Keeping the Ram Family safe and informed.

Recognize Heat Stress Signs

As we head into the summer months, please be familiar with the different signs and symptoms of heat stress.


The Daily Wellness Screening is no longer required. Please handle COVID-19 as you would any other illness. If you are feeling sick, please stay home and seek the advice of a medical professional.

Please continue to practice good hygiene while on campus. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. It’s especially important to wash your hands before eating, preparing food or touching your face.

We encourage the Ram Family to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and keep the Ram Fam healthy.

Preventative Actions to Help Stop the Spread of Germs

  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, sleeve, or elbow.
  • Wash your hands often and correctly (with soap and water for 20 seconds).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way and can infect respiratory pathways.
  • Avoid sharing cups, glasses and utensils with other people.
  • Do not come in close contact with other people.
  • Clean contaminated surfaces such as doorknobs and countertops with disinfectants.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Avoid exposure to sick persons, especially those that have cold-like symptoms. Avoid crowds if you are a high-risk individual.
