    As a small college our health services basically go dormant during the summer months.  We are working on a statement to set expectations for camps and conference on our campus this summer.  I'd be interested in any statements or protocols that other schools have adopted for summer camps and coronavirus.  Thanks, Richard

    We're also a small school with a nonexistent health center during the summer and a robust conference and camp schedule. I'd appreciate being included in the same response.

    We aren't a small college but our university has developed a statement and other messaging for our university community about the Novel Coronavirus.  We've developed a website with this statement that includes other updates and announcements, as well as a video and helpful information.  Here is our website:

    Additionally, as a community center/student union (where I work), we've worked to add more hand sanitizer stations in our facility and have added signage in restrooms to encourage a culture of wellness.  I've attached a copy of the flyer for reference.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    I agreed that washing hands is one of the best strategies any of us can implement.   Attached is the Hand Wash disease prevention sign from PPCC.  Maybe we should have a wash your hands promotion contest. :)

    Operationally, at Duke, we've started conversations to re-examine the plans that we instituted in 2009 when our summer programs were hit very hard by H1N1.  That year we set up a residence hall where symptomatic participants were moved and cared by staff from our medical center.  This was an area the participants could be taken until their parents/guardians could return to campus to pick up those ill - in some cases from out of state and the families had to make travel plans as we were unable to place symptomatic participants on public transportation.

    From a revenue perspective we have started dropping some of the numbers in programs that have international participants.  One program has cancelled completely as they realized visas would not be issued.  Another has reduced their stay as the Higher Ed schedule in China has been altered.

    Different for this upcoming summer we are setting aside additional summer session housing for international students in case they cannot travel home.

    I would like to be included in this information as well.  We are a rural campus, and our international guest count is typically very low.  I think showing guests (more specifically their parents/guardians) that we do have a plan in place should the virus come to our campus.


    Thank you.

    Hey folks!

    We've already have some great conversation here and a real need for more information has been brought to my attention. I can't thank you all enough for your eagerness to get ahead of the situation and roll out some emergency preparedness plans, or begin developing new ones before the summer. NACAS has coordinated with some institutions that have pre-existing policy that are currently being utilized and have developed a Virtual Roundtable where this information will be shared. Individuals from the University of Utah, Princeton, Duke University, UC Davis, the University of Minnesota, and more are all willing to share what their institutions are doing in an informal discussion.

    Whether you have additional information to share or you're looking to ask questions, we encourage all to attend. Please let me know if you have any questions about this event, as we're hoping it will be incredibly valuable to your campus and students!
