In response to the emerging outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Philander Smith College, is taking proactive steps to ensure the health and safety of our campus community.

We urge all to diligently follow healthy practices recommended by health experts. The CDC recommends the following actions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Avoid contact with sick people.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Clean your hands often by washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.

  • Stay home if you are sick

  • Cover coughs and sneezes

  • Wear a face mask if you are sick

Philander Smith College administrators are continuing to monitor the situation and provide updates to this site as needed. Additionally, please visit The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Arkansas Department of Health websites, as they update their sites frequently with up-to-the-minute information.
