Up one level

Safety, Security and Wellness

Because there is no evidence of non-sexual/non-blood related transmission of the T-lymph tropic III, human immunodeficiency virus HTLV-III (HIV), students will not be excluded from the lab or classroom in the absence of other contraindications. Because of the unlikelihood of transmission to others in an occupational setting, students or applicants for admission as students shall be regarded as students or applicants without screening or questioning regarding previous tests for the antibody to the HTLV-III (HIV) virus. Students should follow appropriate recommended standards and practices of hygiene and sanitation while practicing universal precaution. The confidentiality of information and records regarding AIDS or associated illnesses will be preserved.
