Flu Prevention Tips from the NYS Dept. of Health

Influenza, commonly known as the flu, has been spreading rapidly across the state of New York this season. Symptoms include fever, cough, chills, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, vomiting, headaches, and fatigue. The NYS Department of Health urges people to stay home if they have any of these symptoms in order to prevent any further spreading of the virus. Below are some more tips to stay healthy this season.

Wash your hands with soap and water frequently, especially after coughing or sneezing. Further, cough and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow, not your hands, and avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose. Talk to your health care provider about getting vaccinated for the flu. Anyone who is pregnant or has a chronic medical condition should seek medical attention immediately if any flu symptoms arise.


Deep River Dialogues

The Office of Spiritual Life is teaming up with the Integrity Committee this semester to bring a speaker series to Saint Rose. It will be called Deep River Dialogues, and it will take place in the Hubbard Interfaith Sanctuary with a snack reception afterwards. The common themes of these dialogues will be meaning, purpose, and passion.

The first speaker will be Dr. Steve Birchak, a professor from the School of Education, at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 21. Dr. Bichak has been a keynote speaker at over forty conferences and has written five books. In 2015, he was also the recipient of the New York State Champion of Character Award because of the anti-bullying work he has done with schools and other organizations.
