The Mississippi State Department of Health is the agency responsible for conducting contact tracing for confirmed positive cases and will communicate with those who may have been in close contact with these individuals. Mississippi University for Women Health Center will also gather information from those reporting a positive case to inform our own campus members who are considered close contacts of the individual who has tested positive to inform them of the need to self-quarantine.

The health, welfare and safety of our community during this time is our primary concern. In an effort to slow the spread of the virus, we are requesting your immediate attention to and compliance with the following health-authority-recommended practices – not only to ensure your own well-being, but the well-being of others:

  • Engage in social distancing of six or more feet.
  • Wear cloth face coverings on campus unless alone.
  • Stay home when ill or if other family members are ill.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • 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.
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Watch for cough, troubled breathing, or other signs of respiratory infection.
  • Monitor temperature for a fever above 100.4 degrees F (38 degrees C).
