BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A member of the Southern University System Board sent a letter asking what emergency plan is in case someone associated with the university travels from the west African region affected by the Ebola virus.

Tony Clayton sent the letter to Board President Ron Mason and the rest of the board Friday afternoon. Below is a copy of the letter:

I would like to know what's the emergency plan Southern University has in place in case we have a student, faculty, staff administrator or visitor who has or will be traveling from the west African region that has been affected by the Ebola virus.

Moreover I respectfully request that you place on the board's agenda an item in which prohibits any student, faculty, administrator, staff or visitor who maybe traveling from the affected Ebola African regions from returning to any of our campuses until that person has been quarantined for at least 21 days.

Considering the upcoming holiday traveling season I would request that this item be placed on our next board meeting agenda.

It is not yet known if the issue will be placed on the agenda as requested by Clayton.
