What are the signs and symptoms of Coronavirus?

The symptoms of COVID-19 include a combination of, fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle pain and body aches, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain or a fever above 100.4.

Coronavirus Prevention

The following health habits go a long way toward helping prevent the spread of Coronavirus

Clean Your Hands with Soap and Water

Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. When washing, think about the song “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” to know how long to wash. Turn off the faucet with a paper towel, open the door with the paper towel, and then dispose of the paper towel so you are not touching contaminated surfaces.

Use a Gel Hand Sanitizer and/or Antimicrobial Wipes

You can use a gel hand sanitizer to cleanse your hands when there is no visible dirt. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth. The gel hand sanitizer can help eliminate the germs.

Practice Good Respiratory Etiquette

Wear a face mask when on campus or around groups of people. Cough or sneeze into your sleeve. Make sure others around you use tissues properly and dispose of them in the trash can. After coughing or sneezing, always wash your hands with soap and water or clean them with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Avoid Close Contact

Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick, too. Use Lysol, Clorox or any other type of disinfectant to sterilize your room/work area.

Next Steps after Displaying Symptoms

  1. Return to your room or home immediately with minimal contact with others.
  2. Call the SLV Health Respiratory Clinic 719-589-2511 extension 9
  3. Comply with medical instructions/advice you were given
  4. Monitor your symptoms at home for the next 48 hours. If you have a fever at or above 100.4° and/or are experiencing a combination of the below symptoms (where symptoms are not common relating to an underlying condition), stay home.
  5. Notify your professors/coach via email you will be unable to attend classes.
  6. If you live on camps, contact the Housing office at housing@adams.edu or 719-587-7227 to notify them of your condition.
