Daily 49er to suspend print production; stay up-to-date about the coronavirus online

In accordance with Long Beach State’s decision to suspend face-to-face instruction—due to novel-coronavirus concerns—we at the Daily Forty-Niner have chosen to suspend print production until further notice. 

We will still be producing a digital copy of the print edition and updating with all coverage pertaining to the coronavirus and campus news. 

We at the Daily Forty-Niner are committed to being the go-to source for all campus news and we will be working around-the-clock to keep the community up-to-date.

Symptoms can begin to present one to 14 days after initial exposure, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

How is it transmitted?

● Contact with droplets from a sneeze or cough.

● Touching of eyes, mouth or nose with dirty hands.

Are you at risk?

If yes to either, and you begin to present symptoms, call your doctor and ask to be tested. 


There is currently no treatment for COVID-19, but the CDC recommends measures to contain the spread of the virus.

● Self-isolate; avoid contact with others including pets; only leave your house for food or medical attention.

● Wear a face mask.

● Wash your hands often and for at least 20 seconds; sanitizer must contain over 60% alcohol to be effective.

● Clean “high-touch” areas every day.  

● Maintain a six-foot distance from other individuals; abide by “social distancing” recommendations. 

● Avoid gatherings with more than nine people. 

 Alert health officials if you think you have COVID-19; monitor your symptoms.
