Individuals with a fever greater than 100.4 °F or 38°C or who are unable to contain coughing or sneezing, should refrain from attending classes or work until their symptoms are controlled.
Students’ instructions: You should consult your primary doctor or contact Student Health Services (626-585-7244) if you are unwell.
Do not assume, on the basis of appearance, in the presence of flu-like symptoms that coronavirus is the cause.
Anyone seeking evaluation based on symptoms plus travel/exposure in the last 14 days should make their first contact by phone (Public Health Department, Student Health Services, or Primary Care Provider) to limit the exposure of other people until a decision can be made over the phone about the need and location for testing. If testing is recommended, you should isolate yourself to avoid exposing others. Cover your mouth and nose with a mask, scarf or other fabric if you are told to leave self-isolation for testing.

Patients with confirmed 2019-nCoV infection have reportedly had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of:
- fever (>100.4 °F or 38°C)
- shortness of breath
Many cases appear to be mild. Individuals who are elderly, have weakened immune systems, or have other underlying health conditions appear to be at risk for more severe disease.
Flu and other serious respiratory illnesses are commonly spread by cough, sneezing, or unclean hands.
- Covering your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing prevents the spread of a virus.
- Handwashing (with soap and water) for 20 seconds reduces risk of infection. (https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/videos.html).
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Avoid close contact with someone who is sick.
You can also help your family back home by letting them know you are taking good care of yourself. The best advice for not getting sick is to practice frequent handwashing and staying out of close contact with people who might be sick. Let them know you are well, and it may comfort and reassure them. As opportunities to assist become available, we will share these with the community.
