Updated: 2020-02-13

Dear teachers and students,

In response to the novel coronavirus outbreak, Hainan University suggests that you be engaged in prevention and control efforts as follows:

Improve prevention awareness: take the initiative to learn relevant information and take preventative measures; follow official updates and do not believe in rumors or spread rumors.

Develop good habits: wash hands frequently; exercise regularly to boost your immune system; maintain good air flow in your residence; wear masks when going out; cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue or your flexed elbow; no spitting.

Ensure dietary hygiene: don't touch wild animals without protective measures, and don't eat them; food must be thoroughly cooked before consumption.

Minimize outdoor activities: avoid crowded places, parties, and group activities.

Monitor health conditions: seek medical treatment at designated hospitals' fever clinic if you have suspicious symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, and chest pains; avoid taking public transport to the hospital; observe diagnosis and treatment procedures and follow the instructions of medical staff; tell doctors of travel history.

Keep close contact with the university: report your condition to the school in a timely and honest fashion; follow the university's arrangements related to epidemic prevention and control.
