The threat of an outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, commonly referred to as the Coronavirus, is real. Given the rapid spread of the illness in other parts of the world, we must remain alert to this ever-changing situation.
As of March 1, there are no confirmed cases in Saint Paul, or anywhere else in Minnesota.
As with other infectious diseases, there are steps everyone can take now to prevent becoming ill:
Practice good hand hygiene
Cover your cough
Stay home if you're sick
We are using the knowledge we've gained from years of experience dealing with the flu to bolster our efforts to prevent and plan for the COVID-19 virus. The Student Health and Wellness Department will continue to keep staff and families updated as needed.
