Flu information

on February 8, 2010 in Other

As the semester gets underway, I want to remind you that we are moving into the flu season with an entirely new level of awareness. I encourage each of us to pay attention to the symptoms and utilize protection mechanisms. The following provides a briefing and some helpful information:

  • We are continuing to monitor updates from the Center on Disease Control on the regular flu and the H1N1 virus.
  • The College will maintain a specific website on influenza and health information and updates. The link will be posted from our main SJC website in order to make access easy.
  • You can contact Ginger Lambert in the Safety Office if you need hand sanitizer. Her extension is 6183 or her email is ginger.lambert@sjcd.edu.
  • We are tracking employees and students who have influenza-like symptoms. I am asking that you contact Ginger Lambert at the phone or email address above so she can keep track of the health of our students and employees. Influenza symptoms include fever over 100°, weakness, fatigue, lack of appetite, coughing, and sore throat. The website will have more detailed information for you.
  • Be sure to wash your hands often and thoroughly, cough and sneeze into your sleeve or a tissue, keep commonly touched surfaces and items clean, and stay home if you’re sick.
