COVID-19 & Campus Reopening Information

We are excited to be able to start welcoming students back to campus. The situation is rapidly changing so we will remain flexible while allowing health and safety, the social emotional welfare of students, and the ability to maintain a strong academic program lead our decisions.

Public Health Information

Steps to Prevent Illness

Public health officials recommend that the public do the following to protect themselves and others from respiratory illnesses:

  • Stay home when sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Click here to watch videos from the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) on proper handwashing technique.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unclean hands.
  • Limit close contact, like kissing and sharing cups or utensils, with people who are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).
  • Get a flu immunization to prevent influenza if you have not done so this season.
