CDC – Recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory infections including:
- Stay home if you are sick.
- Maintain 6 foot spacing when around people even if they appear healthy.
- Wear a mask when in public.
- 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 sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
- Avoid close contact with sick people.
- Avoid large crowds and gatherings.
- Avoid touching your mouth, nose or eyes.
- Cover your cough or sneeze into a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Use your elbow if a tissue is unavailable.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. (SHS has initiated enhanced cleaning protocols focused on frequently touched surfaces in our medical facilities and waiting areas).
The above precautions are for the safety and well-being for our community. We apologize for any inconvenience and sincerely wish the best health for everyone!
Alternate Health Care Options
The UHS Virtual Walk-In is a convenient alternative to an in-office visit for patients who are in overall good health, without any complicating factors, but who are experiencing a variety of common, minor conditions. All you need is a camera-enabled computer, tablet or smart phone and you can connect face-to-face with a medical provider to discuss minor conditions or medical issues from the comfort of your home. Visit the UHS Virtual Walk-In page for more information!
*** It is important to note that if you use the Virtual Walk without the assistance of the Student Health Services RN, you will be charged for this appointment.***
