 feet apart
Stay at least 6 feet apart (about 2 arms' length) from other people
Cover your cough
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. If you don't have a tissue, cover your mouth with your elbow when you cough or sneeze.
Don't touch your face
Don't touch your eyes, nose or mouth
Wear a face covering

When in public, wear a cloth face covering over your nose and mouth.

*How to request face covering exemptions

Wash hands thoroughly

Always wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. *It's not the water temperature, but the time you take rubbing the hands (20 seconds).

Stay at home

If you are sick, stay home and do not travel. Call ahead before visiting your doctor or the Student Health Center to arrange a time to be seen.

Clean surfaces often

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
