Staying Safe and Healthy

The WellCat Health Center urges everyone to comply with California’s evolving Stay At Home Order and follow best practices for reducing the spread of COVID-19, including washing hands, physical distancing, staying home when sick, and wearing face coverings when physical distancing isn’t possible. Employees who are asked to perform on-campus essential services must follow best practices for social distancing in the workplace.

If You Feel Sick

Anyone experiencing any coronavirus symptoms, even mild symptoms, should self-isolate until their symptoms go away and/or call the WellCat Health Center’s COVID-19 hotline or their health-care providers to get guidance. It is important to call before seeking treatment to make sure you can get the care you need without putting others at risk.
