Memo recaps OHIO's safety steps on flu outbreak

May 6, 2009  
From staff reports   

Ohio University officials said Tuesday that they are closely monitoring the evolving H1N1 influenza A outbreak through daily updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other health information sources.

In a memo to faculty, staff and students, David Hopka, assistant vice president for safety and risk management, said Ohio University already has, or is in the process of, implementing CDC recommendations for institutions of higher education in response to the virus. Those measures include working with the student health center to track and report influenza-like illness to the county health department and reviewing university plans for responding to a public health emergency to ensure they are up-to-date.

Hopka stressed the safety of students, faculty and staff remains the institution's top priority. He also said the university will use Outlook and the Emergency Information link from the university home page as primary communication channels.
Additional information about H1N1, he said, could be found at the Ohio Department of Health's Web site at www.odh.ohio.gov and the CDC's Web site www.cdc.gov.
