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.
- The Center for Health and Well-Being offers in-person and telehealth appointments through MyHealthSpace.
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.
