What to do if you think you’ve been exposed to COVID-19

Some good information. Students - don't forget to call the Hamre Center. Testing offered daily.

What do you do if you think you might have been exposed to someone with the coronavirus? And how do you know if you might have been exposed? And this week, if you attended any of the Trump campaign’s Minnesota events, you might be wondering whether it’s time to quarantine or get tested.

Hey. Don't be a "maskhole"!
FYI - MN now has a face covering requirement starting 7/25/20. Shouldn't be a problem for you because you've been wearing yours, right?! If you are planning to come to campus and don't have a face covering, Macalester will provide you with one.

“Maskhole,” “body Zoom-morphia,” and more neologisms for coronavirus communication.

How to Sew a Face Mask

Current advice is still that masks are not needed unless you are sick or taking care of someone who is ill. That being said, the CDC is taking a look at that advice due to the fact that some people with the coronavirus don't have symptoms. However you land on the "mask/don't mask" debate, here is a pattern you can use if you want to make your own. Save the medical-grade masks for medical providers! Also, some healthcare systems are taking homemade mask donations. Check in your community for possible donation sites.

Bonus: sewing and creating things can be a good stress-buster!

A tutorial on how to make your own fabric face mask from common household materials.

Just remember - unless you are ill and need to leave your home to seek healthcare OR you are providing direct care to someone who is ill, at this time the CDC is not recommending people wear a mask. Please, save them for our healthcare providers and first responders.

I asked eight chatbots if I had Covid-19. The answers varied widely - STAT

There are a variety of web tools that are trying to help people discern if they should seek medical care for possible COVID-19 infection or isolate. At the end of the day, checking in with your provider is probably the best option.

P.S. - the Hamre Center is still accepting appointments (students only) for medical and counseling (Counseling - telehealth; Medical - in-person and telehealth 651-696-6275). P.P.S. - if you are sick, start with staying home!!

STAT tested eight coronavirus chatbots. The answers we got about the risk of Covid-19 were conflicting and sometimes confusing.
