The health and well-being of Carroll University’s faculty, staff and students is our top priority. That is why we want to provide our community with information that can keep them healthy and informed about the coronavirus (COVID-19).
According to the Wisconsin Health Department, the immediate risk to Wisconsin, and the U.S. as a whole, remains low. However, as a reminder, the Centers for Disease Control recommends these preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases:
- 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 available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- 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.
With spring break approaching, if you are planning to travel, please review CDC travel guidelines, and visit our page for more info about how to stay safe and well.
