Respiratory Illnesses

Protect yourself and others from Flu, COVID-19, and RSV.

Respiratory viruses commonly cause illness such as flu, COVID-19, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), especially in the fall and winter. There are actions you can take to protect yourself and others. Learn about how to reduce your risk of getting sick from these viruses, and if they are spreading in your community.

CDC offers recommendations and updated guidance including information on core prevention steps and strategies, as well as additional considerations for people who are at higher risk of severe illness from respiratory viruses, including older adults, young children, people with compromised immune systems, people with disabilities, and pregnant people.

One way to protect yourself from respiratory illness is through immunizations, which are available through Campus Health.
