Thursday evening Northwest Nazarene University received notification of one confirmed case of H1N1. An H1N1 policy is in place that follows Center for Disease Control recommendations, and university personnel have worked closely with Idaho’s Southwest Health District. Approximately 80 students reported flu-like systems throughout the week.

“The safety and health of students and employees is our primary concern. The University will continue to encourage students to take precautions in line with our H1N1 action plan,” said Carey Cook, NNU vice president for student development.

NNU has been proactive in preparing for the flu season by providing hand sanitizer to students and employees in public locations, communicating the importance of prevention, and what symptoms to watch for as well as what to do if a student has influenza-like symptoms. The treatment and precautions are the same whether it is seasonal flu or H1N1.

Students feeling ill are asked to self-isolate.  Most often, students showing flu-like systems have recovered quickly.
