CoronaVirus: Mesa Community "circle of Prevention"

San Diego Mesa College is committed to supporting the health and wellbeing of our community, especially during increased flu activity and the public health situation related to a novel strain of coronavirus. To keep our community as safe as possible, we have created a “Circle of Prevention” in order to provide information and updates to the campus.

Please see the information below with alerts and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Please note that this information is time specific, and may change as local and national healthcare agencies provide updates.

Helpful information from the CDC (these materials are available in English, Spanish, and Chinese):

ACHA Survey Results

Mesa Student Health Services partnered with the American College Health Association to provide a valid and reliable student survey in 2018-2019.  Over 500 Mesa students were surveyed.  The results are provided in 2 ways: 

Executive Summary
Raw Data

The focus of the survey is physical and mental health.  The survey results provide a clear picture about what our students believe about their health, their activities, mental health status and much more.  It is important to know what issues, problems and concerns face our students because this gives a more comprehensive picture of who our students are in an “unseen” manner.
