What COVID-19 prevention strategies are recommended?

Last Updated March 02, 2022

The prevention strategies are simple:

  • Get vaccinated and stay up-to-date on your COVID-19 vaccines
  • Wear face coverings indoors in public in areas where COVID-19 Community Level is high. Handle your face coverings carefully and wash hands after removing the face covering you just used.
  • Stay 6 feet away from people (physical distancing) even with a mask on.
  • Avoid poorly ventilated spaces and crowds.
  • Test to prevent spread to others.
  • Wash your hands frequently using plenty of soap and water for at least 20 seconds. It is especially important to wash:
    • Before eating or touching your face
    • After using the restroom
    • After leaving a public place
    • After blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing
    • After handling your cloth face covering
    • After changing a diaper
    • After caring for someone sick
    • After touching animals or pets
  • Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or use the inside of your elbow. Do not spit in public.
  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets and sinks.
  • Monitor your health daily and be alert for symptoms.

TCU will provide disinfectant wipes for classrooms and other common spaces. Bring supplies for your private spaces. Most common EPA-registered household disinfectants will work.
