Cisco College’s Flu Season Planning

What is Cisco College doing?

We are working closely with Eastland County, Taylor County, and the Texas department of State Health Services to monitor flu conditions and make decisions about the best steps to take concerning our institution. We will keep you updated with any new information as it becomes available. For now, we are implementing a prevention campaign and the College is operating as usual.

What does Cisco's planning entail?

A college-wide pandemic response planning team has refined Cisco College’s safety plan to include contingencies for a possible H1N1 outbreak on campus. The team has based its response on guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Texas Department of State Health Services.

The College will communicate with students, faculty and staff about steps to diminish vulnerability to the flu. Cisco College has purchased and will place hand sanitizers in high traffic areas around both campus locations as well as continued sanitation efforts.

What happens if the flu becomes severe? 

The Cisco College planning team will work closely with state and local agencies to make necessary decisions about the best steps to take concerning our institution. Contingency plans will be activated if the flu becomes severe. Faculty, staff, and students who experience flu-like symptoms should avoid contact with others as much as possible, isolating themselves until fever has been gone 24 hours by staying home or in their residence leaving only to seek medical attention from their health care provider or local clinic.

How will Cisco College communicate updates?

Cisco College will post H1N1 updates on the College website as necessary. If issues with swine flu arise at either Cisco College location we may also send information and updates through the College emergency notification system. Links to preventative tips and measures from the CDC can be found on this website.
