The University will work with the Douglas County Health Department to determine an appropriate response to a communicable disease outbreak. The Director of Health Services, after consulting with the Douglas County Health Department will contact the University Executive Group and the Incident Command Organization to plan and coordinate a timely and informed decision that includes communication to the University community.

The pandemic response plan will be based on plans/directives from the State and County Health Departments and CDC with the following objectives:

  • To save and protect lives and property
  • To insure institutional continuity and recovery
  • To communicate travel restrictions and health advisories to the University community
  • To collaborate with county officials if mass vaccination or care centers are required

The University will implement a plan that has three levels of response. Each level creates more isolation and higher levels of personal protection and perhaps quarantine.

Departments should have continuity plans in place that identify essential tasks and essential personnel to complete them. Academic areas should have plans that provide for continuity of class instruction, knowing that web access may be unreliable.
