Student health and Spring Break

Mar. 9, 2020

This message was sent to all students at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Dear University of Nevada, Reno students,

As you prepare to enjoy spring break we wanted to share information important to your health and safety. Your plans may include travel abroad. Per the Centers for Disease Control and Washoe County Health Department, if you choose to travel to any of the CDC 2-3 level countries (currently China, Iran, South Korea, Italy and Japan) you are required to self-quarantine for 14 days immediately upon your return. Self-quarantine means staying at home, not going out in public except for pre-arranged medical care, and being separated from others who have not been exposed in order to prevent the possible spread of the disease. At the start of your self-quarantine period please contact the student health center by phone at 775-784-6598. Please visit the CDC website to follow developments with regard to travel and to learn about practices for staying healthy. Stay up-to-date on the corona virus and our campus. Be aware that the list of countries and areas for which 14 day self-quarantine is required may change; you should monitor the CDC travel restrictions/guidelines.

If you know someone who is in self-quarantine, please consider supporting them through emails and texts, but respect the quarantine; do not visit them in person. We want every member of our campus community to enjoy their break and return healthy to complete the spring semester.

Vice President, Student Services
