If you are experiencing flu symptoms—fever, cough, sneezing, chills, aches, and sometimes diarrhea or vomiting, do not come to work, teach class, or attend public events. You should avoid others as much as possible until you have had no fever without using a fever-lowering medication for 24 hours. Consider purchasing a thermometer to check your temperature. If you must be around others, wear a surgical mask or some kind of fabric over your mouth and nose.

At this time, the university has not altered paid time off or sick leave policies. Employees are encouraged to manage their paid time off and sick leave in anticipation of the possibility of contracting flu.
