HSC’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) response
A task force of HSC leaders, led by David Mansdoerfer, Special Assistant to HSC President Michael Williams and former Deputy Assistant Secretary for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is closely monitoring the COVID-19 (new coronavirus) situation and HSC’s response.
HSC Campus Reopening Plan
HSC will begin a reopening of campus on June 8 for supervisors and June 15 for additional team members as approved by their supervisor.
The institution’s priorities during this transition are to protect the health of employees, students and the community; and to carefully and deliberately mitigate negative health and safety impacts. The reopening plan will remain flexible and will be continually evaluated in order to remain in accordance with guidance and data from federal, state and local governments, and university health professionals. Please review the HSC reopening plan and Frequently Asked Questions.
If employees, students or HSC partners develop a fever, cough or shortness of breath, they should:
- Call their health care provider before going to the clinic so the provider can take precautions to protect others in the clinic.
- Follow the health care provider’s advice. Stay away from school and work until at least 24 hours after being fever free without the use of acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil).
- If they must go out, wear a mask and avoid close contact with others, especially around infants and children, those over age 65 and those who have a compromised immune system.
