Coronavirus Update (Jan. 28, 2020)

The U.S. State Department has issued a Level 3 travel advisory, “reconsider travel,” for the country of China, and a Level 4 travel advisory, “do not travel,” for Hubei province.

Individuals are encouraged to continue to take steps that help prevent any respiratory infection—whether it’s the flu or a common cold. These steps include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

  • 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
