Risk Assessment on COVID-19

On March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that the current COVID-19 outbreak has met all the requirements of a pandemic. Numerous cases of COVID-19 have been positively identified in the United States, including Pennsylvania.  

Misericordia reminds all of our University community members to continue to follow standard wellness practices, such as:

  • frequent hand-washing,
  • covering your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing,
  • Avoiding sharing cups, utensils, water bottles and other personal items and
  • Staying home when sick and avoiding others who are sick.
