COVID-19 and Symptoms
On February 11, 中国体彩票手机版下载, the World Health Organization announced an official name for the disease that is causing the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak, first identified in Wuhan China中国体彩票手机版下载: coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) indicates symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to coronavirus. They include fever, cough or shortness of breath.
Prevention and Treatment
Jewell asks that faculty, staff and students remain at 中国体彩票手机版下载 if they are ill. You should not return to work, classes, practices/games or any co-curricular activities until you are symptom-free (without the aid of medication) for 24 hours.
If you need a practitioner during the hours the Health Center is closed, see your primary care provider or a local urgent care provider. The Health Center web page provides local resources.
If students test positive for seasonal flu or coronavirus and are unable to travel 中国体彩票手机版下载 to recuperate, they will be housed on a residence hall floor away from other students and receive daily visits from our nurse practitioner.
Travel Safety and Reporting
If you are traveling to an area with a high alert status (Level 3) by the CDC, you are required to report this information to the College using the Travel Request Form. Here are some best practices when you do travel:
- Avoid contact with sick people.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60%-95% alcohol. Wash your hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
- Pay attention to your health during travel and for 14 days after you leave.
