To All Supervisors:
The Tulane University Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response and Campus Health are monitoring the ongoing global situation with the novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) that originated in Wuhan, China. As a global research institution, we have faculty, staff, and students that are from China and/or are conducting research and studies in China.
All faculty, staff and student travelers returning from China are required to contact the Tulane Student Health Center at 504-862-8121 during business hours or 855-487-0290 (after hours) within 24 hours of their arrival in the US from China and prior to returning to campus to arrange and complete a medical screening. Supervisors are not authorized to require any faculty, staff, or students to quarantine or isolate.
If a healthcare professional determines that a traveler who has returned from China may be ill, then the healthcare professional will follow Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance for isolating the patient.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your HR Business Partner.
