Concerns about a possible Wuhan coronavirus outbreak loom on the horizon in the United States. The impact on colleges and universities, with campus populations living, studying, and working in close proximity, is worth planning for in terms of health, business operations, and financial concerns. NACUBO has joined forces with the American College Health Association (ACHA) to offer a program drawing on the efforts of an institution that is at the forefront of planning for virus containment.
This webcast will feature presentations from higher education public health and business officer experts. Each will provide their own knowledge of overall crisis and emergency response, with a focus on student and campus community health, business continuity, and safety issues.
Hear the lessons learned from campuses that faced outbreaks in the past and how Georgetown University, Stanford University, and University of Maryland Baltimore have approached the planning process.  You’ll also learn ways to address the right questions such as when to suspend classes, restrict activities, and implement evacuation planning, as well as when and how to establish quarantines and properly staff them.
If your campus hasn’t initiated preparations, you’ll learn why you should and how to get started. If you are already working on a plan, you’ll have the opportunity to benchmark your efforts with those at another institution.
