The New School continues to monitor the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) travel and health advisories regarding the Ebola outbreak in parts of West Africa. The CDC now recommends that colleges and universities identify students, faculty, and staff who have travelled to Guinea, Liberia, or Sierra Leone in the last 21 days to discuss their possible risk for becoming sick and provide instructions for health monitoring.
If you have returned from an affected country and currently do not have symptoms, please review the following risk levels and call Student Health Services if you think you might be at high risk, even if you have no symptoms:
Individuals who have been to any of these countries should also continue to monitor their health closely, including regularly monitoring their temperature, for 21 days from the date they were last in an affected country. Individuals who develop a fever or other symptoms should immediately call Student Health Services.
If you are unsure of your risk level and have any questions or concerns, please call Student Health Services at .212.229.1671 and ask to speak with one of our medical providers.
Our primary goal at Student Health Services is to provide high quality, inclusive medical, psychological, and collaborative support services that promote individual and communal health and well-being. We do so in a confidential setting where we continually aspire to offer culturally sensitive and accessible care. We serve as a primary source of information to the university community on health, disease, and prevention, and strive to affect the environment of the university to promote health and wellness. Fostering an environment in which high priority is given to personal health and well-being supports the overall commitment of The New School to help students reach their full potential in all aspects of their lives.
