On April 24, 2012 the university conducted a tabletop exercise to evaluate plans and preparedness for an outbreak of gastrointestinal (GI) illness on the Medford/Somerville campus. The exercise was announced to participants beforehand and lasted approximately 3 hours. Representatives from local health departments, local emergency management, and state public health participated. Input was also provided by an emergency management director from another area college, and a student health director from a nearby college that previously experienced an outbreak of GI illness on their campus.
This collaborative tabletop exercise with external participants is a followup to a workshop on the same topic held on March 22, 2012 and attended by university personnel only.
