St. Mary’s shall treat AIDS the same as any other disease that may be contracted by University personnel. Victims of AIDS or other diseases will be permitted to teach, work and/or enroll in courses at the University unless the student or staff member’s personal physician, campus medical officials, or state or federal public health officials declare that their disease represents a substantial risk to the health and safety of other members of the community. In such cases, appropriate measures will be taken to protect the institution and the individual.
