We received word that a visitor attending a seminar at the AEWC-Advanced Structures and Composites Center this past Friday, July 10, 2009, has been confirmed as having H1N1. This person started to present symptoms on Saturday around noon and has returned home. UMaine will continue normal operations while increasing monitoring and communications.
The incubation period for H1N1 is on the order of a week. Should you develop influenza-like symptoms over the next week, please contact your personal physician. If you are experiencing a sudden onset of the following symptoms, please contact your personal physician.
- A fever over 100 F
- A sore throat
- Severe cough
- Headache, chills, body aches or sniffles
If you experience symptoms such as sniffles or sneezes which came on gradually, you most likely have a cold or are suffering from allergies. If you are in doubt, contact your personal physician.
We remind everyone to wash your hands and practice sound personal hygiene.
