Influenza Alert

Influenza (Flu) cases are rapidly rising nationally and in Massachusetts. As you return to campus, please be aware that many students, faculty and staff are returning from all over the country and the world where exposure rates are also high. Your risk of exposure to the Influenza virus is greatly increased as you enter places where many people are in close contact. Please take the following measures to stay well.

  • Get a flu shot if you have not already done so.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Keep your hands away from your face - eyes, nose and mouth.

Refer to the Health Services self-care instructions for influenza treatment recommendations. More information can be found under Health Advisories.

Those who are experiencing flu-like symptoms should stay home from work or school until they are fever free for at least 24 hours without using fever reducing medications.
