H1N1 Influenza Information for Those Attending Upcoming Public
Events at UNC Asheville
While the H1N1 influenza appears to be mild in otherwise healthy
people, it can spread easily from person to person. Social
distancing is one of the best ways to help curb the spread of the
flu. Therefore, UNC Asheville health officials strongly discourage
members of the public with influenza-like symptoms from attending
campus events until they are free of fever for at least 24 hours. If
you have questions about whether you are well enough to attend
campus events, call UNC Asheville's Health Services at 828/251-6520.
