Message on flu


To the McGill community:

You may be aware of news reports about the recent spread of swine flu and illnesses in Mexico and other countries. There is no cause for alarm. Only six mild cases have been reported in Canada so far; none in Quebec.

The University is monitoring the situation and will take appropriate steps in the event that circumstances change.

For now, if you would like more information about swine flu, its symptoms and how to help protect yourself against transmission, please visit the Health Canada website at

Up-to-date information about travel advisories can be found at

McGill will remain in close contact with public health officials to make sure we have all the current information available.
