H1N1 (Swine) Flu Emergency Preparedness
RIT has been planning for influenza pandemic for several years, beginning when concerns about Avian Influenza surfaced. Those plans have been tailored to meet the current 2009 H1N1 Influenza, which is much less severe. (According to federal, state and local health officials, the current 2009 H1N1 flu is no more serious than the seasonal flu). We have been actively monitoring all guidance being provided by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and the New York State Department of Health. We also continue to work closely with the Monroe County Department of Public Health.
Our primary goal is to make sure that teaching, learning, scholarship, leadership development, and student success continue. We can do this by working together to keep the number of people getting sick with the flu as low as possible.
This site provides important information about what can be done to prevent people from getting the flu and what to do if they get sick. It also has information specific to students, staff, faculty and supervisors.
If you are a student, staff or faculty member that has specific questions or concerns that were not addressed by this site, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
