H1N1 Flu Advisory No. 5
Remain Vigilant in Preventing Spread of H1N1 Virus

Federal health officials have rescinded an earlier recommendation that schools shut down if they have suspected cases of the virus. To date, UT Arlington has had no positive indication of the H1N1 virus among students tested by the campus Health Services clinic.
Health officials, however, urge the campus community to remain vigilant in preventing the spread of the influenza virus. Measures include staying home if you are ill, washing your hands frequently and using hand sanitizer in areas where people congregate or touch common objects.
