What You Need to Know About Covid-19

What You Need to Know About Covid-19 Background Pic


Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is highly contagious and can be fatal. It is spread mainly from person-to-person through respiratory droplets produced by talking, coughing or sneezing, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Studies suggest that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms. Symptoms can appear 2 to 14 days after exposure and include fever, cough and shortness of breath as well as other symptoms, according to the CDC. If you experience any symptoms, contact your health care provider.

Reduce your Risk and Protect Others

You can reduce your risk of contracting the highly contagious respiratory virus by taking the same measures as you would to prevent infection from the flu and the common cold:
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for a least 20 seconds.
  • Use hand sanitizer, with 60-95% alcohol if soap/water is not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Wear a cloth face cover when in a community setting.
  • Social distance, stay at least 6 feet away from other people.
  • Avoid social gatherings of more than 10 people, especially with those with a higher risk of complications.
  • Stay home while you are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow or a tissue when coughing or sneezing, and immediately dispose of the used tissue.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as tables, phones, doorknobs, laptops, etc.

The CDC has a guide for individuals, families and communities on prevention and mitigation of the spread of viruses, including COVID-19. These steps include many of those listed above for personal health, as well as others relevant for broader community efforts.

Follow the CDC’s travel health notices or the U.S. State Department Travel Advisories.

Vulnerable Populations

It is important for the campus community to understand that some people are at a higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 complications. Based on the current data, vulnerable populations may include:

  • People 65 years of age or older
  • Those with serious underlying health condition such as high blood pressure, heart disease, chronic lung, kidney or liver disease, diabetes, severe obesity or moderate to severe asthma
  • People with weakened immune systems
  • Other circumstances that enhance risks associated with COVID-19 exposure or illness.
