COVID-19 Prevention, Symptoms & Testing

How can I protect myself and others?

First, you can protect yourself and others by following Nyack College guidance and not returning to campus. Returning home, or staying away from campus, is a responsible method for decreasing density, an important strategy for reducing the spread of COVID-19. In addition, please follow current recommendations: including

  1. Washing your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
  2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  3. Cough and sneeze into a tissue or your sleeve.
  4. Avoid close contact with those who are sick; staying home when you are sick.
  5. Take steps to lower your risk at meetings, gatherings and events, including holding video or teleconference meetings, modifying in-person interactions, and maintaining a 6-foot distance.

What is “social distancing” and how do I do that?

Social distancing is a way to reduce exposure, slow the spread, and minimize transmission of contagious diseases. Try to maintain a distance of at least   6-feet between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. Avoid shaking hands and close physical contact with anyone displaying symptoms of illness.
