Hygiene Habits

All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to continue practicing good hygiene including:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Maintain a distance of at least 3-to-6-feet between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • If you have a fever, cough, and breathing difficulties, stay home and seek medical attention early by calling your medical provider.

Hygiene and Travel

While avoiding travel right now is ideal, please observe the following habits if you must travel.

The World Health Organization recommends several basic protective measures against the new coronavirus including:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Maintain a 3-foot distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • If you have a fever, cough, and breathing difficulties, stay home and seek medical attention early by calling your medical provider.

Recent news articles also have outlined tips on staying healthy while flying. These include:

  • Wash your hands and avoid touching your face.
  • Choose a window seat if you can. An Emory University study found that passengers in window seats had less contact with potentially sick people than passengers in other seats. Additionally, try not to move around the plane.
  • Clean hard services such as your arm rest, seatbelt buckle, remote, screen and tray with disinfectant wipes. Wipes are not recommended on cloth seats, but leather or nonporous seats can be wiped down.

Keep these tips in mind for travel during Spring Break, as well as in your normal routine. The university will continue monitoring developments with the new coronavirus and we will provide additional updates as changes occur.
