If you are experiencing a fever, sore throat, cough or any of the other symptoms, please consider doing the following:
- If you have chosen not to take any medication, stay in your residence hall room until 24 hours after the fever has subsided.
- If you have been taking fever-reducing medication, stay in your room until you have been able to stop using the medication and to maintain a normal temperature for 24 hours.
For students who are feeling ill and stay in their room, arrangements can be made with dining services for meals to be delivered to you as you need. Any student living in the residence hall that has flu-like illness and is coughing or sneezing can obtain a surgical mask from the Resident Director of the hall. The masks are only for those who are ill in order to help prevent others from becoming sick. Wearing a mask provides no benefit to a healthy person.
