We're following CDC guidelines pretty closely. We have two confirmed cases now and expect more. For now, we're focused on getting more sanitizers around campus, educating our campus about symptoms/preventative measures, and requesting that students/employees with ILI stay home. We do have tentative plans for if the outbreak becomes much larger, which includes everything from expanding distance learning and having classes outside to shutting down the campus.
Lisa, we've formed an H1N1 Preparedness Team, which had its first official meeting this week -- although discussions in smaller groups have been taking place for months. Plans for pandemic levels are being created now; I actually have a meeting tomorrow to talk more about the communication plan. I'm interested to hear what others are doing and how they are planning to communicate to community members.
We had exactly one confirmed case on campus two weeks ago, which naturally prompted a panicked call to my office to put a huge flashing warning on the home page. Naturally, we refused, but did capitulate to putting a small banner/button above the fold linking to campus info.
