PREVENTIONS & PRECUATIONS

Personal Health

The Health District continues to remind the public to take steps to protect themselves and others, including those most vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19. This includes older adults and people who have chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease.

• Stay home when you are sick.

• Put distance between yourself and others. Keep at least 6 feet between you and other people. Stay home as much as possible. Avoid shaking hands.

• Do not go to the emergency department unless it is essential. Emergency departments need to be able to serve those with the most critical needs.

o If you have a mild cough, fever, or other respiratory symptoms, contact your doctor first.

• Practice everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses:

o Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
o Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
o Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
o Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Stay informed. The COVID-19 situation is changing frequently. Up-to-date information is available on the Health District website at southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/coronavirus or the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.

Campus Environment

Added Cleaning

Facilities staff has increased cleaning frequency and intensity on the most vulnerable spaces and surfaces, including restrooms, conference rooms, and public spaces. Sanitization continues on regular touch points, such as on handrails, building entrances, and elevators. Hand sanitizing dispensers have been installed at entrances of each building and in all highly populated areas. Building ventilation systems have been adjusted to maximize the amount of outside air and continuously “flush” the building’s air.

If there are specific areas that you notice or desire to have cleaned, please call Facilities at (702) 992-2200 or submit requests and questions by e-mail to facilities@nsc.edu.

Shuttle Services

The Campus Commuter and Scorpion Shuttle service have suspended operations until further notice.
