Emergency Response Plan

Influenza H1N1 (Swine Flu)

Past Communication - 08/20/09

As the fall semester begins, the Wellness Center wants to provide everyone with an updated Q&A regarding Novel Influenza A (H1N1), formerly known as "Swine Flu," and reinforce important steps you can take to stay healthy this season.

As always, students, faculty, or staff members who live either on or off campus, and who have an influenza-like illness, should self-isolate (i.e., stay away from others) in their dorm room or home for at least 24 hours after being fever free, even when not using a fever-reducing medicine. Affected individuals should only leave to seek medical care and/or obtain necessities, and they should avoid contact with others to help prevent the spread of the virus.

We encourage everyone to take precautions in order to stay healthy and to do your part in keeping the community safe. Public health authorities recommend the following:

Symptoms of Novel Influenza A (H1N1) are similar to seasonal influenza and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue. Some people have also reported diarrhea and vomiting. Students experiencing flu-like symptoms should call the Wellness Center at 773.508.8883. Faculty and staff members should contact their health care providers.
