Covid 19 Support

COVID-19 Xavier Support Resources

At the beginning of this semester, chances are you didn’t see yourself living and working in isolation or constantly being encouraged to embrace previously extreme anti-social behaviors. Yet, here we are.

The good news is, we’ve kept it together so far this semester and now we’re in the homestretch! Musketeers, you’re almost at the end of the school year and maintaining your personal health and overall wellness is just as crucial now as it’s always been.

While the initial turmoil around COVID-19 has begun to simmer down the more we adjust to it being part of our reality, the resources we’ve made available to you earlier in the semester are still in full effect. We have no intention of letting up on providing our support as we near the end of the semester, and we hope you have no intentions of letting up on your selfcare.

What exactly is selfcare? Simply put, it’s taking care of yourself. Of course, in the midst of a pandemic, it can look a bit different than it normally would and in fact, it should. Selfcare is more than just maintaining the body. During a time where isolation is required and physical human interaction is discouraged, your mental and emotional state can be just as much at risk.

Selfcare is:

  • Video chatting with your family and friends regularly to avoid being completely disconnected.
  • Taking your dog for a walk every couple of hours to break up being inside as you work from home all day.
  • Staying educated on the best practices to maintain social distancing and sanitation to limit potential chances of contracting or spreading COVID-19.
  • Working out in the mornings to prevent becoming sedentary and sluggish which also affects mental health.
  • Finding ways to entertain yourself and coming up with exciting things you can look forward to each day no matter how small.

The list goes on, and so do the original tools we’ve provided from day one to assist you in staying on track with your selfcare.

The official Xavier coronavirus page is kept current for your convenience, so feel free to use it for timely updates on all things COVID-19.
