N1H1 Flu Policy:
"Public health authorities have recommended that people with flu-like illnesses stay home and not return to public spaces until 24 hours after they have no fever. In order to prevent the spread of disease, please do not come to class, meet with other groups of students, attend office hours, or contact offices in person while you are ill. Based on this recommendation, I will not require you to report to a doctor or to Student Health to verify a flu-like illness if you are ill, please complete an illness-absence form (http://www.registrar.uiowa.edu/forms/H1N1_absence_form.pdf ) when you are well enough to do so. Your grade will not be penalized for absences if you are following the recommendations of health authorities."
