Protective Measures

The spread of the coronavirus is a fluid situation worldwide and continues to unfold. It is vitally important that all members of the Oswego campus community continue to take precautions and exercise good preventative health practices, especially as you consider making plans to travel during spring break. CDC recommends everyday preventitive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, inlcuding:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands)
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. 

Student Emergency Fund

Over the past several weeks, we have been fielding questions about how alumni and friends can support students who are facing unanticipated and unprecedented hardships. Gifts to the Student Emergency Fund will meet immediate student needs, such as expenses for traveling home, food, and health care. Any support you are inclined to provide will be deeply appreciated—by us, and most importantly, by our students helped by your generosity. Visit the Student Emergency Fund webpage for more information ... and remember #TogetherOz.
