What to know about COVID

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have reported a nationwide uptick in hospital admissions due to COVID. While experts say there’s no cause for alarm, it’s important that you take a few simple steps to protect yourself and your community.

Follow common-sense health practices.

  • Wash your hands, don’t touch your face, avoid close contact with people who are sick and consider wearing a mask in crowded indoor spaces.

Get the vaccinations and boosters you’re eligible for.

  • You can get vaccines at pharmacies and health care providers, including the Center for Health and Well-Being. The newest boosters are expected to be available in late September or early October.

If you have symptoms, seek medical treatment.

If you test positive for COVID, follow advice from Student Health and Well-Being. 

  • Taking the proper precautions can help ensure you don’t pass the illness on to others.
