Communicable Diseases

Alliance University takes action to maintain the well-being of the community when a communicable disease is identified on campus. Depending on the nature of the disease, short-term or long-term isolation from the campus may be necessary for the individual with the disease especially, if a physician and/or the Department of Health so advise.
