The flu season has started.  Humber encourages our staff, students and visitors to practice flu prevention techniques. 

Influenza, the “flu”, is a contagious respiratory infection typically caused by influenza A and B viruses.  Common symptoms include fever, chills, sore throat, cough, muscle aches and extreme fatigue. 

Help Prevent the Spread of the Flu:

  1. Obtain the flu vaccine.  
  2. Wash your hands often with soap and water / Use hand sanitizers.
  3. Cough or sneeze in a tissue or your sleeve.
  4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. 
  5. Regularly clean surfaces and shared items.
  6. Stay at home when you are sick.

What the College is doing over the Flu Season:

  • Flu vaccines available to staff and students from the Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre (SWAC). 
  • Hand sanitizing dispensers (e.g. by elevators) available in common public areas.
  • Additional cleaning and disinfecting measures in common public areas, including in the Residences, Athletics, Food Services, Computer Labs and Washrooms.
  • Regular communication with Toronto Public Health regarding flu prevention and treatment recommendations.
