Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)

Student Health and Wellness

SARS was first reported in Asia in February 2003. The illness spread to more than two dozen countries in North America, South America, Europe and Asia before the SARS global outbreak of 2003 was contained.

Since 2004, there have not been any known cases of SARS reported anywhere in the world. The content in this website was developed for the 2003 SARS epidemic. But, some guidelines are still being used. Any new SARS updates will be posted on the CDC SARS website.
