Don't get the flu...tips for prevention



  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective. You'll notice that these dispensers are available in various locations at the College.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Stay home if you are sick until at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever or signs of a fever (without the use of a fever-reducing medicine, such as Tylenol®).

Montgomery County’s flu hotline, 240-777-4200, is open Monday through Friday from 9a.m. to 5p.m.

Montgomery College Television Channel 10 has also produced a video on H1N1; you can view the program on thier YouTube Channel at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpvlXH7WFIY.

TIP provides vital information to users including test purpose, test publisher, in-print status, price, test acronym, intended test population, administration times, publication date(s), and test author(s).

Continue the second annual statewide reading initiative



Montgomery College invites all to join in on One Maryland One Book's second annual reading initiative. We will be reading and discussing the book, Song Yet Sung. and James McBride, award winning author of the book will be our featured guest!

Set in the swamps of Maryland’s Eastern Shore in the 1850s, “Song Yet Sung” weaves the voices of escaped slaves, free blacks and slave catchers. The narrative provides a compelling venue to discuss issues such as race, power, identity and Maryland history.

We look forward to seeing you!
