-Attempted toget the nameplates in, but they will get in by the next meeting.

 

-Swine Virus:

-KU has had an outbreak (quite alarge one), KU is not testing each and every student who has the symptomsbecause the cost too expensive. They have made the decision that anyone who has a fever and othersymptoms of the swine flue has it without testing.  They have also made the announcement that these studentsshould isolate themselves and stay at home or go home to family ifpossible.

 

-Our Job: (make sure the studentbody knows all of the below information) Spread word about staying home andaway from people if symptoms (fever) come about.  Announce preventative steps such as; cough into ones arm nothand, don’t touch one’s face, and wash your hands after touching public hightraffic areas.

 

-Faculty is being responsive andthey know to allow students who have symptoms to stay at home and to work withthem. If faculty does not respond and are not supportive talk to  student affairs know about thesituation.

 

-There are posters up with all ofthe preventative steps that need to be taken.
