In The News
Ebola Virus Disease has dominated the headlines in the recent weeks, and is likely to remain top of mind in the days to come. At this time, there is no indication that any individual in Massachusetts is confirmed to have Ebola. Much care is being taken to identify any potential cases. With cold and flu season upon us, we expect more people with flu-like symptoms to be vigilant about their symptoms such as high fever. It is important to remember that Ebola is very difficult to contract and is spread ONLY by close contact with the bodily fluids of a person who is sick with Ebola. It is not airborne or spread by coughing, sneezing, or sharing food. People are only contagious if they have active symptoms. Read More...
Campus health alert-Chicken Pox
A Northeastern student has presented to UHCS with symptoms which might indicate chickenpox (also called varicella). Chickenpox is caused by a virus and can be easily spread person to person by sneezing, coughing, or touching the rash. The immunization statuses of the student’s contacts have been reviewed and those without proof of immunity to chicken pox have been contacted directly. We all need to make an effort to minimize illness and risk to the Northeastern community. Checking your immunization status is the most important way to stop the disease. It is strongly recommended that all students, staff, and faculty check their vaccination history to be sure they have a record of two doses of chicken pox vaccine or history of the illness. Chicken pox immunizations are available to Northeastern students at UHCS. Read More...
