Are Masks Required on Campus?
Our current mask policy: if you are fully vaccinated, masks are optional (as of July 12, 2021). However masks are still required in all labs. CDC advises individuals who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing masks
What are the Symptoms
The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.*
- Shortness of breath
If you develop emergency warning signs
for COVID-19 get medical attention immediately. Emergency warning signs include*:
- Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion or inability to arouse
- Bluish lips or face
*This list is not all inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.
How it Spreads
- The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
- Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 3-6 feet).
- Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
- These droplets can land in the mouth or nose of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
How do I Protect myself
Avoid close contact
- The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
- Get vaccinated. There are a number of vaccines available to people over the age of 12 years old to help prevent hospitalization and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
How do I Protect Others
Cover coughs and sneezes
- Get vaccinated. Research has shown that vaccinated people are less likely to transmit the COVID-19 virus.
- Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Learn what to do if you are sick.
Wear a facemask
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
- Throw used tissues in the trash.
- Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Clean and disinfect
- If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room. Learn what to do if you are sick.
- If you are NOT sick:You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.
- Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
- If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
