Health

The University, including the COVID Response Team and the President, are in regular contact with area medical experts and local health care facilities. The University has in place action plans to provide support for students, faculty and staff if and as needed.

All of the Kettering community is asked to continue to self-monitor for signs of the flu/influenza or COVID-19. We ask any student, faculty, or staff member who meets the CDC criteria for concern (found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/symptoms.html) to self-isolate and avoid contact with others, except to get medical care.

When and If You Are Concerned for Others

For faculty and staff, if you are concerned about someone in the workplace who is ill and exhibiting flu-like symptoms or have concerns about safety in your workplace, please speak with your supervisor. Employees in the workplace who are ill with flu-like symptoms should advise their supervisor, stay home and seek appropriate medical advice.

Keeping Healthy

The best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 and the flu is through prevention:

  •  Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Sneeze and cough into your sleeve or a tissue which you use only once before discarding
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Consider alternatives to shaking hands
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home if you are sick
