Health News for Students and Faculty
Seasonal Flu Update, April 29, 2016
Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,
Please be advised that we are having a late seasonal outbreak of influenza in our campus community.
Signs and symptoms of the flu include sudden onset of:
- Fever of 100.4 or higher or feeling feverish/chills/body aches AND 1 or more of the following:
- Sore throat
If you become ill with the flu:
- If you have no underlying medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes or heart disease), it is important to rest, keep hydrated and use medications (such as Tylenol and ibuprofen) as necessary to relieve symptoms.
- Stay home until you are fever-free for 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing medications.
- If you have an underlying medical condition, please call or come to the Student Health and Counseling Center soon after symptoms begin.
What to do about missed classes:
- Students should communicate directly with professors by email or phone.
- Faculty is asked to be as flexible as possible and work with students to ensure that they are not unduly harmed by their absences. Please take the time to explain to students that the college’s absence policy has not changed and that they are still responsible for missed work.
Take steps to prevent the flu:
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
- Maintain a distance of at least 3 feet from infected individuals.
- Practice good hand hygiene by washing your hands with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing. Alcohol-based hand cleansers are also effective.
