Coronavirus Response Information

Updated March 17, 2020

It is essential, now more than ever, that we extend kindness and respect to all members of our College of Education family, regardless of race, ethnicity, or national origin. The strength of our community comes from embracing our diversity and working together to ensure we have a respectful and inclusive environment. This is a time for us to communicate facts and empathy, engaging in care for ourselves and for others. We must all stand together in responding to the threat of the coronavirus.

Precautions to Take

There is no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. CDC recommends everyday actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases: 

  • Stay home when you are ill.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects.
  • 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.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
