H1N1 Information

The University is continuing its planning efforts to address any possible H1N1 flu outbreak on campus. The primary focus is on prevention and the health and safety of students, staff and faculty.

All of the University’s efforts are being co-ordinated with Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health, which will continue to provide information and advice.

According to the World Health Organization, the overwhelming majority of people with the H1N1 virus experience mild symptoms and make a rapid and full recovery without medical treatment.

All students, faculty and staff are being reminded of the importance of staying home if they have symptoms of influenza, which include fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches, fatigue, severe headache, sore throat and lack of appetite. Public Health recommends that people remain at home until 24 hours after the fever has broken or they’re symptom-free.

Students who miss classes and assignments due to illness should contact their professors once they are well to discuss accommodations for missed school work.
