We continue to encourage our campus community to take the following precautionary measures to help prevent the spread of this and many other viruses:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • 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.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, and certainly if your commute includes public transit.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
