Flu symptoms

Symptoms of flu usually come on suddenly and include fever and one or more of the following: cough, fatigue, sore throat, body aches, vomiting, headache.

Call your health care provider (students: call the Health Clinic) if your symptoms worsen or complications develop, including:

  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath

  • Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen

  • Sudden dizziness

  • Confusion or change in level of consciousness

  • Severe or persistent vomiting

  • Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough

If you have the flu

To support recovery and protect others, individuals with flu-like illnesses need to stay out of circulation-away from classes, work, dining facilities, and other public spaces-until they have been without symptoms for 24 hours (the lingering cough that sometimes follows the flu does not require ongoing isolation). We encourage students with relatives or friends within driving distance to consider recovering away from campus. Students with influenza-like illnesses can remain in their residence hall rooms or apartments to recover if they have no other available options.
