Posted: May 26, 2009

Over the past several days, two additional members of the UH Mānoa community have tested positive for H1N1 flu (swine flu) — a student and a staff employee. Both are recovering from mild forms of the illness.

Earlier this month, on May 8, H1N1 was confirmed in a UH Mānoa student, who has since fully recovered.

Anyone who shows signs of flu-like illness should contact the University Health Services at 956-8965. Symptoms of H1N1 virus include: sudden fever, coughing, sore throat, body aches and pains/fatigue.

We continue to encourage everyone to follow good infection control practices, including avoiding others if you are sick with flu symptoms to help reduce the spread of the virus.

Cover your cough or sneeze, wash your hands often, and do not come to work or school if you are sick.

There are currently no changes to university operations or activities and the campus is operating normally.
