MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

If you get the flu, don't come to the U.

The University of Minnesota has suspended its attendance policy because of the high number of flu cases in the state.

Students with flu-like symptoms can miss the first day of class without having to show a doctor's note. The U of M says students should stay home until they are free of flu symptoms for at least 24 hours.

So far, there have been at least 60 flu-related deaths in Minnesota this season.
