How does COVID-19 spread?

COVID-19 is believed to be spread mainly by coughing, sneezing or direct contact with someone who is sick with COVID-19 or with surfaces they have recently touched (Source: AHS website).

What do I do if I am not feeling well?

If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, extreme tiredness), it is recommended that you:

  • Self-isolate
  • Call Health Link at 811

If you are not seriously ill, do not go to a doctor’s office, health care facility or a lab, without consulting Health Link 811 first.

If you are seriously ill and require immediate attention, call 911, and inform them you may have COVID-19.

Employees should inform their supervisor.


The ongoing outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) was first reported from Wuhan, China, on 31 December 2019. This website contains information on the COVID-19 virus and CUE’s response to a potential pandemic.

CUE’s administration has developed a comprehensive, detailed, and practical plan of action for the university should the situation escalate. Three levels of response have been identified.
