EVERYONE SHOULD PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND GOOD HYGIENE

Everyone should practice social distancing and good hygiene. UB is asking members of the campus community to follow these public health recommendations to avoid the spread of respiratory illnesses:

  • Avoid close contact with sick individuals
  • Wash hands frequently
  • Cover your cough
  • Sneeze into a tissue
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others*
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Stay in your apartment or residence hall room when you are sick

For your day-to-day life in the coming weeks or months, this guidance translates to the following points:

  • Do not get together with groups of friends for parties, study sessions or hang outs. Even something simple like sitting on a couch with others to watch a movie goes against CDC recommendations.
  • Strictly minimize the network of people you maintain in-person contact with.
  • Limit shopping trips to those needed for essential supplies.
  • Avoid any unnecessary travel.
  • Continue to follow tips for frequent and thorough handwashing and sanitation of regularly touched surfaces.
  • Stay home if you are sick. Learn the CDC recommendations for what to do if you are sick.
