Any student with symptoms of influenza (fever >100.4, cough, sore throat, etc) is advised to call or visit UNK Health Care for instructions and treatment. Students that are sick should stay at home (self-isolate) until at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever or signs of a fever (without the use of fever-reducing medicine). Verification of illness from UNK Health Care or other health care provider must be presented to the instructor upon return to class. Please call UNK Health Care at 308-865-8218 for more information.
