Say No to Flu!

Ten simple words - but our biggest challenge.

Please do your part to keep our college community healthy:

Cover your cough. Cough and sneeze into your sleeve (not your  hand); or cover your mouth & nose with a tissue, dispose of the tissue and wash your hands. (view poster)

Wash your hands. Wash your hands with soap and warm running  water for at least 15 seconds; or if hand washing facilities are not available, use hand sanitizers located across campus.

Wash frequently: before and after eating, and food preparation; after sneezing, coughing or wiping your nose: before and after using shared computers and other equipment; and, after using the toilet. (view poster)

Stay home when ill.  If you develop influenza-like illness (ILI), including  respiratory symptoms, fever and one or more of the following: sore throat, muscle aches, joint pain, or weakness, it is important that you stay home.

You should stay home until your fever is gone and you are feeling well.
