The College is following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Those recommendations include suggested steps for people who have traveled recently. Though we’re not aware that anyone in the TSTC family has traveled to impacted locations, if you have traveled to locations considered CDC Level 2 and 3 travel advisory locations for coronavirus we recommend that you self-isolate for 14 days before returning to campus.
The best action you can take at this time is to follow the recommendations of public health officials and wash your hands regularly, avoid close contact with people who are sick and take other preventative measures.
