Cold and flu season information for students

As we head into cold and flu season, we want to share some tips for keeping yourself (and others) healthy!

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using the toilet and before eating.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched items, like cell phones, desks and doorknobs.
  • Avoid kissing, sharing eating utensils and close contact with sick people.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze in a tissue or your elbow.
  • Get a flu vaccine every year!

Come to the Student Flu Clinic on Thursday, Oct. 4, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at WCSU Health Services in Litchfield Hall on the Midtown campus. Bring your insurance card. No appointment needed.
