Health Updates

Health Services advises students to take everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of many respiratory viruses:

•Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use alcohol-based (60% or greater) hand sanitizer after coughing, sneezing, or throwing a used tissue in the garbage.

•Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

•Avoid close contact with people who are sick and practice social distancing when in contact with others. 

•Stay home when you are sick.

•Cover coughs and sneezes with your upper arm or a tissue. Never cough in the direction of someone else, and throw tissues in the garbage immediately.

•Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

•Monitor your health and contact us or your local healthcare provider if you experience a fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea, or loss of smell/ taste.
