Middlebury College has an Emergency Plan that includes the threat of severe illness, such as pandemic flu.

College Health Officials monitor websites and receive direct communication from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Vermont Department of Health (VDH). In the event that a communicable disease, such as a flu pandemic, presents an immediate threat to the safety of Middlebury students and our community, the College’s plan is to quickly close and evacuate all students.

All students are required to have a personal evacuation plan. Should the College need to evacuate, updates would be provided to students as well as on the College’s home webpage.
