    Preparing for and Preventing the Flu this Season

    Last updated 2 years ago

    If you’re planning on going to the mall or a department store to do some shopping, you may pick up more than you bargained for. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Georgia is currently experiencing a widespread flu outbreak.

    The organization states most healthy adults may be able to infect others beginning one day before symptoms develop and up to five to seven days after becoming sick. Some, such as young children and people with weakened immune systems, might have the ability to infect others for an even longer time.

    Affecting the nose, throat, and lungs, Influenza (flu) spreads mainly by droplets through coughing, sneezing, or talking. However, there are some simple steps to help prevent contracting the virus, such as frequently washing your hands with warm, soapy water. While the CDC recommends healthy individuals ages two and up be vaccinated for the flu each year, getting the vaccine is no guarantee that you will not get the flu as the virus can mutate into other strains of the virus not included in the vaccine. As with all vaccines and medications, do your research and evaluate your personal risk factors before taking them.

    To learn if you or others in your home are acceptable candidates for the vaccine, visit

    For adults, emergency warning signs of flu sickness include:

    • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
    • Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
    • Sudden dizziness
    • Confusion
    • Severe or persistent vomiting
    • Flu-like symptoms that improve but then return with fever and worse cough

    Most people who have flu do not need medical care or antiviral drugs and can simply stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone and avoid contact with others. While recovery time is generally less than two weeks, if you have symptoms of flu and are in a high risk group, you are more likely to get flu complications that can result in hospitalization.

    If you’re caring for someone sick at home with the flu, the CDC suggests making a separate sick room, if possible, to help prevent other family members from contracting the flu. The person with the flu should have his or her own bathroom, toiletries, and dining utensils.

    Staying Safe and Protecting Property on Campus

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Colleges everywhere should be a safe haven for personal growth and discovery. Unfortunately, criminal activity can happen anywhere. While Campus Police greatly minimizes your risk of being the victim of a crime while at CTC, the college encourages students to take precautions to protect themselves and their personal property.

    This is especially true during the winter months when shorter days lead to longer nights and more opportunity for would-be criminals to act in the dark. To make sure nothing comes between you and your adult education courses, here are some tips for staying safe on campus.

    Stick Together

    The best way to stay safe is to stick together in groups, especially when travelling from one place to the next. Ask classmates if they wouldn’t mind walking to the parking lot in a group after class gets out. Even if you’re just walking across campus, it’s better to walk in a group than to walk by yourself, especially after dark.

    Make Arrangements

    Be proactive about your safety. If you know you will be getting out of class after dark, try to park as close to a well-lit building as possible. You may also want to arrange a ride if you are getting out of class late. If you have a long walk to your vehicle, consider requesting an escort by Campus Police by calling 770-529-2311.

    Be Aware and Stay Alert

    Safety is all about awareness. Pay attention to your surroundings at all times and remember that many criminal acts are considered crimes of opportunity. Avoid leaving personal items such as textbooks, phones, tablets, and computers unattended on campus. If leaving these items in your vehicle, make sure they aren’t visible through your windows and that you always lock your doors, even if you think you’ll only be a way for a few minutes.

    Try to take routes that are well trafficked and well lit. Avoid being isolated with someone you don’t know. Have your cell phone out whenever you are walking across campus or to your vehicle, and be prepared to call Campus Police at 770-529-2311 for help the instant a dangerous situation arises.

    Chattahoochee Technical College would like to help you obtain a valuable education in a safe and welcoming environment. We have eight campuses in north Georgia to serve you, and many of our coruses can be completed partially or entirely online.
