UA recommends students avoid Mexico

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON -- University of Arizona administrators are urging students, staff and faculty to avoid nonessential trips to Mexico because of the swine flu outbreak.

University Vice President Paul Allvin said it's up to each person to decide if traveling to Mexico is absolutely something they must do.

The school posted on its Web site Monday an advisory that says travel to Mexico is discouraged in light of recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Meanwhile, Allvin said doctors at University Medical Center and Campus Health Services are monitoring very closely students who might come in complaining of illness.
