GENERAL INFECTION PREVENTION MEASURES
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed and to implement practices that reduce its spread. This can best be accomplished by:
MATC promotes frequent and thorough hand washing by providing a place for employees and students to wash their hands and/or alcohol‐based sanitizing products with at least 60% alcohol, located in numerous prominent locations throughout campus. Employees and students are encouraged to wash hands e.g., before/after eating, after meeting with team members in offices, after handling materials provided by vendors, and after using the restroom. Hand sanitizing stations are distributed throughout campus, and bathrooms are stocked with appropriate soap and signage for good hygiene.
STAYING HOME WHEN SICK
As stated in communications throughout this pandemic, the college encourages students and employees to stay home if they are sick.
PRACTICE RESPIRATORY AND COUGH ETIQUETTE
Employees, students, and visitors should cover their mouth and nose with their sleeve or a tissue when coughing or sneezing and avoid touching their face, in particular their mouth, nose, and eyes, with their hands. They should dispose of tissues in the trash and wash or sanitize their hands immediately afterward.
