Flu Season Information
I Live in Purcell House. What if I get sick?

If a medical professional recommends that you isolate for flu-like symptoms:

  1. Tell your Resident Advisor (RA):
    • RA on Duty:  250-420-1820
    • Back up RA: 250-420-1901
  2. Return to your family home for isolation, if possible. We would encourage you to get a family member or friend to give you a ride. Do not use public transportation.
  3. Tell your roommates (if you have any).
  4. If isolating in your on-campus residence, wear a mask in shared spaces, such as a bathrooms, or when interacting with others. Additional masks available at the Purcell House front desk.
