Stop the Spread.

Wear a Mask.

Dear Tritons,

When UC San Diego scientists put their heads together to analyze the transmission pathways of COVID-19, they confirmed that proper use of face coverings significantly reduces the number and severity of COVID-19 infections.

Cover your face.

Cloth face coverings may prevent the person wearing the mask from spreading respiratory droplets when talking, sneezing, or coughing. Face coverings should cover the mouth and nose completely. If everyone wears a cloth face covering when out in public, the risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 can be reduced for the community. Since people may spread the virus before symptoms start, or even if people never have symptoms, wearing a cloth face covering may protect others around you.

Wash your hands.

Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

Symptoms? Get tested.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, including fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath/ difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle/body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea we encourage you to get tested. Please call Student Health Services at 858-534-3300 to discuss any concerns and set up an appointment for testing. 

Student Health Services remains open and offers COVID-19 testing for individuals who have developed symptoms or have a known exposure to the virus.

Keep your (6 feet) distance.

In addition to everyday steps to prevent COVID-19, keeping six feet of space between you and others is one of the best tools we have to prevent exposure and slow the spread.

Thank you, and stay well.
