Prevention: Physical Distancing and PPE

Guidance to help prevent disease spread

Keep up the habits that help prevent COVID-19 infection:

  • Maintain social distancing—putting 6 feet of space between you and others in your daily interactions.
  • Clean hands frequently with soap and water (wash for at least 20 seconds) or alcohol-based sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Wear a face mask. See FAQs about where masks need to be worn.
  • Stay hydrated and get plenty of rest.
  • As required, complete the Dr. Chat Bot symptom screening tool every day prior to arriving on campus. For the health of all University community members, everyone must act responsibly and honestly when filling out Dr. Chat Bot.
  • Commit to following health and safety guidelines.
