Friday Nurse Notes

October 14, 2022

To Pitzer Staff:

Good afternoon Pitzer Community,

This week’s email provides a couple Covid-19 reminders and information about flu season. Covid-19 cases on campus continue to be low.

A couple Covid-19 reminders:

  • The Covid-19 testing vending machines are for students only.
  • Staff/faculty that would like a test can get tested through the on campus Covid Clinic.
  • The best way to protect yourself and others from severe illness from COVID-19 is to stay up to date on your COVID-19 vaccinations.

The Flu:

  • Flu season is here! Symptoms of the flu and COVID-19 are similar, including fever, cough, fatigue, and body aches. The best way to know if you have COVID-19 or the flu is to get tested.
  • Like every year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone age 6 months and older get their flu shot.
  • Students may receive the Flu shot through SHS. Staff/Faculty may receive the Flu shot thorough the on-campus clinic.

The Pitzer COVID Dashboard reports weekly cases on campus pending results from the lab.

Thank you for your continued efforts! As always, if you have any question, comments, or concerns, please feel free to reach out.

Best Regards,

Nurse Zephyr
