The new regulations from Kansas Department of Health and Environment state that anyone diagnosed with Influenza shall remain at home for 7 days after diagnosis by their health care provider (physician, APRN, PA).
If someone is diagnosed with influenza, either by lab confirmation or provider diagnosis, they will be asked to stay home for 7 days. The term “flu” is frequently used for many different illnesses. However, these regulations apply only to someone with the diagnosis of influenza.
Thank you for complying with this new regulation and helping to keep our students healthy!
