Facemask and N95 Respirator Recommendations

This recommendations document was developed to provide education and guidance on the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) for H1N1 pandemic influenza in the face of confusing, and sometimes conflicting, guidance from federal agencies.

State of Emergency Policy

The University of Minnesota developed a policy that outlines how the president or designee, in accordance with the University Emergency Operations Plan, may determine circumstances that would necessitate the declaration of a University State of Emergency, or change in standard operations, either to limit exposure through "social distancing," or as a result of extremely high rates of absenteeism, related to pandemic influenza.
