As you know, we have been communicating
regularly with our campus
community about preparing for a difficult flu season with the
re-emergence of the H1N1 Influenza. The University is well prepared to
meet the needs of our community.
With a recent confirmation of a documented case of H1N1 within our community, we are taking the opportunity to remind everyone about the importance of staying informed and following all the health recommendations. While it is practically impossible to stop the spread of influenza viruses on our campus, the impact on individuals and operations can be greatly reduced by taking these effective steps:
** receive the vaccines;
** wash your hands regularly;
** cough or sneeze into your sleeve;
** get adequate rest and nutrition.
