Pandemic Influenza

Western Michigan University has taken several measures to prepare the campus for a pandemic influenza event:

  • A Pandemic Influenza Planning Committee composed of experts from all over campus has been in place for since 2006. The committee has developed a variety of planning and response documents for the University.
  • WMU's planning and response documents have been developed in conjunction with the Kalamazoo County Department of Health and Community Services to ensure they are consistent with county and state plans. In an outbreak or pandemic, the county and state governments have the authority to direct public health actions at WMU, including mandating a closure or quarantine. The committee also follows the guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and the U.S Center for Disease Control.
