Coronavirus

Updated 4-21-2020
For the past few weeks, MSU leadership has been monitoring the various health aspects of both the normal wave of common cold and flu, as well as meeting regularly regarding the recent coronavirus news. In staying informed about both issues, we have been in regular contact with health care providers, including St. Claire HealthCare, and other health care groups and agencies. 
 
It is important to note that MSU has updated emergency preparedness planning related to the outbreak of respiratory illness caused by the novel coronavirus (n-CoV), also known as COVID-19. We have also been doing extra cleaning of several parts of campus to try to tamp down the common cold, flu and other viruses that are prevalent this time of year. 
 
We remind employees and students regardless of where you are to continue appropriate preventative measures as you would for the cold and flu. These include handwashing with soap and water; disinfecting surfaces including your desk, tables and door handles; covering coughs and sneezes; and avoiding shaking hands. 

If you have specific questions or concerns about COVID-19, use the Kentucky COVID-19 Hotline at 1-800-722-5725 or visit https://govstatus.egov.com/kycovid19.
