According to the CDC, Virginia’s influenza activity level is currently designated as “widespread.” This includes confirmed cases of influenza as well as influenza-like illnesses (ILI). Over the last 24-hours, our levels of absenteeism have been increasing significantly. While our students, faculty and staff have been encouraged to take preventative actions to stop the spread of germs and our housekeeping staff has been diligent in deep cleaning surfaces and items of “frequent touch,” it has been difficult to stop the rapid spread of illness over the last 24-hours. To ensure that our students, faculty and staff have ample time to recover and to allow our housekeeping staff time to thoroughly disinfect our facilities, NSA will be closed on Friday, February 8.
