Updated 10/29/09 

In an effort to keep SWCC students and employees informed about the H1N1 (Swine Influenza A) Viruses, Southwestern Community College will post updates and information as they become available.  Hand sanitizers are in all campus buildings and student housing facilities.  Students and staff are advised to utilize these units frequently and practice proper hand washing skills. 

If you think you are ill, the Iowa Department of Public Health advises you avoid close contact with others as much as possible. Stay at home, do not go to work, school, or travel while ill. Seek medical care if you are severely ill (such as having trouble breathing).
