Flu-Prevention Kit Going to College Students

Flu-prevention kits are being distributed to Mississippi college students.

The Mississippi Department of Health will provide nearly 2,500 bags filled with individual hand sanitizer, pocket pack tissues and other items over the next two weeks to students at the state's eight universities. It's part of an effort to stop the spread of swine flu.

Business cards with campus health clinic phone numbers and hours of operation have already been sent to campus health clinics to be given out to students.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends faculty, students and staff with symptoms of the flu stay at home or in the dormitory until at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever or signs of a fever.
