How it Spreads Virus’ that are Airborne spread mostly through contact from an infected individual and transmitted by coughing and sneezing. Common symptoms include fever, coughing, shortness of breath, and lower and upper respiratory issues. It is more likely to occur in the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. Travel Precautions Be sure to request all faculty, employees and students who return from travel to China, Iran, Italy, Japan and South Korea to self-quarantine and not return to campus for fourteen days after their return. Consistent with this guidance, we recommend canceling all university sponsored travel to these countries. What to Do If there is an individual with a suspected case of COVID-19, there are protocols in place with ALL Florida health care providers and practitioners:
Immediately contact your health care practitioner or any local hospital. ANY local hospital is equipped to handle COVID-19.
Individuals will be evaluated at any local hospital, and tests will be sent to the CDC for evaluation.
The goal is containment to stop any transmission.
If you are sick, stay home.
Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
Carry and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Call ahead before visiting your doctor.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
Monitor your symptoms.
