OHLA CARES

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to make headlines around the world, we know this a stressful time for you and your international students. We want you to rest assure in knowing that OHLA is providing its student population with common sense precautions.

  1. OHLA offers FREE insurance coverage to active/current students in all of our programs. This means, if you currently have a student in one of our campuses they are automatically medically covered. 
  2. Much like any other illness, unforeseen emergency expenses related to COVID-19 would be covered by OHLA’s insurance plans (provided that the infection occurs in the United States after the effective policy date).

 

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS? 

Common symptoms are:

  1. Fever over 38°C
  2. Cough
  3. Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing

 

HOW IS IT SPREAD? 

COVID-19 is transmitted from person to person by respiratory droplets from coughing or sneezing. These droplets can be inhaled if you are in close contact with an infected person. Touching objects or surfaces with respiratory droplets on them and then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes can also spread the virus.
The time between exposure to the virus and the onset of symptoms is between 5 and 14 days, so the appropriate quarantine period for an individual exposed to COVID-19 is 14 days.
 

HOW IS IT TREATED? 

There is currently no vaccine for COVID-19. Medical care is focused on managing symptoms, by getting lots of rest, drinking plenty of fluids, and treating the fever. 
 

PREVENTION IS KEY: 

  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow when sneezing or coughing, and/or sneeze or cough into a tissue.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing or sneezing.
  • Stay home if you are sick. Do not use public transportation or taxis. Do not go to work, school, or other public places.
