Influenza A (H1N1) Guidelines at AIM

The spread of influenza A (H1N1) as a pandemic has become a cause of alarm for academic institutions, since the risk of transmission is high and hard to keep track of. This is also particularly and area of concern for the Asian Institute of Management, since it's an international school-- people form different countries (even countries that have high incidence of  influenza A (H1N1) come and go here.

W. SyCip Graduate School of Business Dean Victoria Licuanan recently sent the AIM community a message to be vigilant in reporting and following the government-recommended preventive measures to keep the campus safe for study and work. She also shared that AIM has developed a contingency plan to address the scenario where there becomes a local outbreak of the influenza A (H1N1) in the community.

My advice to the AIM folks is to keep healthy & maintain good hygiene, use the sanitizers scattered all through out the campus, and be wary of flu-like symptoms of your classmates, friends, and colleagues. I've gotten word of an unconfirmed report of a suspected case of influenza A (H1N1) in campus from a student. If ever that report is true, let's do our best to keep the community safe.

Taking a shower at least once a day keeps the doctor away! Haha!

Anonymous, shouldn't it be the other way round? - Not taking a shower at least once a day keeps the doctor away?!

:P
