Influenza Incident Reporting

Influenza Incident Reporting

Based upon Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations, members of the campus community who develop flu-like symptoms (fever and chills AND a cough or sore throat) should stay home for a period of at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever or no longer have signs of a fever without using fever-reducing medicines. This would likely be a period of 3-5 days.

During this time, it is extremely important that the Student Health Center be able to monitor the prevalence of flu within our campus population. To assist in this effort, we have created this web based Influenza Incident Reporting tool.

Managers and supervisors are asked to report, on a weekly basis, the number of known or suspected flu incidents within your staff and academic employee population. Academic department managers are asked to coordinate the reporting of incidents within their academic employee population by requesting that academic employees inform the department office if they are ill with flu-like symptoms.


  • Reports should be made by close of business on Thursday of each week.
  • Supervisor provides the number of flu incidents for their unit. Please note: one employee who calls in sick for 5 days should be reported as one incident.
