'Care packages' assembled for swine flu on campus

BOCA RATON, Fla. – Some Florida universities are preparing care packages for students who come down with swine flu on campus.

Federal health officials have asked that students avoid class, roommates and cafeterias if they're suffering from swine flu. Most schools say they'll deliver "sick trays" to students confined to their rooms.

Florida State University will offer a care package online for parents to send. The packs will include thermometers, soup, ginger ale, tea, muffins and possibly hand sanitizer and a face mask.

A University of Florida pack could include Gatorade along with health items. Similar kits will be given to students who visit Florida Atlantic University's health clinic.

Palm Beach Atlantic University will provide movies and a variety of food and fluids.
