WHAT YOU CAN DO?

  • Hygiene – We encourage hand washing with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Additionally, we are providing hand sanitizer throughout our campuses. Due to a shortage of supply and high demand, we ask that you bring your own personal hand sanitizer. When coughing or sneezing cover your mouth using your upper sleeve or with tissue; discard tissue immediately.
  • Resources – We can each do our part in sharing with those in need. Some retailers are experiencing a shortage of basic sanitation items. Please only purchase what is needed in your home and share what you have with others.
