Flu Information

Flu can be spread easily and quickly from person to person. We are taking steps to lower the spread of flu at Centralia College, but we need your help.

Here are a few things you can do to help:
  • Wash your hands with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing. Alcohol-based hand cleaners also are effective.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you donít have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow or shoulder, not into your hands. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth; germs are spread this way.
  • Know the signs and symptoms of the flu. A fever is a temperature equal to or greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit or 38 degrees Celsius. Look for possible signs of fever: if the person feels very warm to the touch, has a flushed appearance, or is sweating or shivering.
  • If you have flu or flu-like symptoms, STAY HOME for at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever (100 degrees Fahrenheit or 38 degrees Celsius) or signs of a fever (have chills, feel very warm, have a flushed appearance, or are sweating). This should be determined without the use of fever-reducing medications (any medicine that contains ibuprofen or acetaminophen). Donít go to class or work.
  • Talk with your health care providers about whether you should be vaccinated for seasonal flu. For more information about priority groups for vaccination, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Pandemic event preparedness

A pandemic flu event, according to many health professionals, is a matter of when, not if, it will happen. History has been dotted with outbreaks that have claimed millions of lives. It is impossible to predict how devastating a pandemic event might be in Southwest Washington but health professionals and state political leaders remind us that everyone should be prepared.

Centralia College is working with the State Department of Health in preparing updated information that will help each individual with a personal and family guide that includes information and directions as he or she prepares for a pandemic event.

In the event of a pandemic outbreak, Centralia College will provide information on its operational status on the college's Web site. Other information will be posted as it becomes available.
