As many of you may be aware, there are concerns about the potential spread of the Coronavirus here in the United States. Husson officials are actively monitoring the situation and will make every effort, working in conjunction with federal, state, and local health authorities, to provide information and implement policies intended to ensure the continued health and safety of our community.

The Maine Center for Disease Control (CDC) is monitoring the status of the coronavirus. While there have been limited incidents here in the United States, there have not been any reports of anyone contracting the virus in Maine. 

Although there are no confirmed cases of the virus in Maine, the Maine CDC and Maine Department of Education are encouraging all schools to review emergency plans and communicate sensible precautions to their communities.

Tips to Prevent the Spread of the Coronavirus and Protect your Health

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap is not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze into a tissue or your sleeve. Be sure to throw tissues in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Stay home when you are sick to prevent others from exposure.
