Additional Information

Deep Cleaning Our Campus

An important part of keeping our campus safe involves frequent deep cleaning and disinfecting of the campus by our Department of Buildings and Grounds. They are working tirelessly to make sure “touch points” (door knobs, faucets, hand rails, etc.) and heavily used surfaces are kept clean for our safety.

As stated by the Centers for Disease Control, the best protection against COVID-19 starts with each of us. Simple actions such as washing your hands, avoiding sick individuals and staying home when you are sick are best practices for combatting this illness.

Simple Steps to Stay Healthy

Simple hygiene and healthcare practices can greatly reduce the likelihood of catching and spreading colds and other viruses.  You can take care of yourself by following these simple steps:

  • Wash hands frequently.  Use hand sanitizers when soap and water is unavailable.

  • Cover mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing with tissues and dispose of immediately.  If tissues are unavailable cough into your elbow.

  • Try not to touch eyes, nose or mouth.

  • Avoid contact with people who are ill.

  • Follow healthy practices of good diet, sleep and exercise.
