H1N1 Flu (swine flu) Update | 9/9/2009

Dear Members of the UST Community,

The University of St. Thomas has been monitoring the incidence of the H1N1 Flu (swine flu) locally and around the nation.  At this time, the University has no reported or suspected cases of H1N1 flu.  However, we will continue to monitor the situation and stay abreast of guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  Please monitor this web page for updates.

The best advice for you is to take personal precautions to keep yourself and those around you healthy by following these steps:

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
  • If you get sick, stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to prevent spreading the flu.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

If you are ill, please stay home and contact your personal physician.  If you do not have a physician, you may call the University of Texas Health Services at 713-500-3248 to schedule an appointment.   

If you are a student and become infected with the H1N1 flu, please contact the University’s Office of Health Promotion and Wellness (HP&W) at 713-525-3513.  If you are faculty or staff, please contact your primary care provider and your immediate supervisor, or Human Resources at 713-525-3142.

Please rest assured that we will keep you informed of any developments that affect the University of St. Thomas community.  

If we need to use the Emergency Notification System (ENS), it is important that your contact information is correct and up to date.  We also encourage you to update your emergency notification information to enable text messaging.  Information and instructions for ENS can be found at www.stthom.edu/ens.
