Screening for Acute Respiratory Infection

The media has been reporting on cases of Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) for a number of months now. Through experience gained during the impact of previous respiratory infection occurrences on our educational community, the University has protocols in place to help address the appearance of rapidly spreading illnesses that can affect the protection of our learners, staff, faculty and the public.

Included below is a Screening Algorithm developed by the University to be used by students and faculty to determine the appropriate course of action should the individual develop symptoms of acute respiratory infection.

The document is provided for your information – please familiarize yourself with it. Any questions regarding the algorithm should be directed to your Clinical Course Coordinator (Undergraduate Students), or Course Instructor (Graduate Students).
