How to protect yourself

The Middlesex-London Health Unit recommends the following to stay healthy and to prevent the spread of viruses:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands with soap and warm water often, 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.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with your sleeve; or cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the garbage.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect high-touch objects and surfaces frequently.

We are committed to making our campus a safe and enjoyable place for all.
