Some information about campus preparations for a coronavirus outbreak

DISCLAIMER: This page contains official and semi-official information on steps the campus is taking to prepare for a possible local outbreak of the coronavirus. This information is meant to help members of the Senate have the best information about steps the University is considering or taking and how they take the needs of all the members of our University community into account.

University-wide

The University has established a Communicable Disease Working Group (CDWG). Its members are listed at the bottom of this section. (The list reflects membership as of 7 March 2020.)

Dated messages from the CDWH are posted on the University's Coronavirus (COVID-19) page.

The group has also published a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) page on COVID-19 that can be found here.

The CDWG has drafted a Communicable Disease Preparedness and Response Plan document. This plan supplements the University's All-Hazards Emergency Operations Plan which is not currently available online. That plan is curated by campus Emergency Management.

Communicable Disease Working Group Membership

This "Guidance for interruptions of study related to Coronavirus (COVID-19)" is not a short document, but it is rich with information. Campus leaders in all corners are encouraged to read the document.
