Protecting our Knights

The best way to avoid illness is to practice prevention measures.

Get vaccinated

Vaccination against COVID-19 and other preventable diseases can protect you from the risk of severe illness, hospitalization and death.

Cover coughs and sneezes

COVID-19 spreads when an infected person breathes or coughs, expelling respiratory droplets that contain particles of the virus. Other people can breathe or come into contact with these droplets and become infected.

This is why it is important to cover coughs and sneezes that can transmit the virus over long distances. Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, throw used tissues in the trash and use your sleeve or the inside of your elbow when a tissue is not available. This can also protect you from other illnesses such as influenza (flu) and the common cold.

Good Hand Washing

Wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds to help stop the spread of germs. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. Make sure to wash your hands after coughing or sneezing, and before and after visiting sick people.

Clean environment

Clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces, including tables, doorknobs, countertops, handles and phones using a household cleaner that contains soap or detergent.

What You Need to Know

CDC is tracking an outbreak of monkeypox that has spread across several countries that don’t normally report monkeypox, including the United States.

The monkeypox virus is spreading mostly through close, intimate contact with someone who has monkeypox.

You can take steps to prevent getting monkeypox and lower your risk during sex.

CDC recommends vaccination for people who have been exposed to monkeypox and people who are at higher risk of being exposed to monkeypox.

If you have any symptoms of monkeypox, talk to your healthcare provider, even if you don’t think you had contact with someone who has monkeypox.

CDC is urging healthcare providers in the United States to be alert for patients who have rash illnesses consistent with monkeypox.
