New Flu/H1N1 Report Form now online
ASU's Emergency Management's Emergency Communications page has now added a new online Flu/H1N1 Report Form, which faculty, staff, and students are urged to use. (Visit the Emergency Management page at; access the form at This form is for use solely by the offices of Academic Affairs and Student Affairs, the Student Health Center, and Emergency Management for tracking and follow-up care. The form allows self-reporting or reporting on behalf of others, and asks for  information which will allow ASU staff  to offer medical assistance, academic assistance, and healthcare follow-up during and after illness. This form will also provide a useful way to track and assess the health situation on campus.

The form requests various types of information, including the name of the individual with flu-like symptoms; whether the individual is a student, faculty member or a member of staff/administration; and whether the individual lives in campus housing or is a commuter/off campus resident. The form provides blocks for any available contact information, such as e-mail address(es), cell phone numbers, residence hall names/locations, ASU work location, and the names of any friends, parents, or other contacts. An identification box allows the form user reporting for an ill individual to describe his/her relationship to the individual (student, friend, parent, administrator, other) and a second identification box allows the form user to detail whether he/she was notified by e-mail, by phone or in person.

The form user should also select his/her status (student, faculty, or staff/administration), and provide a valid e-mail address and phone number if he/she wishes to be a contact person for the ill individual. An additional space for comments is available. Comments might include needs, access or lack of access to the Internet, or other items of note. Parents of commuting students or students who live off-campus are especially urged to report the status of their student(s).

Contacts are Dr. Lonnie Williams, associate vice chancellor, Student Affairs, ext. 3355; Dr. Deborah Persell, Nursing, coordinator of the Regional Center for Disaster Preparedness Education, ext. 3074, Dr. Lynita Cooksey, dean, University College, ext. 3574, and Renata Vaughn, director, Student Health Center, ext. 2054.
