Communicable Disease Policy


Communicable diseases are those diseases that are contagious and with high mortality and/or very harmful to human health. The University is especially concerned with those that pose a significant threat to the well-being of students and the university as a whole. Examples of such disease include Hepatitis A and B, HIV/AIDS, Measles, Meningitis, Mumps, Rubella, SARS, and Tuberculosis. Recognizing the serious implications of communicable diseases on campus, Cumberland University will operate under sound medical advice, take into consideration the welfare of the campus community while respecting the privacy and needs of individuals, and provide appropriate, compassionate, and nondiscriminatory services for persons living with infectious disease(s).

 

The University will not unlawfully discriminate in policy or practice, including admissions and employment policies, against individuals who have, or are considered to be at risk for, communicable diseases. The University will be in full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and all federal and state laws as it relates to those students and employees who have communicable diseases. Cumberland University, however, will make decisions based on the welfare of the students, employees, and the university community.
