|I'll tell you when|
Still, I'm not sure I really feel the need to receive emails from the president and the provost on the subject, until and unless there's a case diagnosed in someone with some connection to the university population. The most recent letter started by assuring us that there are no known cases on campus, then spent several paragraphs paraphrasing information from the CDC, which is sensible and responsible, but also sort of underlines that there's nothing university-specific to say. The title of the email -- "[University] monitoring spread of Ebola" -- also seemed a bit alarmist, given that Ebola hasn't, as I write this, spread in the U.S. beyond the population associated with a single hospital (a long long way from us).
I'm wondering how other institutions are handling the Ebola situation (or non-situation, as the case mostly is). So far, I've only heard about Navarro College, which seems to have way overreacted, then sort of apologized. Has your institution felt the need to tell you that there are no Ebola cases on campus, but that they're watching the situation carefully? Does the institutional reaction (if any) seem to bear any logical relationship to the kind of institution, nature of the student body, location, etc.? Do your students seem worried about, or even aware of, the disease?
