The H1N1 may have hit the campus of UNC Wilmington.

School health officials say a number of students have reported to the health center with flu-like symptoms. The Centers for Disease Control recommends treating any sign of the flu as H1N1.

Officials say even though flu is on campus, no one needs to be alarmed about an outbreak.

“We certainly do have a number of students who have come” said Student Health Center Director Katrin Wesner. “We have been very busy at the health center, but we have also seen a lot of worried people who don’t have the flu but have heard it’s there and have some questions and might have a cough and just want somebody to check them out.”

Students are being asked to seek treatment if they feel sick and practice good hygiene.
