Coronavirus Health Information

  • Symptoms
    The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure:
    • Fever
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath
  • Prevention Methods
    There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Our entire college community is encouraged to practice preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases:
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
    If you do not feel well, stay home except to get medical care. Call your doctor before going to their office, but be sure to get care if you feel worse or think it’s an emergency. Avoid public transportation.
