COVID-19 Social Media Toolkit

WVU is partially in-person for fall, and looks to continue that trend in the Spring semester. We’ve created some graphics that are free to use across social media for posts to communicate COVID-19 health and safety.

Communication takeaways:

 

Example social media posts:

COVID-19 symptoms are similar those when you get a cold, the flu, or allergies. Get tested for COVID-19 to rule out a possible coronavirus infection, and help keep yourself and other safe. Testing information: https://www.wvu.edu/return-to-campus/what-to-do-if

COVID-19 symptoms can mirror those of allergies, colds, and influenza. Get yourself tested for COVID-19 to rule out a potential infection.

Masks and face coverings are required at West Virginia University at all times when on campus. Asymptomatic carriers (without symptoms) often don't know they have the virus and can infect others. Masks help stop COVID-19 droplet spread.

WVU requires all students, faculty and staff wear masks or face coverings at all times.

Mask hygiene is also important. Wash them regularly with soap and water in a sink, or throw them in with a typical load of laundry. Let them air dry to maintain their shape. If you can't do laundry as easily, consider multiple masks to alternate throughout the week.

Wash your face masks: Throw them in with regular laundry, or hand-wash in a sink with soap and water. Let air dry.
