Coronavirus Information Center

East Mississippi Community College continues to actively monitor the spread of the novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). We remain in close contact with the Mississippi Department of Health and other health officials. We are following the latest information, trends and guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as alerts and recommendations made by the Department of State. As the situation evolves, we are committed to taking all necessary precautions to keep our students, faculty, staff, and the community as safe as possible. The college is in the process of refining its epidemic plan and developing contingency plans that can be called into place if needed. Additional updates on these plans will be posted as needed.

What to do...

IF YOU ARE SICK -
If you develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or shortness of breath, within 14 days after travel from any affected country or area with active outbreak, you should contact your primary healthcare provider immediately.  If you have had close contact with someone showing these symptoms who has recently traveled from any affected country or area with active community transmission, you should call your primary healthcare provider and mention your close contact and their recent travel. At this time, your healthcare provider will work with the Mississippi State Department of Health and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19. The CDC has released the following guidance if you suspect you are ill: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/steps-when-sick.html
