Our students are depending on us to make sure they are safe and to pass along the proper information about the disease and how best to prevent it from spreading. There are some simple, everyday, low-tech steps you can take to reduce your chances of exposure and to protect others—and fortunately, they’re the same things you do to prevent flu, the common cold and other respiratory illnesses:
* Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
* Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
* Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue (or sleeve) and then throw the tissue in the trash.
* Clean and disinfect surfaces that are often touched
* Stay home if you’re sick.
* Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
* Take care of your health overall. Staying current on your vaccinations, including flu vaccine, eating well and exercising all help your body stay resilient
