Cold, flu kits now available on Minneapolis campus

Under the weather? UST's Minneapolis Quick Clinic offers cold and flu care packages while supplies last in Room LL01, Terrence Murphy Hall, Minneapolis campus. The kits will be handed out from 2 to 6 p.m. (during clinic hours) on Tuesday and Wednesday. The kits include tissues, tea, cough drops, soup, hand sanitizer and tips for staying healthy.

Among those tips: Get regular exercise, eat a balanced diet, get at least eight hours of sleep each night, drink plenty of water, cover sneezes and coughs, and wash hands frequently with warm water and soap or alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

The Wellness Center also offers a reminder: Get a seasonal flu shot if you haven’t done so already, and the H1N1 vaccine when it becomes available.
