Everyone can do his or her part to help minimize the potential impact of this emerging public health threat. The CDC notes that it is currently flu season, and recommends getting a flu vaccination; taking everyday preventative actions, such as strict handwashing and use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer to help stop the spread of germs; and taking flu antivirals if prescribed. Wearing a mask is not considered necessary.
As always, the University is following the recommendations of the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYCDOHMH), in addition to the CDC.
