LU Campus Alert: Gastrointestinal Concern

LUPD Has responded to four separate EMS Calls this evening at RH-145, RH-184, RH-172, and RH-003 regarding severe abdominal pain, dehydration, vomiting, diarrhea, and other symptoms indicative of gastrointestinal issues.

To prevent the spread of illnesses such as these on campus, it is essential to follow these preventive measures:

Hand Hygiene: Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the restroom and before eating or preparing food.
Disinfection: Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects regularly, as illnesses such as these can survive on surfaces for an extended period.
Isolation: If you experience any of the symptoms listed above, stay in your dorms or homes to prevent spreading the virus to others. Avoid close contact with others until at least 48 hours after symptoms have resolved.
Food Safety: Practice good food hygiene by washing fruits and vegetables thoroughly, cooking seafood properly, and avoiding sharing food or utensils with others.
Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration caused by vomiting and diarrhea. Oral rehydration solutions can be beneficial.
Rest: Get plenty of rest to help your body recover from the infection.
Medication: Over-the-counter medications may be used to alleviate symptoms such as nausea and fever. However, consult a healthcare provider before taking any medication.
In the event of an emergency, contact LU Dispatch at 3911 or our non-emergency number at (434) 592-7641.
