Flu case numbers small but steady
While colleges and universities nationally and locally have been seeing a significant uptick in the number of flu cases in recent weeks, only 25 cases have been reported at Amherst since the beginning of the semester, according to Warren Morgan, the college's director of health services. He added, however, that the number of flu cases on campus could increase, so it's important to be prepared for that possibility as well.
