EWU launches hotline for H1N1 information

CHENEY, Wash. - As part of its plan to address concerns about the H1N1 flu virus, Eastern Washington University has added a special phone line dedicated to answering questions about how the University is handling any cases of the H1N1 influenza virus.

Beginning September 21, parents, students or anyone with concerns can call 1-800-615-9391 or 509-359-6900 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.  People can also call after hours and leave a message.  Staff from a number of departments will be available to answer questions related to things such as attendance, prevention measures and when and where students can receive a vaccination.

"The phone line will be an important tool for parents, students, faculty and staff if they have a question or concern about the possible spread of any flu virus on campus this fall," said Tim Walters, director of Public Safety for EWU. "We want to make sure there is a person they can chat with to get their questions answered quickly."

EWU also has a web page dedicated to educating the campus community about the H1N1 virus. The website provides important pandemic preparation tips as well as the latest information about what is happening on campus.  To access the site, click here.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures.
