Preventative Tips

We encourage all members of our community to follow these preventative tips. Preventative tips will also be displayed on digital signs across campus.

  • Wash Your Hands - Use soap and water and wash for at least 20 seconds. Alcohol based hand sanitizers are also effective.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth; germs spread this way.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or cough and sneeze in your sleeve. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Do not share food or drinks.
  • Drink plenty of fluids and eat a healthy diet.
  • Get plenty of rest - 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night
  • Moderate exercise helps prevent colds and flu.  
  • The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
  • Face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to  others. The use of face masks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Stay home if you are sick or if an immediate member of your family is sick.
