TUCSON, Ariz. — The Campus Health Center at the University of Arizona is offering tips for travelers heading to or just coming back from trips to China.

Campus Health at UArizona said anyone traveling should avoid animals, dead or living, as well as animal markets.

Avoid products from animals and wash your hands regularly with soap for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.

If you feel sick Campus Health urges people to stay home and avoid contact with others unless you're seeking medical attention.

They say to get medical help immediately, cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough and to also wash your hands regularly.

A Campus Health official told KGUN9, the goal is to immediately identify anyone who has traveled to China and may have these symptoms.
