Coronavirus Updates and Resources

The campus MD and Director of Health Services are in regular contact with Napa County Health Department's (NCHD) Communicable Disease Unit. Currently the risk to PUC and surrounding community is low. This site is intended to make updates and resources easily accessible as they are able. PUC will notify the college campus in the event of any concerns that we are made aware of by the NCHD or state agencies.

Prevention and Symptoms


Preventative measures are especially vital in a communal living environment like the PUC campus. The same precautions that have kept incidence of illness on campus low this season are recommended to prevent the spread of coronavirus. They include the following:

  • Washing hands with liquid soap and water, and rubbing for at least 20 seconds
  • Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing
  • Staying home if you are sick


The virus typically causes a mild-to-moderate respiratory illness, though the elderly or those with conditions that make viruses of greater concern (e.g. cardiovascular, chronic asthma, diabetes, kidney failure, pregnant women, and infants) may be at increased risk. Symptoms are very similar to the flu and include fever, runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat, and/or shortness of breath.
