Geneva prepares for H1N1 virus

Geneva College, aware of the risk of H1N1 flu, is advising students, faculty and staff to take precautions to avoid getting sick. Geneva College is following the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines on how to prepare for and respond to the possibility of an outbreak of the flu.

The best way to prevent the spread of the flu is to follow best practices. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue (or when not available, your elbow or shoulder) when you cough or sneeze. Wash your hands often with soap and water, and use the hand sanitizer that is now available in dispensers around campus. Keep your residential room clean and frequently disinfect commonly used surfaces such as doorknobs, computer keyboards and remote controls.

It is important to know the signs and symptoms of the flu:

  • A fever over 100 degrees
  • Fever or chills
  • A cough, sore throat or runny nose
  • Body aches, headache or extreme tiredness
  • Diarrhea or vomiting  

For more information on the H1N1 flu and Geneva College's communication to students, read this email from Geneva College’s nurse Connie Erwin to students or visit the H1N1 Flu page.
