The 3C Campaign will help prevent the spread of communicable diseases:

  • Clean — wash your hands regularly and avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth
  • Cover — cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the crook of your arm
  • Contain — contain your illness; stay home and rest


 Other steps that will help keep you healthy:

  • Keep up-to-date on vaccinations
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Practice good health habits — get plenty of sleep, stay active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food


When there is an outbreak or the potential for an outbreak of a communicable disease on campus, the University will notify you and provide information on:

  • symptoms
  • steps to take to prevent spreading or acquiring the illness
  • what to do if you suspect you have contracted the illness

Monitor the health alerts page for more information on outbreaks or potential outbreaks.
