I have symptoms/I was exposed to someone with COVID-19. What should I do?2020-09-02T21:32:26+00:00

First thing to do is immediately quarantine yourself. Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms. People in quarantine should stay home and separate themselves from others. Quarantine usually lasts at least 14 days from your last contact with a person who has COVID-19, even if you test negative for COVID-19 during quarantine. You should not leave quarantine until you have been released from quarantine by your healthcare provider.

After quarantining yourself, you should contact a healthcare provider for further advice:

On-campus/local students: please contact Student Health Services (SHS) at 909-621-8222 (x18222). Our healthcare professionals will help you determine the next steps in your evaluation and treatment. Outside of SHS business hours, please use the Telehealth Service for a virtual visit or contact Campus Security at 909-607-2000 (x72000) for assistance. We will also help you get connected with the appropriate resources to coordinate academic and residential life.

Off-campus students: Please use the Telehealth service for a virtual visit or contact your local primary care physician for further guidance. Secondly, please contact your Dean of Students so they can provide the appropriate academic resources for you.

Faculty/staff: Please contact your primary care physician for further guidance. Also, inform your supervisor or human resources (HR) department so they can discuss appropriate resources available to you.

How can I reduce my risk of exposure to COVID-19?2020-09-02T21:31:39+00:00

Handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

COVID-19 can be spread by people who do not have symptoms and do not know that they are infected. That’s why it’s important for everyone to practice social distancing (staying at least 6 feet away from other people) and wear cloth face coverings in public settings. Cloth face coverings provide an extra layer to help prevent the respiratory droplets from traveling in the air and onto other people.
