H1N1 Influenza / Swine Flu Information

Student Health Center

Update: Health Center open Saturday and Sunday

October 30, 2009

In light of the current outbreak of influenza-like illness on campus, the Health Center will be open Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. for students with acute illnesses.  No advance appointment is required.  In addition, as always, EMTs are available to assess student health concerns when the Health Center is closed.

Members of the Hamilton Emergency Response Team ("HERT") continue to meet regularly to monitor and address Hamilton's flu situation. For additional information, please refer to the "Frequently Asked Questions" (and answers) that have been posted to the H1N1 website: http://www.hamilton.edu/SwineFlu/faq.html

We encourage students who are sick to please take advantage of the meal pick-up system available in the dining halls, which simply requires that a friend show a Hamilton Hill Card. It's important also to get plenty of rest and to stay hydrated. Dean of Faculty Joe Urgo and Associate Dean of Students Karen Brewer have sent a message to faculty members asking that they exercise flexibility with students who are sick.

Please take care of yourself and stay healthy.

Dean of Students
