Missouri State University sent a campus-wide email Monday outlining the latest information from the federal government on swine flu. KSMU’s Missy Shelton reports.
Prevention is the key word for administrators at Missouri State University who are staying on top of the latest news about swine flu. The campus-wide email provides information on the health advisory from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It also gives instructions for how to reduce the risk of contracting or spreading illnesses like swine flu.Earle Doman is Dean of Students at MSU.
Cut1 “As far as we know, there are no reported cases in Missouri or Arkansas but there are cases around the country and I anticipate we’ll hear more. What we’re doing is not much different than what we’ve done on campus during regular flu season.”
That includes encouraging people to wash hands and use hand sanitizers. It also means students, faculty and staff need to seek medical care immediately if they feel sick and have a fever. Even with the heightened awareness about getting medical attention, Doman says so far, the on-campus health clinic has not seen an increase in people seeking treatment.
