H1N1 Influenza, Fall 2009
It is likely that the College and surrounding community will see significant numbers of H1N1 influenza cases this fall and winter. Most people who come down with the H1N1 flu recover without complications. The College has made detailed plans and preparations for dealing with an influenza outbreak. All of our strategies are based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and the NH Department of Health and Human Services. We will post updated information frequently to keep everyone informed.
Update - February 22, 2010
from Christine Burke, Director, Health and Wellness
Cases of influenza-like illness (ILI) remain low on campus. However, we are seeing an increase in general sickness, which is normal for this time of the year. We have advised students to contact the Center for Health and Wellness if they become sick and need evaluation. For faculty and staff, please see your primary health provider if you become ill.
As always, please continue with self-care strategies for wellness. Hand washing, cough etiquette, eating well, and getting enough exercise and sleep all go a long way toward keeping you healthy!
We will not issue regular updates on H1N1 influenza unless the current situation changes.
