Health and Safety
The health of our campus is very important. As with any communicable
illness, we encourage students, faculty and staff to always take
precautions to avoid becoming sick. Please review CDC
guidelines on preventative measures.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- 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.
- Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
- CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a
facemask to protect themselves from respiratory
diseases, including COVID-19.
- Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of
COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to
others. The use of facemasks 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).
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20
seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating;
and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
