News story

Update 29 July 2009

With the commencement of semester two, it is timely to remind students and staff of the ongoing management of swine flu on campus.

Protect Phase

Please note that the Department of Health no longer routinely closes schools/areas if people are found to have Swine Flu.

If you have mild flu like symptoms without any risk factors, the Department of Health WA has advised GPs that it is not necessary for you to be tested for swine flu. You may stay at home and rest until you are well and take appropriate symptomatic treatment.

Focus on underlying conditions (including pregnancy)

The Department of Health and Ageing has advised that people who may have underlying conditions (including pregnancy) are urged to seek medical attention if they have flu-like symptoms including fever and any one of the following conditions: headache, muscle aches, tiredness and weakness, extreme exhaustion, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat or coughs.
