Campus Health Updates

The health and safety of UC’s Bearcat community is a top priority. 

On our campuses and throughout Cincinnati, our medical experts and health and wellness professionals work collaboratively to help ensure a healthy environment in which our students, faculty and staff can teach, learn, work and flourish.  

Through the COVID-19 pandemic, we learned that by working together we can prioritize our health and safety and reduce the spread of communicable diseases.  

Let’s continue to work together and be mindful of viruses currently present in and around our community. 


Flu season is here! Due to current influenza trends occuring across the globe, cases of the flu could be higher than usual this year. UC's medical experts encourage you to get a flu vaccine, learn about symptoms and when to seek medical care.


COVID-19 is still spreading. Although positive cases are on the decline, testing is available. Masking indoors is strongly encouraged and required in all College of Medicine buildings. 


Monkeypox is a viral disease that has been declared a public health emergency. All members of the Bearcats community are encouraged to learn about symptoms, protective measures, and what to do if exposed.

One of those was Carl Fichtenbaum, MD, of the Division of Infectious Diseases at the UC College of Medicine.
