University System of Georgia Schools Fight COVID-19 Transcript

The University System of Georgia is working hard to help fight the coronavirus.

Our institutions are making masks, sending supplies to hospitals, and using our labs to ramp up testing.

Here's how you can do your part too.

Know how the virus spreads.

People may be infectious even when they don't show any symptoms.

Avoid close contact.

Put distance between yourself and other people. Six feet or more.

Do not gather in large groups.

For their own safety, avoid people at high risk of getting very sick, such as the elderly.

Clean your hands often. Wash with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

When you are around others in public, cover your mouth and nose with a cloth or mask.

Remember you could spread COVID-19 even if you do not feel sick.

If you can, please prioritize medical face masks for health care workers who need them most.

Cover coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue or the inside of your elbow.

Immediately wash your hands or use sanitizer.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.

And remember to take care of you.

Exercise while practicing safe distancing.

Eat healthy, and don't be afraid to ask for help.

You are not alone in this fight.

We're Stallions, Eagles, Roadrunners, and Nighthawks. We are Mariners. We have Wildcat spirit, so hunker down.

Together we swarm as one University System of Georgia.

Stop COVID-19. Let's take tomorrow by storm.
