Let's Do Our Part

Freed-Hardeman University is committed to addressing this crisis in a manner that serves the best interests of the students, faculty, staff, and community at large. You can trust that decisions will be made using the best data available, that consideration is given to the potential impact on all involved, and that safety is at the forefront.

According to a statement released by the Tennessee Health Commissioner, Dr. Lisa Piercy, the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) to the general population in Tennessee and the United States remains low. To do our part to help ensure that it remains low, particularly in our campus community, the following precautionary measures should be taken:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
