Ursuline College staff members are meeting each day to manage the directives from the governor, but most especially to make decisions that will keep students healthy and safe.
Students: a large part of keeping yourself healthy is YOU! Be sure to follow the guidelines for proper handwashing, get plenty of rest, eat well-balanced and healthy meals, don’t touch your eyes and face, sneeze into a clean tissue, and cover that cough with your arm or elbow.
