UT Arlington Monitoring Swine Flu Developments

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Web site, as of Monday (April 27) at 2 p.m. there were 40 cases of confirmed swine flu in the United States. Two of these cases are in Texas. Our campus and work environments can contribute to the spread of illness. There are many things we can do as a community to stay healthy.

  • Avoid close contact with others who are sick; keep your distance from others if you are ill.
  • Do not come to work if you are ill.
  • Cover your mouth and nose if you cough or sneeze.
  • Discard used tissues in an appropriate trash receptacle, and avoid placing them on any surface that others may touch.
  • Wash your hands frequently and/or use a hand sanitizer, especially before eating.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Practice other good health habits; eat nutritious foods, get plenty of rest, exercise, manage your stress and drink plenty of fluids.

To learn more about swine flu, you may visit the CDC Web site. UT Arlington officials will continue to monitor information regarding this influenza outbreak and will communicate any developments that may impact the University community.
