Help Prevent the Spread of Illness
CALS is dedicated to the health and safety of our faculty, staff, and students.
Below are some recommended ways to limit your exposure and the spread of disease:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- 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
COVID-19: According to the CDC, please stay home and contact CALS staff if you…
- Have traveled to China, South Korea, Italy, Japan, or Iran in the last 14 days
- Had close contact with someone who has traveled to China, South Korea, Italy, Japan, or Iran in the last 14 days
- Suspect you have the flu or flu-like symptoms
- Have a fever of 100 °F or higher before taking medication
- Had a fever of 100 °F or higher before taking medication in the last 24 hours
CALS reserves the right to ask students to leave campus if they are exhibiting signs of illness and are unable to provide documentation from a health care provider indicating that their symptoms are benign. In such cases, reasonable accommodations will be established for the continuation of study without punitive consequences. This measure is meant to protect the health, safety, and peace of mind of all faculty, staff, and students.
