Michigan State University - No Handshakes with Diplomas due to SWINE FLU

Michigan State University students getting their diplomas this week may not get the handshake that typically goes with it.

Fears of spreading the swine flu, or H1N1, MSU enacted a no handshake policy.

"In light of the recent H1N1 flu (swine flu) outbreak, MSU wants your help in keeping your fellow Spartans and guests safe during this busy week on campus. At this time MSU's health professionals advise that all classes, commencement activities and business operations continue as scheduled. However, they do recommend taking one simple but prudent preventative measure--avoid shaking hands."

MSU has been actively preparing for the potential of a pandemic for a number of years. As more cases of swine flu are expected both globally and in the United States, MSU will continue to monitor the situation and make any scheduling and/or policy changes as needed.

At this time, there have been no changes to university operations or activities as a result of the outbreak.

All MSU faculty, students and staff are encouraged to always be vigilant about their health:

  1. Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water.
  2. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze (then throw out the tissue).
  3. Common symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. If you have a fever along with other symptoms, please call your medical provider to determine whether you should be tested for flu.
  4. If you do have the flu, please stay home to avoid infecting others.
