An Important Message from Health Services Regarding the Flu
Our Health Services office reports that as of December 9th, 2014, there are confirmed cases of influenza on campus. Due to the highly contagious nature of the influenza virus, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that people with Influenza or “Influenza-Like Illness” remain at home at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100 degrees), or signs of fever/chills, independent of the use of fever-reducing medications. In keeping with this recommendation, Stonehill College Health Services is instructing students that are diagnosed in our office to go to their family home to recover, or to stay in their residence hall room and avoid contact with other people. If you have been diagnosed at another facility, Health Services asks that you contact us, so that we can give you individualized recommendations, and so that we may keep track of the number of influenza cases on campus.
