Healthy Behaviors


Our priority is to protect the well-being of all members of our community and campus visitors. These simple steps will help to keep our community safe and healthy.

Self-Monitor Your Health

Each day you should confirm that you do not have signs/symptoms of COVID-19 before coming to campus. According to the CDC, people with COVID-19 have reported a wide range of symptoms, ranging from mild to severe symptoms, which may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus and include new or worsening:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Muscle pain or body aches
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste or smell (without a stuffy nose)
  • Headache
  • Congestion or runny nose

NOTE: This list does not include all possible symptoms or less common symptoms that have been reported, including gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Consult the CDC website for the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 symptoms.
