With the start of the new academic year, expectations are that H1N1 Flu cases will rise as faculty and students circulate on University of Pittsburgh campuses. College students, in particular, are a high-risk group for contracting the virus, which can cause mild to severe illness, and occasionally death. Everyone should take precautions to prevent getting or spreading the virus. Stay informed through the HSLS H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu) Web site. The Web site contains current, authoritative information on all aspects of the H1N1 flu. Avoiding this virus and preventing it from spreading should be everyone’s goal.
