The health and wellness of our campus community is our top priority. Spalding will continue to abide by federal, state and local guidelines. Any of the university’s policies are subject to change based on the state of the pandemic.
Here are some of the key measures we can all take to prevent the spread.
Keep a check on your health.
Watch for symptoms.
Every person in our learning community is asked to keep a check on their health. If you experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you follow the university’s latest protocols.
Wash your hands often.
Frequently washing your hands protects you and others by helping to prevent the spread of germs and viruses.
- Wash before and after visiting public places, eating, using the restroom, sneezing, coughing, blowing your nose, etc.
- Wash with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- If soap and water is not available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
Hand sanitizer dispensers installed across campus will remain in place. Regardless of your vaccination status, please continue to use them regularly as well as practicing frequent, thorough hand-washing throughout the day.
Please get vaccinated!
At this time, COVID-19 vaccines are not mandated for any member of the Spalding community, but they are strongly encouraged. The university is reviewing whether or not to require vaccines and will notify the campus community if a change in policy takes place.
- If a student has any questions about the safety or efficacy of vaccines or is unsure where to get a shot, please contact the Eagle Care Health Clinic at email@example.com.
- Information on vaccine sites near your area can be found at vaccines.gov.
