Faculty and staff

Visit a healthcare provider to verify whether you have the flu or a cold. If flu is confirmed, contact your department head and/or direct supervisor. Faculty members, if possible, please notify your students through Blackboard or email on how class assignments will proceed.


If you have a confirmed case of the flu

Please, stay home or go home if you can. If you cannot get home, please self-isloate in your dorm room until you are fever-free for at least 24 hours without medication.

If you are diagnosed off campus, please notify us so we may help you with notification of your classes.

Help prevent the further spread of flu

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use an alcohol-based hand cleaner if soap and water are not available.
  • Hand-sanitizer dispensers are available in the dining halls and entrances to academic buildings. Please use them as you enter.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.
  • Get the flu vaccine.

If a severe flu outbreak hits our community, we will take additional steps to avoid spreading the flu virus on campus.

If you have any questions about policies or would like to suggest action steps we can take, please email us at flu@hartford.edu. By working together, we can protect our community and have a productive fall and winter.
