MEMO TO      :     THE UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY

The Department of Health, in its H1N1 Update No. 14, dated 18 May 2009, advised that "all incoming passengers from countries with confirmed Influenza A (H1N1) should closely monitor their health status for 10days from arrival."

 

In view of this advisory, we would like to request members of the community who have had travels from countries with confirmed cases of H1N1 virus to exercise self-quarantine for 10 days from their date of arrival before returning to the University. It is very important that the signs and symptoms be closely observed during the 10-day period.

 

School units are requested to formulate appropriate procedures to implement the above protocol to ensure health and safety of our community.

 

For more information on these, you may refer to the following websites: http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/qa.htm and http://www.ateneo.edu

 

Thank you.

 

 

BIENVENIDO F. NEBRES, S.J.

President
