Practice self-care. Reach out for support.

Wildcats Care: What to Know

  • COVID-19 has become a source of stress for most people and for many reasons. It is common to feel increased fear, worry and anxiety; to experience difficulty concentrating or changes in sleep or eating patterns; or to experience a worsening of physical or mental health symptoms.
  • Your mental and emotional health and your physical health are linked. It is just as important to take care of your emotional well-being as it is your physical well-being.

What to Do

  • Focus on the basics:
    • Sleep at least 7 hours per night.
    • Move your body for at least 150 minutes per week.
    • Eat well by emphasizing whole foods (fruits, veggies, whole grains, etc.) and hydrate.
    • Get outside in nature for at least 120 minutes per week (less than 20 minutes per day).
  • Be kind to yourself. Practice self-compassion. It’s okay (and important!) to take breaks.
  • Practice physical distancing, but stay socially connected. Maintain positive social connections that make you feel good.
  • Seek out information from reliable sources. Take social media breaks.
  • You are not alone. Reach out for support if you are having trouble caring for yourself.
  • Find brief descriptions of on-campus and Student Life services, as well as 24-hour and emergency resources on the Wildcats Care Resource List.

Soap. Water. Scrub for at least 20 seconds.

What to Know

  • Hand washing is one of the most effective ways to protect yourself and others around you from getting sick.
  • Germs from unwashed hands can spread when you touch your eyes, nose, and mouth; prepare or eat food/drinks; touch contaminated surfaces; or blow your nose, cough, or sneeze and then touch other people’s hands or surfaces.

What to Do

  • Wash your hands often:
    • After you’ve been in a public space
    • Before touching your eyes, nose, or mouth
    • Before, during, and after preparing food
    • Before eating food
    • Before and after caring for someone who is sick

Keep it clean. Cover your coughs. Stay home when sick.

What to Know

  • Cleaning with soap and water reduces number of germs and dirt on surfaces, while disinfecting kills germs on surfaces.
  • COVID-19 is typically spread from person-to-person, between people who are close to each other. When an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, etc. they can produce respiratory droplets that land in the mouths/noses of people nearby.

What to Do

  • Routinely clean and disinfect common areas and surfaces.
    • Wear reusable or disposable gloves.
    • Use soap and water, then a standard home disinfectant according to the directions on the bottle.
    • Use alcohol-based wipes or sprays for electronics and follow manufacturer’s instruction for cleaning/disinfecting.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Communicate with your professor or supervisor to make up for missed work.
    • You should not be penalized for keeping others safe by staying home. Students can contact the Dean of Students Office (603-862-2053) and employees can contact their Human Resources representative if they are experiencing issues.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes using the inside of your elbow or a tissue.
    • Throw used tissues in the trash and immediately wash your hands or use sanitizer.
  • Don’t risk getting the seasonal flu – get your flu vaccine!
    • October 2020 flu clinic information can be found at our Flu Prevention page.
    • If you can't make it to a flu clinic, you can get a flu vaccine by appointment at Health & Wellness.
  • If you need to leave campus, please be aware of campus and state requirements:
