H1N1 virus protocol update

Stevens is carefully monitoring and preparing for the cold & flu season, and a message has been posted on the Stevens website to help students, faculty, and staff understand the advised protocols for dealing with possible H1N1 virus occurrences at http://www.stevens.edu/sit/h1n1.cfm

Health authorities recommend that you

* Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based gel
* Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze
* Avoid close contact with those with flu symptoms
* Eat nutritionally, drink plenty of water, and get adequate rest
