Follow these basic tips to stay healthy and prevent the spread of colds and flu:

  • Wash your hands with warm, soapy water for 20-30 seconds.  Alcohol based hand cleaners are also effective, unless your hands are visibly soiled or completely contaminated.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.  Germs spread this way.
  • Perform routine cleaning in your living or office space. The flu virus can survive on surfaces and can infect a person for 2-8 hours after being deposited on the surface.  Clean items and surfaces likely to have frequent hand contact.

In addition, sanitizing wipes have been provided for use on the keyboards and mice in all PSU public computer clusters, to help prevent the spread of illness.

Further information especially for students, including information on self-care, can be found on the PSU Health Services web site at: 

Stay Healthy Plymouth!
