The full guidelines are available in the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control guides.
Moreover, as participants in the healthcare process it is important that we understand the rights, roles and responsibilities of health workers and key considerations for occupational safety. These rights and responsibilities are included in the World Health Organization's Rights, Roles and Responsibilities of Health Workers. The CDC also has current interim guidance and FAQs for Healthcare Professionals Dealing with COVID-19
Finally, Jersey College has a very diverse community with many international connections. At the present moment, COVID-19 is mostly affecting people in China and South Korea (Level 3) with recent outbreaks in other countries, including Italy, Iran, and Japan (Level 2). Additional countries may be added. The most current warnings and alerts for travel can be found at the CDC's Traveler Information Website.
Jersey College recommends that if you, a family member or a friend must travel to a Level 3 or Level 2 destination (as updated) or are returning from one of these areas that you speak with a healthcare professional both before and after returning. In addition, Jersey College is requesting all members of its community (students, faculty, staff and family and friends of the forgoing) to notify administration at firstname.lastname@example.org of plans to travel to one of the COVID-19 infected areas identified above and of any and all trips to one of these areas by a member of our community. Notifications of travel (either past, present or future) will be held in confidence. The notifications will allow the College to establish precautions, assist with obtaining health advice and promote precautionary best-practices.
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. Many of them infect animals, but some coronaviruses from animals can evolve (change) into a new human coronavirus that can spread from person-to-person. This is what happened with the current novel coronavirus known as COVID-19. Diseases from coronaviruses in people typically cause mild to moderate illness, like the common cold. Some, like the SARS or MERS viruses, cause serious infections like pneumonia. The name of this new virus is SARS-CoV-2; the disease caused by this virus is known as COVID-19.
Information to date suggests this virus is causing symptoms consistent with a respiratory illness such as cough, fever, and shortness of breath. Under current CDC guidance, if a person has traveled from mainland China and develops any of these symptoms within 14 days of their return, they should seek medical care right away. They should first call the doctor’s office or emergency room and tell them about their symptoms and recent travel.
Like other respiratory illnesses, such as influenza, human coronaviruses most commonly spread to others from an infected person who has symptoms through:
It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
There is no specific treatment for COVID-19; however, many of the symptoms can be treated. Treatment is based on the patient’s condition. There is currently no vaccine to prevent novel coronavirus. Education on nonpharmaceutical interventions, including everyday preventive actions, avoiding close contact and surface cleaning measures as outlined below, is recommended.
As with other respiratory illnesses, there are steps that everyone can take daily to reduce the risk of getting sick or infecting others with circulating viruses.
In addition, it is recommended that colleges and universities take these additional measures:
Currently, travelers returning from China are screened at one of 11 airports in the United States where the CDC has quarantine stations. Those with symptoms are referred for medical evaluation. Asymptomatic persons with travel to Hubei Province, China within the past 14 days are subject to mandatory quarantine at sites near the airports where they are screened. Asymptomatic persons with travel to other parts of mainland China (not including Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan) within the past 14 days are allowed to reach their final destination where they are instructed to self-quarantine at home and are monitored by public health authorities.
At this time, the CDC has not recommended additional active monitoring or quarantine for travelers from locations outside of mainland China. As a precaution, people who develop fever and/or lower respiratory symptoms within 14 days of travel from a country where COVID-19 is spreading should call ahead to notify their healthcare provider of their symptoms and recent travel before visiting a healthcare facility.
This is a rapidly evolving situation and our community should refer to the CDC’s website for the most up-to-date travel- related guidance.
Social distancing means remaining out of public places where close contact with others may occur [e.g., dormitories, schools and other classroom settings, cafeterias, shopping centers, movie theaters, stadiums, workplaces (unless the person works in an office space that allows complete distancing from others), and local public conveyances (e.g., bus, subway, taxi, ride share)] for the duration of the potential incubation period.
Each state, as well as the federal government, has information available with regards to COVID-19 (including websites, phone numbers, etc.). Below is information for the States of New Jersey, Florida, New York, and Indiana, and the Federal Government.
