Recommended CDC Prevention Measures

Symptoms of the Coronavirus appear within two to 14 days after exposure and include fever, cough and shortness of breath. For people who have traveled to China or other areas impacted by the virus or have had close contact with someone infected with the novel Coronavirus and have developed symptoms, contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible and tell them about your symptoms and your exposure to a patient with the Coronavirus. Currently, there is no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 nor is there a medicine to treat it specifically but your medical care provider can provide recommendations for what steps you need to take.
There are simple daily precautions one can take to prevent the spread of the virus, flu or cold:

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water and for at least 20 seconds each time.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill.
  • Cough or sneeze into your clothing sleeve.
  • Do not reuse tissues after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched such as doorknobs, keyboards and telephones.
  • Refrain from coming to campus if you are sick.
