The Latest on H1N1
Many colleges are already putting plans in place and publicizing those plans for students. Basically, if a student gets H1N1, they’re recommending that each students, that develops the problem, have transportation to go home as part of their preparedness. They should remain home for at least 24 hours after they no longer have fever, without the use of fever reducing medications. In addition to that, for students who need to remain on campus or can’t get home, they believe self-isolation is important, which includes, social distancing-keeping about 6 feet away from others, wearing a mask when moving into a shared bathroom, and also continuing frequent hand washing and the use of a hand sanitizer. Obviously all of theses things are important because they are anticipating problems ahead of time and that may be the most important way to reduce spread.
