Wear a Mask

Cloth masks like the ones issued to each member of the De Paul community are useful in drastically limiting the wearer’s potential to spread infection. From the early days of COVID-19 study, it was clear the illness is often spread via asymptomatic carriers.

Physical Distancing

Studies indicate that a significant portion of COVID-19 transmission is done by asymptomatic or presymptomatic individuals—those who don't know they are sick. That's why one of the first tools to employ in the fight against COVID-19 is physical distancing.

Hand Hygiene

Hand Hygiene is very much part of the precaution procedure during the pandemic.Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.Use the hand sanitation.

Daily Health Check

The daily health check is a critically important tool in our efforts to keep members of De Paul community safe and healthy. Each of us – students, faculty and staff – is required to complete a daily temperature check at the entrance of the Main Gate. Temperature screenings

Have You been Vaccinated?

Get Vaccinated

The world is in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic. As WHO and partners work together on the response — tracking the pandemic, advising on critical interventions, distributing vital medical supplies to those in need— they are racing to develop and deploy safe and effective vaccines.
Vaccines save millions of lives each year. Vaccines work by training and preparing the body’s natural defences – the immune system – to recognize and fight off the viruses and bacteria they target. After vaccination, if the body is later exposed to those disease-causing germs, the body is immediately ready to destroy them, preventing illness.

The COVID-19 vaccine introduced in India will be as effective as any vaccine developed by other countries. Various phases of vaccine trials are undertaken to ensure its safety and efficacy.

Which COVID-19 vaccines are licensed in India?
Two vaccines that have been granted emergency use authorization by the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) in India are Covishield® (AstraZeneca’s vaccine manufactured by Serum Institute of India) and Covaxin® (manufactured by Bharat Biotech Limited).

What is the composition of both the vaccines?
Composition of Covishield includes inactivated adenovirus with segments of Coronavirus, Aluminium Hydroxide Gel, L-Histidine, L-Histidine Hydrochloride Monohydrate, Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate, Polysorbate 80, Ethanol, Sucrose, Sodium Chloride, and Disodium Edetate Dihydrate (EDTA). Composition of Covaxin includes inactivated Coronavirus, Aluminum Hydroxide Gel, TLR 7/8 Agonist, 2-Phenoxyethanol and Phosphate Buffered Saline [NKA1].

Is it mandatory to take the vaccine?
Vaccination for COVID-19 is voluntary. However, it is advisable to receive the complete schedule of COVID-19 vaccine for protecting oneself against this disease and also to limit the spread of this disease to the close contacts including family members, friends, relatives and co-workers.(Curtesy to Govt.of India)

Face Masks
Cloth masks like the ones issued to each member of the De Paul community are useful in
drastically limiting the wearer’s potential to spread infection. From the early days of COVID-19
study, it was clear the illness is often spread via asymptomatic carriers. With this knowledge and
the growing body of evidence that suggests masks are effective in stopping the spread of
COVID-19, each member of the De Paul community, and visitors to campus, should abide by the
following protocol:

  • Masks must be worn on campus at all times and in all places (both outside and inside)
  • Please wash your hands or use sanitizer prior to handling your mask.
  • Use and Care of Cloth Face Masks

  • A cloth face mask should:

  • Fasten securely with ties or ear loops
  • Fit snugly but comfortably
  • Include multiple layers
  • Allow for breathing without restrictions
  • Be able to be laundered

  • Putting On/Taking Off the Mask

  • Wash hands or use hand sanitizer prior to handling.
  • Avoid touching the front of the mask.
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth when removing the mask.
  • Wash hands immediately after removing.

  • Care, Storage and Laundering

  • Cloth face masks may not be used more than one day at a time and must be washed after
    daily use.
  • They should be replaced immediately if soiled, damaged or visibly contaminated. 
  • Keep cloth face masks in a paper bag when not in use.

  • Physical Distancing
    Studies indicate that a significant portion of COVID-19 transmission is done by asymptomatic or
    presymptomatic individuals—those who don't know they are sick. That's why one of the first
    tools to employ in the fight against COVID-19 is physical distancing. Physical distancing means
    keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home. Although the risk of
    severe illness may be different for everyone, anyone can become infected and spread COVID-19.
    To practice physical distancing:

  • Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people
  • Do not gather in groups of more than 10.
  • Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings
  • Observe posted maximum occupancy of rooms and maintain all furniture configurations
    and space setups that maximize physical distancing.
  • Employees and visitors to campus are expected to keep at least 6 feet distance.

  • Hand Hygiene

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.  
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water
    are not available. 
  • Use the hand sanitation facilities installed in campus building entrances and other places.
  • Perform hand hygiene frequently, including after touching your mask or face, when
    entering common spaces, workrooms and break rooms, and while using shared
    workspaces, electronic devices, equipment or other tools.

  • Daily Health Check

    The daily health check is a critically important tool in our efforts to keep members of De Paul
    community safe and healthy. Each of us - students, faculty and staff - is required to complete a
    daily temperature check at the entrance of the Main Gate. Temperature screenings of individuals
    facing an increased risk of exposure can help slow the spread of COVID-19.
    Individuals designated as temperature screeners will also monitor other symptoms. Screeners
    will evaluate individuals for flushed cheeks, fatigue, difficulty breathing, and cough prior to
    screening. Anyone that seems sick will be provided information about next steps.
