Preventative measures

Preventative Measures

Help reduce the spread of COVID-19 by getting the vaccine when it is available to you and the the following preventative measures.

The most important way you can protect yourself from the virus as well as others is to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
No physical distance
No physical distancing or barriers between workers are required. If you are unvaccinated, you must maintain 6 feet apart from others while eating or drinking indoors.
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.
Wear a face covering

If you are unvaccinated, please continue to wear a mask indoors. Upon request, UCI will provide voluntary-use respirators.

*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).

Don't touch your face
Don't touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
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.
