Keep Our Campus Healthy

The best way to prevent the spread of any type of infection is to practice routine hygiene etiquette:

  • Wash your hands often and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water. Use alcohol hand rub as a backup.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow or a tissue when you sneeze or cough. Throw away your tissue after one use.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you are ill, stay home. Keep a safe six-foot distance from others to prevent disease spread.
  • If you are seriously ill, seek medical advice.
  • Complete and stay up to date on your Ohio State vaccination requirements.
