Story submitted on behalf of Dr. David E. Newman, director of student health services.

I want to take this opportunity to assure the Ithaca College community that the staff of the Hammond Health Center is closely monitoring the situation regarding the swine flu outbreak, and will keep you updated as campus conditions warrant. It is important to note that there have been no reported cases affecting anyone within the campus or local communities.

The Hammond Health Center website (see below) provides links to important sources of information, including the World Health Organization, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and New York State Department of Health. Please check these resources regularly for the most up-to-date news. The website also contains FAQs about swine flu, including prevention and treatment information.

Begin notifying the publishers of magazines and newspapers you receive where you will be in May. Their toll free numbers and web sites are usually listed in the front or back of the publication. This mail class is not forwarded by the USPS from our College. The USPS notifies the publishers of the permanent address we provide on the publication and then discards the mail piece.
