Flu Information

During flu season, it is important to know the facts to protect your health and the health of those around you. The flu (also called seasonal flu or influenza) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, producing a high temperature, sore throat, running nose, headache, dry cough, and muscle pain. The illness is widespread, especially during the winter months. It can sometimes be fatal.

If you are a student at NECC and you have the flu, or think you have the flu, and will miss your class, please contact your individual faculty member directly. If you are an employee of NECC and you have the flu, or think you have the flu, and will not be in attendance at work, please contact your supervisor directly.
