Contagious Disease Policy
Students enrolled at Limestone University who suffer from contagious diseases may be excluded from the campus when their conditions constitute a direct threat to the safety of themselves or to others and the danger cannot be eliminated or satisfactorily reduced by reasonable accommodations.
After consultation with local DHEC and Limestone’s consulting physician, the Campus Nurse, Dean of Student Life and/or Provost will determine the ability of the institution to accommodate contagious students. Their determination will be based on the consideration of four factors:
- The nature of the risk (how the disease is transmitted)
The duration of the risk (how long the carrier is infectious)
The severity of the risk (the potential harm to third parties)
The probabilities the disease may be transmitted and may cause varying degrees of harm.
