Southern Wesleyan University has maintained an updated Infectious Disease Response Plan for many years. The purpose of the Infectious Disease Response Plan is to assist Southern Wesleyan in preparing for and responding to a possible infectious disease outbreak. This plan will assist the University in continuing to provide services to our students, faculty, and staff to prevent the spread of disease on campus during an outbreak. The University will also work with local and state agencies to ensure the best  possible response for the health and safety of the campus, as well as the local and state populations. 

The plan is divided into three levels of response preparedness. Key departments on campus will have a separate protocol for each level to maximize an effective response to the infectious disease outbreak. Communication and cooperation with all members of the campus community are paramount to the success of this plan. The response levels for key departments are as follows:

Level 1                         

No local disease transmission reports. Business as usual; regular services continue. (Campus prepares behind the scenes for a possible infectious disease response.)

Level 2                         

Increased awareness and prevention – presence of minimal number of cases.

Level 3                           

Significant disease transmission.

Southern Wesleyan University is currently at a Level 2 in response to the coronavirus, COVID-19. 

The spread of COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving situation and information will be updated as it becomes available.  How to get additional reliable information:
