According to the CDC, flu activity in the United States continues to decrease. Only a small number of influenza cases are being reported, most are caused by the 2009 H1N1 virus. Flu is still unpredictable, and sporadic cases caused by H1N1 or other flu viruses will likely continue throughout the spring and summer. The 2009 H1N1 virus continues to circulate internationally, and the flu season in the Southern Hemisphere is just beginning. For international flu updates, please visit the CDC website. Lewis & Clark will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates periodically.
Please be mindful that the CDC website will have the most up to date information available. In addition, check this site often for any L&C specific updates. General information applicable to all of our community members is offered below, along with links to the CDC, state and local health departments. Information for specific college groups (students, faculty, employees) can be found through the links on the right.
