Flu information and WMU pandemic plan online
May 4, 2009
KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University today launched two online resources to help members of the University community monitor the latest news of the current outbreak of the H1N1 virus (Swine Flu) and learn more about WMU's plan in the event of a pandemic.
The flu information page provides links to relevant updates and recommendations from both campus and worldwide sources.
Pandemic preparedness pages include valuable information on the University's plan in the event of a pandemic, whether relatively mild or severe, which has been developed over more than three years.
Stay informed and take reasonable precautions
WMU President John M. Dunn today issued a message to all students, faculty and staff urging them to use the new online resources to stay informed about the current flu outbreak, take common-sense precautions to avoid the spread of flu and familiarize themselves with the University's plans for dealing with a pandemic.
"We're beginning the Summer I session under unusual circumstances," Dunn wrote, "as our nation addresses the possibility of a pandemic. We will face the challenges ahead with solid preparation, thanks to the hard work of a group of staff and faculty members."
