Taking Care of Yourself and Our Community

As with any virus, prevention is the key to protect both yourself and others by:

  • Staying at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover
  • Appropriately covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your flexed elbow
  • Cleaning frequently touched surfaces daily or more often
  • Washing your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds or using alcohol-based hand sanitizer - View Our 20-Second Hand Washing Guide

The CDC website provides a wealth of additional information about preventing the spread of COVID-19, including guidelines for home, school and work. The university is also making precautionary plans in the event of a more serious outbreak, and a UF COVID-19 Updates Website has been established to provide regular news and updates
