Though we have not seen an alarming number of flu cases among our employees, we have had some questions from students or their parents about returning to campus for classes. We urge you to be smart and considerate of your fellow students. If you have ongoing symptoms of the flu—cough, sore throat, fever, body aches, general weakness—please do not bring those back to campus. You are ready to come back when your fever has been gone for at least 24 hours AFTER you stopped taking fever-reducing medication.

Please keep in mind that if you come to Student Health Services with these symptoms, we will likely recommend that you return home. So be smart, and protect others.

Student Health Services has exhausted its supply of flu vaccine. If you have not been vaccinated, the department recommends you check with your doctor or pharmacist.

If you are not able to join us on the first day of spring semester, due to illness, please let Provost Mike Sherman know and he will pass the word to the appropriate faculty. E-mail him at provost@uakron.edu and make sure to include your full name and student ID number.

We welcome you back for the spring semester, but not if you bring the flu with you.

Answers to your questions about the flu.

The University of Akron's Zipmail is a compilation of University announcements for University students, sent each Friday unless circumstances require otherwise. The deadline for submissions to be considered by the University is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

Zipmail is a University of Akron communication vehicle established for the benefit of The University of Akron to communicate with its students. Items will be accepted for publication only when the University is directly involved in the activity through participation, sponsorship, or partnership with one of its recognized organizations, colleges or departments. The University reserves the right to edit or to refuse to run any submission for any reason. Zipmail is not, nor is it intended to be, a public forum or a limited public forum. Questions about the implementation of this policy may be directed to zipmail@uakron.edu.

Items to be considered for inclusion in Zipmail should be sent through the Zipmail Event Submission Form. Due to the volume of submissions received, items will not run more than one time.

Questions about specific announcements should be made to the contact person/department/organization listed in the announcement.Your event will automatically be forwarded to the University's online calendar. The Zipmail Coordinator can be reached at x2837.
