Marquette community reminded to take precautions to prevent spread of COVID-19

All faculty, staff and students are reminded to continue social distancing to slow the spread of coronavirus. Do this by maintaining at least six feet between you and other people.

Additionally, remember to:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water.
    • The CDC recommends washing hands for at least 20 seconds.
  • Cover nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze.
  • Avoid close contact with ill individuals.
  • Stay home if you are ill.
  • Wear a mask while in public
    • The CDC recommends everyone wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. Wearing a mask helps to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure. Note that the cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance. Learn more on the CDC website.
