THON Advises Of Illness, Take Caution

It’s hard to stay healthy at THON. Pulling long hours in a crowded space is pratically a recipe for feeling icky after THON is over.

According to a press release from THON, there might be another reason for feeling under the weather. Six dancers and one student volunteer have reported symptoms of fever, nausea, and/or vomiting that have been reported. Under recommendations from medical professionals, these students are no longer participating in THON 2016.

Due to the attendance of children with suppressed immune systems, the Four Diamonds Program and Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital need to take extra steps to keep those children and their families as health as possible.┬áIn the hopes of continuing the fun of THON weekend as normal, THON advises to keep healthy habite and “practice ample hand washing and do not share any food or drink.”

If you or anyone you know is suffering from symptoms similar to this, please visit the EMS station for proper treatment. The station is at Portal 24 on the concourse level or the event level.
