How can I help to prevent the spread of COVID-19?

August 7, 2020 (updated May 31, 2022)

  • Keep a safe distance (at least 6 feet apart) from others.
  • Avoid touching your mouth and eyes.
  • Wash your hands often, using soap and water and washing for at least 20 seconds.
  • Wear a face covering — see UMB’s Updated Face Covering Policy for information on when face coverings are required on campus.
  • Always cover your cough using your shirt or elbow, not your hand.
  • Stay home when you are feeling sick.
  • Monitor yourself for symptoms and refer to UMB's COVID-19 Isolation/Quarantine Protocols if you're showing symptoms compatible with COVID-19.
  • Get vaccinated.
