Prevent Getting Sick or Spreading Illness

  1. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially prior to eating. Hand sanitizer should be used if soap and water are not readily available
  2. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands – including your eyes, nose, and mouth
  3. Avoid close contact with people and do not shake hands
  4. Cover all coughs and sneezes, preferably with a tissue that can be discarded in a closed container after use. In absence of a tissue, use your sleeve or elbow
  5. Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects including buttons, door handles, counters, workstations, keyboards, etc.

Wearing a Mask

Masks are not required at Adelphi, however, we strongly encourage you to continue wearing a mask when in crowded environments, especially indoors — whether you are on or off campus.Adelphi student wearing a mask with the Adelphi logo on the front

As they evolve, we will continue to follow the CDC recommendations for wearing masks.

Please continue carrying an acceptable face covering with you — in case you are asked to wear one. We appreciate your support of individual choice and comfort regarding the use of masks.
