Illness Due to Flu
The H1N1 Flu Pandemic may impact classes this semester. If any of us develops flu-like symptoms,
we are being advised to stay home until the fever has subsided for 24 hours. So, if you exhibit
such symptoms, please do not come to class. Notify your instructor of your status via email, and we will work together to ensure
that course instruction and work is completed for the semester.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have posted simple methods to avoid transmission of
illness. These include: covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; frequently
washing your hands to protect from germs; avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth; and staying home when
you are sick. For more information, please view http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/habits.htm.
