As the Ebola outbreak in West Africa continues, Bucknell Student Health continues to closely monitor information from the CDC, WHO, and other state and local health authorities and has implemented recommended best practices to ensure the health and safety of our campus.

While the CDC continues to have in place a Level 3 travel advisory for the following countries: Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia, it is required that any campus community member who has had travel to/from or hosted guests from these areas in the past 21 days notify Bucknell prior to returning to campus.

  • Faculty and Staff must call Human Resources at 570.577.1631.
  • Students must call Bucknell Student Health at 570.577.1401.
