    Alicia Bourque, director of student health services, said that her staff hasn’t seen any sharp increase in flu cases this year in comparison to years passed.

    “We don’t have an outbreak,” she said. “We’ve been tracking numbers, and we haven’t really seen an increase so we’re just treating the students that are coming in with flu like symptoms.”

    Bourque added that Student Health Services is treating students with flu like symptoms with fever reducers and is giving out care packages that include things like soup, crackers and Tylenol.

    Loyola will not be able to help out with flu shots, as the university depleted its supply late last week.

    We ran out last Friday, so on our website and on the Loyola homepage, we have a list of nearby pharmacies that still have them in stock,” she said.
