Flee the Flu: A Message from the Emergency Services Department

As the flu season returns, here are some tips:

  • The best way to prevent or lessen the severity of the flu is to get a flu shot
  • FREQUENTLY wash your hands with soap and warm water
  • Use hand sanitizer when warm water and soap are not readily available
  • Cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow or into a tissue, which you should throw away ASAP
  • If you get the flu, there are good prescription flu medicines available through your doctor
  • Self-isolate—don’t come into class or work for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone
  • Here’s the bottom line: vaccination—good hygiene—social distancing

In an effort designed to foster collaborations between the DeSales University Dance, Theatre and TV/Film majors, students work together to conceive, choreograph, light, shoot and edit a film in just 48 hours. The dance films created in the 48-Hour Screendance Challenge will be adjudicated and festival awards will be announced.

The DeSales University Screendance Festival screenings are free events. However tickets are required and must be acquired in advance. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
