University of Maryland’s Response to Adenovirus On Campus Under Review

Maryland regents OK scope of adenovirus review at university

BALTIMORE (AP) — The University System of Maryland Board of Regents has approved the scope of an independent review into a university’s response to adenovirus on campus last year.

The board’s action on Friday comes after Gov. Larry Hogan requested the review for how the University of Maryland, College Park, responded to the virus.

The review will be done by experts in specialties in areas of infectious diseases, public health and communication and facilities management.

It will focus on the university’s actions and communications regarding the outbreak. It also will focus on the university’s response to mold in campus residence halls.

The first case was reported Nov. 1. An 18-year-old died of complications from the respiratory infection in November.
