VII. Advisor Report
-Attempted to get the nameplates in, but they will get in by the next meeting.
-KU has had an outbreak (quite a large one), KU is not testing each and every student who has the symptoms because the cost too expensive. They have made the decision that anyone who has a fever and other symptoms of the swine flue has it without testing. They have also made the announcement that these students should isolate themselves and stay at home or go home to family if possible.
-Our Job: (make sure the student body knows all of the below information) Spread word about staying home and away from people if symptoms (fever) come about. Announce preventative steps such as; cough into ones arm not hand, don’t touch one’s face, and wash your hands after touching public high traffic areas.
-Faculty is being responsive and they know to allow students who have symptoms to stay at home and to work with them. If faculty does not respond and are not supportive talk to student affairs know about the situation.
-There are posters up with all of the preventative steps that need to be taken.
