Please be aware of the following:
Symptoms of flu include sudden onset of fever or chills and cough or sore throat. In addition, symptoms of flu can include body aches, headache, diarrhea, or vomiting.

Students who are sick:
Call Health Services to make an appointment to be seen. If you are too sick to leave your room contact your RA or Public Safety for assistance. Hydration packs are available from Health Services (860.768.6601).
Arrangements can be made for food delivery using the dining service "Get Well Buddy Form."

Faculty and staff:
Visit a health care provider to verify whether you have the flu or a cold. If flu is confirmed, contact your department head and/or direct supervisor. Faculty members, if possible, please notify your students through blackboard or e-mail on how class assignments will proceed. An interim policy change has been implemented for this year only involving paid time off for regular full-time staff who are displaying H1N1 flu-like symptoms. Eligible staff should discuss this policy with their supervisors.

If you have a confirmed case of the flu, we are asking that you plan to stay home or go home if you can. If you cannot get home, we ask that you self-isloate in your dorm room until your are fever-free for at least 24 hours without medication.

If you are diagnosed off campus, please notify us so may help you with notification of your classes.

To help prevent the further spread of flu, wash your hands often with soap and water. Use an alcohol-based hand cleaner if soap and water are not available.

*Hand-sanitizer dispensers are available in the dining halls and entrances to academic buildings. Please use them as you enter.

  • Cover your coughs and sneezes
  • Get the flu vaccine when it is available.
  • If a severe flu outbreak hits our community, we will take additional steps to avoid spreading the flu virus on campus.

If you have any questions about policies or would like to suggest action steps we can take, please e-mail us at flu@hartford.edu. By working together, we can protect our community and have a productive fall and winter.
