A fever is a sign of illness. If you have a fever you need to be at home to prevent sharing your illness. If you are ill with a fever it is recommended you contact your health care provider. Students should be encouraged to call the health center for advice. Ebola has been in the news frequently after a prolonged outbreak in Africa. If you or someone you know develops a fever after travel to West Africa, please call your health care provider for advice.
This is also a good time to make sure you are up to date on your immunizations. Check with your health care provider to see if you need additional vaccinations.
Watch for the flu vaccination clinics on campus coming in October. Protecting yourself will help to keep our campus healthy and our classrooms full of healthy learners.
Hand washing is an effective tool to help reduce the spread of disease.
