Wilmington Universoty sent this to its students, staff and other supporters. Please take heed:

In recent weeks, Delaware and much of the area has experienced an outbreak of influenza. Following the guidance of public health officials, we ask that everyone take the actions below in order to help prevent the spread of influenza and to minimize the impact of influenza on our community.

*  Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. When a tissue is unavailable, cover coughs or sneezes with your elbow or shoulder instead of your hands.
*  Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
*  Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
*  Monitor yourself for the symptoms of influenza-like illnesses which include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.
*  Avoid contact with others if you are sick: stay home from work, classes and public places.
*  If you have been diagnosed with the flu or are suffering from flu-like symptoms please contact the University Information Center<http://www.wilmu.edu/contact.aspx?utm_source=bbconnect&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=fluprevention&utm_content=contactUIC> at (302) 356-4636<tel:+13023564636>.
