A second University of Notre Dame student has tested positive for H1N1 (swine) flu, it was confirmed late Tuesday (May 5) by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Both Notre Dame students are fully recovered and in good health.

University Health Services staff and medical personnel have determined that the two cases are not connected. All close contacts of both students have been screened, interviewed and treated as needed. Physicians cannot identify at this time where the transmission of the virus to either student occurred.

Students who experience flu symptoms such as sudden onset of fever above 100 degrees and cough or sore throat should come to University Health Services for evaluation. Faculty and staff should consult their personal physicians.

Notre Dame’s final exams will continue as scheduled.

Information on the H1N1 virus is available on the University Health Services Web site at and from the CDC at
