Lorain County Community College officials would like to remind all campus community members of the need to stay informed and current on the 2009 flu season.  College officials have been working to ensure continuity of course room instruction and business operations, and to educate campus community members on what to do if they are sick.   All campus community members should utilize the following precautions to reduce their exposure to seasonal flu and H1N1:

  • Practice good hand hygiene- frequent, thorough hand washing for 20 seconds, also consider carrying a bottle of hand sanitizer with you at all times;
  • Practice cough & respiratory etiquette- cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze; if you don’t have a tissue readily available, use your upper sleeve;
  • Stay home and avoid contact with others if you are sick; 
  • Get vaccinated in order to protect against seasonal flu and H1N1

Students and employees with severe respiratory or flu-like illness are encouraged not to attend class or work until they are without fever for 24 hours without the aid of fever-reducing medication.
