The University Health Center remains in constant contact with the Baltimore City Health Department and the Maryland Department of Health (MDH), in addition to monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). While the current risk to the campus community is low, it is important to provide updates, new information and access to relevant available resources. Accordingly, we will maintain this page to ensure MSU students, faculty and staff are fully informed and kept abreast of the latest updates.



The CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC's recommendations for using a facemask. CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
