H1N1 Virus

H1N1 (Swine) Flu Policy

Cedar Crest College administration and health officials are closely monitoring the swine influenza A (H1N1) virus infection. The College works closely with our local hospitals and with the Allentown Health Bureau to monitor all communicable diseases. There is an Emergency Response Plan for our college community. During a pandemic event, we will contact the Allentown Health Bureau and the Pennsylvania Department of Health for further guidance.

Reports show that symptoms of the H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu) are similar to those of the typical flu. If you experience flu-like symptoms, students should contact Cedar Crest College Health Services at 610-606-4640. Staff and faculty members should contact their family physician.
