There's a new policy at work that if anyone travels to/plans to travel to West Africa or receives visitors from West Africa, we have to notify Environmental Health & Safety "as early as possible". What do you think of this policy?

I think it is pretty stupid. At the risk of encouraging them, I'd ask if we shouldn't be doing the same for travel to the northeastern US, or if we pass through any of the airports designated to receive passengers from west Africa.

That was hard to decide. What line of work are you in? Is there a lot of touching done. Or where one might come in contact with body fluids. I'm thinking of nursing not the worlds oldest profession

Hi tops. I work at a university. I'm thinking the policy is a CYA move because if a student or students get sick with Ebola, the university would likely be dealing with lots of panicking parents.

Notify them and then what? And what if I don't notify them?
Sounds like a CYA thing to me. Bleh.

I work at a university. I am technically a state employee.

I can just hear the parents causing an uproar if a student or students got sick.

They have to cover their ass sets from lawsuits.
