  • Follow the norms of social distancing

The concept of social distancing only works if you happen to stay far enough to avoid the droplets when people speak, sneeze, or cough. Being in college is a problem because part of the fun in college is about meeting new people. You meet individuals and become acquainted with them.  This conversation now must happen while maintaining a distance of six feet.

You might feel weird at first, but you will not find it strange if everyone around you is doing the same and are following the same protocols. 


  • Stop touching your face

Health experts suggest that you do not touch your face frequently or at all in the pandemic, but why is that so? The reason behind the same is that the coronavirus is known to spread and transmit through the mucous membrane in your mouth, nose, and eyes. If you happen to touch your face after touching the contaminated surface, the droplets of the virus can enter your body in no time. Thus, if you do not touch your face and make it a habit to wash your hands frequently you can avoid the transmission of the virus to your body through contaminated surfaces. 

  • Wash your hands frequently

There are never enough reminders for washing your hands. So, here is another reminder that you should wash your hands frequently. The best way to protect or keep yourself safe from coronavirus is that you wash your hands more frequently than ever before. This helps to prevent the droplets from a sick person or a contaminated surface from entering your body. Make sure that you wash your hands when you sneeze, touch a doorknob, or use a bathroom. Do the same after you touch any of the surfaces that could be contaminated. 

  • Learn how to sneeze with etiquette

Are you still sneezing into your hands? Gross! That has to stop in this era of COVID-19 and probably forever. The centers of disease control and prevention suggest that you should always sneeze into your elbow or tissue. Otherwise, you will be spreading the airborne particles that can move 100 miles per hour and can travel a distance of 26 feet. By sneezing with etiquette you will be helping in cutting down on the airborne transmission of the virus and also you will be able to set an example for the people in front of you. 

  • If you feel sick, make sure that you do not leave your dorm

After following all the precautions there are still chances that you still might get infected with the COVID-19 virus or you might catch the flu. In either of these cases, make sure that you do not show up in the classroom when you are feeling sick. It is not worth spreading the flu to anyone else. You can do the least by telling your teachers that you will be staying back in order to monitor and analyze your symptoms. If things happen to get worse you can get tested and look for the best options for yourself. 


These protocols are the basic norms that you can follow in order to stop the virus from spreading among others in the college. Covid-19 is scary, deadly, and contagious and we need to be careful. If everyone happens to follow the guidelines, there are chances that we could possibly stop the spread of the infection on the college campus.
