The health and safety of the New Mexico Tech community is a top priority for our administration. We are closely monitoring developments involving the Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) through the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). New Mexico Tech will continue to actively monitor the situation via the NMDOH and the CDC, and we will follow their recommendations as they respond to any new developments.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, 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.
- Wash your hands as thoroughly and frequently as possible for a minimum of 30 seconds.
