University Response to H1N1
Since the onset of the H1N1 virus last spring, the University has been closely monitoring the reports of human cases of H1N1 throughout the world. Since the University’s initial planning this spring, the H1N1 virus has been identified in Albany County according to the Albany County Department of Health. The University Health Center will continue to work with federal, state and local public health agencies to provide the most current guidance in addressing this public health issue for our campus community.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has been monitoring the spread of H1N1 and raised the current pandemic alert level to Phase 6. Please note, however, that the WHO pandemic alert level refers to how widespread this virus is and does not reflect disease severity.
