Refer to Section VII.I (Health Care) below. I. Health Care 1. Medical Support a. The University will have primary responsibility for the health care services needed by students during a pandemic. Medical support will be under the direction of Medical Director and Administrator for Health & Counseling Services (HCS) in conjunction with Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and Center for Disease Control (CDC). b. Your Primary Care Provider along with the Department of State Health Services will have primary responsibility for the health care services needed by PVAMU faculty and staff during a pandemic. c. Outpatient health care will be provided under the direction of the Department of State Health Services. 2. Screening/Triage The WHO Phase 4 medical recommendations may initiate patient screening, triage and referral of ill or worried students, staff or faculty for follow-up tests. When necessary referrals will operate through normal channels of care at the Student Health Center. As determined medically necessary, students, staff or faculty will be tested for presence of influenza. If positive, the specimen will be forwarded to the DSHS lab or CDC lab, as per DSHS protocol at the time. 3. Isolation a. During the early stages of a pandemic, people known to be infectious with pandemic influenza will be advised to isolate themselves from others, typically in their own homes. For infectious students housed on campus and unable to be isolated at home, the University will isolate students with influenza-like illnesses. HCS will coordinate with “Housing” to provide appropriate services. i. The facility initially designated for isolation will be determined based on the number of students with influenza-like illnesses. A suite, wing, floor and/or building will be designated for isolation as per need. ii. Coordination will be required with University “food service” providers, as it would be likely that meals be provided at the location designated for isolation. 4. Quarantine The implementation of quarantine will be on a voluntary basis. Individuals that may have been exposed to pandemic influenza through travel or other means should self-quarantine.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
