What You Can Do About the Flu: A Guide for UW–Madison Students

August 31, 2009, 1:08 pm

H1N1 influenza (a.k.a. “swine flu”) first appeared in the U.S. last spring and continued to infect people throughout the summer. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this new strain of influenza seems to be particularly infectious to people between ages 5 and 24, so all college campuses must prepare for the possibility that a lot more people than usual could get sick this year.

Please help protect your own health and that of your campus community by learning what precautions you can take to lower the risk of spreading or contracting influenza and making a Personal Influenza Plan just in case you do get sick. (Updated Aug. 31.)
