Bryn Mawr President Kim Cassidy is quoted in the Oct. 23 Philadelphia Inquirer article “Cautious colleges prepare for the possibility of Ebola.”
From the article:
Area campuses began to look at the issue as early as last summer. Bryn Mawr College brought home one week early students who were studying in Ghana even though the virus was not present there, the school’s president, Kimberly Wright Cassidy, said.
“We were on more the conservative side, and in this case, that’s where we want to be,” she said.
The college had to pay $6,000 to get flights switched for the five students, college spokesman Matt Gray said, adding that trip insurance would not cover the cost of the switched flights because the virus was not present in Ghana.
