Health officials worldwide are monitoring a respiratory illness outbreak caused by a new coronavirus, named “COVID-19,” that originated in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. DSU continues to monitor updates on the spread of 2019 novel coronavirus from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and we are using their guidance and recommendations here on our own campus.

According to the CDC, symptoms of the virus include:
• runny nose
• headache
• cough
• sore throat
• fever
• a general feeling of being unwell

The CDC believes that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure. The illness can be more serious for individuals with a weakened immune system, the elderly, or those with underlying respiratory problems. It could result in bronchitis and pneumonia.

What to Do if You Are Sick

Anyone who has returned from an affected region within the past 14 days and is sick with fever and a cough, or difficulty breathing, should seek medical care immediately and call ahead to the doctor’s office to inform them of recent travel and symptoms.

Students with symptoms should call DSU Student Health Services at 701-483-2304.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to contact their primary healthcare provider.
