Because flu can  spread by contact with people who are ill, Student Health Services recommends that community members take these precautions:


To all our Students & our Hofstra Community 

  • Get a flu shot.   Please call Student Health at 463-6745 for an appointment or come to one of our flu clinic days.
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer frequently, especially after touching common surfaces such as door handles.
  • Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing with either a disposable tissue or a sleeve, and avoid touching your face.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick. Get plenty of rest to keep the immune system working at its best.
  • Monitor your health.  Flu symptoms include fever with cough or sore throat, and sometimes runny nose, body aches, headache, vomiting and/or diarrhea.

If you are traveling in any country with active Zika virus protect yourself by using Repellent and appropriate clothing to include sunscreen and drinking plenty of non-alcoholic fluids. Please refer to the websites below to keep yourself and others healthy:

  • CDC   (Centers for Disease Control)
