WCU Campus Announcements http://www.wcupa.edu/ West Chester University - Campus Announcements en-us Important Health Notice 6/29/2016

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

On Wednesday, June 29, WCU took swift action upon notification that eight students living in Killinger Hall had reported some form of nausea and vomiting.  WCU’s director of student health services alerted the Chester County Health Department (CCHD) to the gastro symptoms and, as a result, CCHD visited campus today to inspect Lawrence Center food service areas.

No single event, residence hall, or eating venue has been implicated as a significant risk factor. As detailed in the notification from CCHD (listed below), the three students who sought emergency care from area hospitals were treated and released. No students required hospital admission.

WCU students, faculty and staff are our highest priorities. As such, we are taking a series of precautionary outreach measures. Custodial Services has sanitized restrooms and touch surfaces, as well as all common areas in Killinger Hall.  Classrooms are also being cleaned. In addition, Aramark Dining Services has implemented their infectious cleaning program and re-sanitized their dining spaces.

We encourage all members of our community to practice healthy habits by washing their hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water. Please report any gastro symptoms to WCU’s Student Health Services at 610.436.2509.
Student Health is available Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm.  During the July 4th holiday weekend and when Student Health is closed, please contact Public Safety, 610-436-3311 for campus emergencies.
