UB is carefully monitoring coronavirus situation

Release Date: January 24, 2020

The University at Buffalo is monitoring the coronavirus (2019-nCov) situation carefully and is taking proactive and prudent measures to ensure the health and safety of the UB community in accordance with the guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

At this time, the university is not aware of any students, faculty or staff who may have been exposed to the coronavirus.

It is important for the university community to know that while the CDC considers this to be a serious public health concern, based on current information, the immediate health risk to the general American public is considered low at this time.

The campus community is reminded that this is also cold and flu season, so it is best to practice healthy habits including frequent hand washing, covering your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, avoiding contact with sick people and getting a flu vaccination.
