UF, Santa Fe Preparing for Swine Flu
University of Florida health officials say so far 100 students have come in with symptoms of swine flu. Wednesday, a memo was sent out to UF deans outlining steps should there be an outbreak of the H1N1 flu virus.
"We are doing what is reasonable given that number of students, but a lot of it comes down to individual responsibility," said Steve Orlando, University of Florida spokesperson. "Students, faculty, staff all need to do what it takes to either stay well or not spread the germs."
Santa Fe College is also stepping up its efforts on campus. Hand sanitizer stations and flyers have been placed across campus. There is also updated information posted on the school's website.
"This college has taken a very proactive stance in trying to prepare this campus for the swine flu," said Daryl Johnston, Director of the Institute of Public Safety at Santa Fe College. "We've been meeting for months with the Alachua County Health Department talking about their best guidance."
