Purdue Students, Faculty and Staff Urged to Be Aware of Chickenpox
September 27, 2018

Purdue University Student Health Services has been made aware of a small number of cases of chickenpox on campus in the past five weeks. Chickenpox (Varicella) is a common viral infection which causes an itchy rash with small red blisters or scabs. Fever, fatigue and loss of appetite are also common when infected. It is highly contagious to those who have not been vaccinated or who have not had it previously and can spread via direct contact and respiratory secretions. Hand washing, surface disinfection and avoidance of those infected are easy ways to avoid the spread of the virus. A Chickenpox vaccine is also widely available.

PUSH Does Not Provide Excuse Notes for Missed Classes

Purdue University Student Health Services (PUSH) does not provide excused absence notes for students who miss class. Students should communicate with their professor as soon as possible, in the event of an illness, so that they can work together for a positive solution to their absence. In situations where a student is hospitalized or may need to go home for medical care, the Dean of Students will notify the student's faculty.
