College and COVID-19

This Monday thousands of college students all over the world begin to go back to class. Many of these college campuses are opening up more classes and requiring in-person classes. Though with the proper precautions taken this can be completely fine, many students may find this time very stressful. I know I personally am a bit nervous to have a class in person even though it’s only a single class. So for this blog post, I wanted to give students and anyone else some tools to help combat this stress and anxiety while also actually protecting themselves and others.

  1. Educate yourself 
    1. If the idea of getting COVID-19 is causing you anxiety, stress, or even intrusive thoughts it might be a good idea to read up on it. Look at the research and get an understanding of what it takes to get and prevent this virus. Many schools also have their own policies of wearing masks and needing to stay 6ft apart in class. All of these things can help to alleviate your worries.
  2. Talk to your professor
    1. Though your class is in person if you are high risk or are around someone who is you may be able to get an altered form of education. Communicating this to a professor or directly to the school you may be able to take the class online.
  3. Protect Yourself
    1. If you are unable to get an altered form of classes there are still many precautions you can take to stay healthy. Wearing a mask (maybe even two), Staying over 6 ft apart from others, and even gargling with a water peroxide mix after class.
  4. Healthy Coping Mechanisms
    1. Mediating, practicing mindfulness, getting tested if you think you might have been exposed.
