As we embark on the spring semester, we understand that
the campus may be concerned about the possibility of the spread of the flu, which has recently received significant media attention.  According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, as of the first week of January, there was widespread flu activity in Pennsylvania and most of the United States.  The majority of influenza viruses circulating are influenza A (H3N2).  

The Muhlenberg College Pandemic Influenza Response Team is continually monitoring the situation and preparing for the probable arrival of this flu on campus.  We have been working with our local health department and have been tracking information provided by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
